Dear Readers:

Ever have a day that you just know is going to remain in your memory forever as one of those "Gee, I am glad I am alive" day?  Today was just such a day.  Let me tell you about it.

First, my day started at 7:00 AM, which is unusual for a Saturday.  However, we had to get up and going since this was the day that our grandson was graduating from high school.  His high school, which is 35 miles away from our home, was holding the graduation on the football field, and we wanted to get their early so we could find a seat.  

As my husband and I were on the road to the high school, we talked about how our grandson had turned out to be such a wonderful person, and how he had to overcome some not so happy moments in his life.  He possesses a maturity that even some adults fail to ever reach.  Also, he managed to receive an academic scholarship to his university of choice, and knows what direction he wants to go on his career path. 

As, we sat in the stands with the morning breeze and May sunlight beaming, we watched him walk across the green field...tall, proud, confident, and I thought 'I hope he remembers this when life produces the challenges that I know will lay ahead and that he draws strength from this remembrance to continue his path'.  

Next, on our day's agenda, was to attend an afternoon wedding of a close friend.  It was held at a beautiful historic inn, outside in their garden, with the couple saying their vows in a flower filled gazebo.  It was beautiful and poignant.  Something about a wedding to remind one of their own vows so many years ago.  

Finally, on our way home, my husband suggested we go home and take our 1966 Covair Corsa convertible (red with white top) and go to dinner.  "WOW", I thought, "What a way to end a perfect day!"  So, once home, we jumped into the Covair and off we went, with the CD player on full blast playing rock and roll!  Can life get any better?  I don't think so.
