This weekend I am in a West Texas town for the high school graduation of a nephew. I’m looking back over the 18 years and wondering where all that time went, since he was the highly adored first child of my younger sister.

Because I work on a university campus that rents its facilities to dozens of local high schools, graduations have been a daily feature around here and will be for the next month.
So I’m thinking of beginnings and endings (which seem to come in pairs.) These could be graduations, retirements, new jobs, new family, changes of any kind…
Tell us about five notable commencements in your life / the lives of those you love). Pictures would be great if you have them!!
1) Well, you already have one of mine from the above. Rain is forecast, and the graduation is outside, so we have our fingers crossed!
2) There's the time I left Bryan/College Station and Texas A&M and St. Francis Church and struck out on my own to move to Denton. I'd never moved alone before, except to go to college. Mercy. That was almost 20 years ago!
3) When my granddaughter was born a year ago, I got to see my boy become a dad. He is a wonderful one, and I'm very proud of all he is doing for her.
A year ago...
And now, she is thirteen months, and is beginning to walk. She still loves playing with daddy.
5. Hmm. Well, the only other new thing I can think of to tell you about is that I am going to volunteer for Vacation Bible School this year, since the church is offering it at night. I'm excited!
