Jay Graduates!

84/365
We attended Jay's high school graduation tonight. Where does the time go? It seems like it was just yesterday I was attending his graduation from preschool!
We are so proud of him. I am proud of the young man he has grown up to be. I am so proud of all of his accomplishments! He has amazed me through the years, and I have learned more from him I think, than he has learned from me!
We raise our kids with a solid foundation, teaching them right from wrong, teaching them the importance of moral values, and when our job is done, it's such an amazing feeling to know that you have succeded!
The world awaits you Jay!!!!!!!! Thank you for being you!!!!!!!! We love you!!!!!!!!!

"My Wish"
I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you want to go,
And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
                            If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,
                                 But more than anything, more than anything,


                        My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
                                  Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
                                 You never need to carry more than you can hold,
                      And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
              I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
                                                          Yeah, this, is my wish.


                                I hope you never look back, but ya never forget,
                                All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
                               I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
                                  And you help somebody every chance you get,
                                  Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
                                   And you always give more than you take.


                         But more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,
                    My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
                             Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
                           You never need to carry more than you can hold,
                      And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
             I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
                                                     Yeah, this, is my wish.
