There are but a handful of truly memorable days in each of our lives. The day we graduate from high school is one of the first. Today I experienced another memorable day as I watched my daughter graduate from high school. It was just a perfect day, utterly satisfying and completely her day.
Going forward there will be other truly memorable days: graduation from college, getting married, the birth of children and perhaps grandchildren. Each of these days will be memorable in their own right because each marks a new beginning, a greater unfolding of life and all its potential.
Today was my daughter’s commencement. It is not the end; it’s the beginning.
