Graduation Memories and Tiny Prints

Do you remember your graduation?

I remember my high school graduation like it was yesterday.  While in fact, it's been 18 years since I wore my cap and gown and walked down the aisle with my friends and classmates.  I was super excited and scared to death all at the same time.  What would my future hold?  Would I lose contact with the friends that I loved so much?  Would I make it on my own?

My graduating class of 1993
My family came from all over to watch me graduate.  When my name was called and I walked up on stage, the hoots, yells and screams were louder than I could have imagined!  Almost to the point of being embarrassing.  Yes, my face turned red but at the same time I felt honored and proud.  My family was so proud of me.

My graduation was filled with lots of laughs and tears.  We were all so proud and excited but we were also a little scared.  After all those years, everything was going to change and we were all going to be going our seperate ways.

One of my best friends was pregnant our senior year.  After graduation was senior fun night.  It was a big party with fun, games, food and prizes to keep us "safe" on graduation night.  About half way through the night, my friend started feeling weird, she was in labor.  She had her son just hours after we graduated.

Just this week I received a graduation announcement from her son.  It doesn't seem possible that it's been 18 years already and now her "baby" is going to graduating.  Once again I get to share graduation with my friend only in an entirely different way.  Where ours left off, was where her son's began!

Life is about growing and changing.  Graduation is only the first step.
