I used to be “that Mom” who made fun of people who made such a big deal out of a graduation ceremony that was anything other than Grade 12. It probably stems from my childhood and going to a school where everyone from Kindergarden to Grade 12 was in the same small building. In some of the schools… we could all fit on the same school bus. The only graduation ceremony I ever experienced was when I was finally done High School.
Anyway…. as of a couple of weeks ago… I became “that Mom” who made a big deal of their kid’s little milestones. A couple of weeks ago, I was about to decide to pull the kids out of school early so we could continue camping (we just came back from a camping weekend with our Church) but my son’s teacher told me that I had to have Q at school. When she told me why…. I was soooo excited but I had to keep it a secret! Do you know how HARD that was?! I did tell a few people but they were sworn to secrecy, I was just brimming with excitement and pride (don’t worry, the good kind)!
Well-trained children are the best proof of the reality of our Faith to an unbelieving world!
Congratulations Q! We are very proud of you!! You are a leader. God told us that before you were born. 1 Kings 5:7, “…Blessed be the Lord this day, Who has given David a wise son to be over this great people.” This was the Scripture God gave your Daddy when you were fresh in my womb, it became the anchor we held onto when going through the tough times during your development in my belly. We clung to the promise God gave us about you. Remember that God has great plans for you, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your path.
