It never even crossed my mind that I would get emotional today. As I walked down that aisle with the Brass Quintet playing I was caught off guard by the rush of emotions that came over me. Scanning the crowd for familair faces was not an option - that increased the tears. Today has been a great day! And since Papa Bill never got to experience graduation for himself, I let him wear my cap for a moment. Whose idea was it to create that sort of hat anyways?
Thank you, Lord God, for new beginnings. Thank you for simply being You.
