Today's Plan

It is now 9:12 AM. I have been up since 5:30 AM. Today is my oldest grandson's graduation open-house and I promised my daughter, Naive, that I would make the meatballs. They are cooking in the crockpots as I type this.

I should have some wonderful words of wisdom to impart to him on this day. I don't!

I want to tell him how proud I am of him. How he has exceeded all expectations I had of him. What a joy he has been to me and the extreme pleasure he has brought into my life. I want to tell him what an extraordinary young man he has become. I want to make sure he knows how much I love him. And how much success and happiness I wish for his bright future. But most of all, I guess I want to let him know how pleased I am that he has ensured already, at his age, a place in Eternity for himself. I don't know what else a parent or grandparent can hope and pray for!

Tomorrow I will post pictures of his open house party.
