An important milestone

I love milestones. I love other people's milestone moments. I really enjoy celebrating anything good. Birthdays, weddings, births, graduations . . . any reason to celebrate the goodness in life.
This past weekend, my nephew graduated from highschool. I can remember when he was a little mischievous boy. Now he is on the brink of his future.

I really enjoyed the ceremony and watching all the families smile with pride, watch moms (and dads too) wipe away a tear or two, friends giving high fives and hugs. It was really very cool. My nephew was lucky enough to graduate at Red Rocks Amphitheater. It was a stunning backdrop. We saw the sun set and the twinkling lights of Denver. The moon was sitting on the beautiful red rocks like it was watching the festivities.

This is my nephew with my brother and his wonderful wife. Good job Mom and Dad!

Congrats to the Class of 2010!

May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

The rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you:

May you see your children's children.

May you be poor in misfortune,

Rich in blessings.

May you know nothing but happiness

From this day forward.

May the road rise up to meet you

May the wind be always at your back

May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home

And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,

May blue be the skies above you,

May pure be the joys that surround you,

May true be the hearts that love you.
