Our oldest child will graduate from college this Saturday!
As with most things, he has accomplished this without much stress and strain...
He is a blessing...always has been.
He is however...NOT coming home!
He will live in Omaha...with a bunch of guys and work, work, work...
I understand his need for independence and the reasons why he is settling so 'far from the home I love'
But to all you mom's out there...
Don't let you babies grow up...and go away to college!
Here are a few quotes for our Graduate;
Just do the right thing; don't worry about the future.
A mother's happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories.
Honor De Balzac (1799-1850),
Lord loves a workin' man; don't trust whitey; see a doctor and get rid of it.
"You tried your best and failed miserably. The lesson is: never try."
"And how is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?"
"The code of the schoolyard, Marge! The rules that teach a boy to be a man. Let's see. Don't tattle. Always make fun of those different from you. Never say anything, unless you're sure everyone feels exactly the same way you do."
In all seriousness and love to our boy...
The Lord bless you, and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine on you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance on you,
And give you peace.
