Tis the Season for Celebration

Tis the season for celebration. Graduations, Weddings, commencements into new stages of life are oft times celebrated in June.

I have the pleasure this year of traveling to Michigan for my nephews graduation. He is a senior athlete. I am looking forward to meeting his friends and seeing the town he has been growing up in with his mother and her fanmily.

Our arrival was greeted by sunlight and warm weather. Today, the day of the schedule graduation, it's raining. Rain. A fresh new beginning for the class of 2010. I am so proud of my nephew and wish him great success as he starts his walk through this journey of life.

Enjoy this season.
