GRAND PEEP’S GRADUATION!

Good Morning Foodies!

You know the old saying, “If you live long enough, you always experience something new in your life”. Well, I guess I fit that bill! Tomorrow, HUBBY and I will witness our first GRAND PEEP, COURTNEY ELISE, graduate from high school. It just dawned on me that it was “50” years ago that I graduated from high school. I can remember going to class reunions where they honored those classes of 40 plus years and thinking, “GOSH THEY ARE OLD!” Well, here I am! I promise you that the thought of witnessing one of my GRAND PEEPS graduating was not on my radar. It seems like yesterday that COURTNEY began kindergarten. My, how time does sneak upon you! I am so proud of this young lady. She is so well-rounded and grounded! Good head on her shoulders and knows how to be kind and giving! With those characteristics, she had a big head start on how to live a grand life!

This past Sunday, I contacted Courtney to set up some type of plan to get her graduation gift to her. She said she would swing by the house. I expected her to open gifts and stay a little while. HUBBY had just finished barbecuing and asked if she wanted to stay for dinner. She said yes. What a great treat for HUBBY and me. We had a great visit, talked about her future plans and laughed at some of the old antics of past. Little did she realize, that HUBBY and I were the ones who got the best gift that day! I know those moments will be rare, so I am cherishing every moment I get with her and all my other GRAND PEEPS!

My advice for her at this springboard time in her life is, “LIFE ISN’T ABOUT FINDING YOURSELF, LIFE IS ABOUT CREATING YOURSELF”! It is very important to remember that sometimes the BEST CLASSROOM in the world is at the FEET OF AN ELDERLY PERSON! We should all proceed as if SUCCESS IS INEVITABLE! The PRICE of GREATNESS is RESPONSIBILITY!

To all GRADUATES OUT THERE, take heart, and spread your wings and soar!
-LIVE WITH INTENTION
-WALK TO THE EDGE
-LISTEN HARD
-LAUGH
-CHOOSE WITH NO REGRET
-CONTINUE TO LEARN
-APPRECIATE YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY
-DO WHAT YOU LOVE
-LIVE AS IF THIS IS ALL THERE IS

We should all remember, no matter what age we are and what cross-roads in life we are coming upon, “FAITH is being sure of what we HOPE for and certain of what we DO NOT SEE”!

As you look at your calendar, you see we have a big holiday coming up this weekend———–MEMORIAL DAY! Please take time and remember those who have sacrificed their lives so that we can do what we do and enjoy in life today!

KITCHEN WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1ST!
Have a very safe and productive weekend!
