Yesterday we were chased out of a stadium by storms, and commencement ceremonies were postponed to tonight.
Last night’s lightning didn’t show tonight. And that was good news, except…
It sent downpours of violent rain in its place.
In the end we ended up pretty soaked, what with leaking umbrellas and rivers from overlapping umbrella edges and whatnot. The graduates on the field were completely drenched.
But you know what? A wet graduate is still a graduate!
We are very proud of you, Olivia Grace. Congratulations on your high school graduation. May you face the future with courage and curiosity, and may you walk in full confidence that you are deeply loved…and you always will be.
