I am going to do my best to write this post without sadness.
Dear Senior Class (classes/we love seniors in many locations ;p),
This is the end of your high school career.
You might be thinking:
a) I thought it would never end
b) I don't know where the time went
c) I can't wait to begin college / career
d) I don't know what I am going to do now
e) I intend to enjoy my summer...it's the last freedom I will ever know
This is your first time to graduate, to be consumed with joy, fear, hope and/or sadness. There are some days that you may feel all of these things at once.
It's a journey, there is no map - because you are like an explorer. This is your journey, it's never been walked before, it will never be walked again.
I get a little sad every year at graduation time. I'm excited for you, but sad for me. I know that as your new journey begins, my journey with you will change. In some cases, my journey with you will end.
And that is why I am posting...
I hope that you and I will both work hard to keep in touch. I know there will be many new and exciting friends and relationships that will develop for you very quickly. And, that my friend, is a wonderful thing.
But every now and then, when you are about to shut down your computer for the night, I hope that you will just give me a little hey...guess what happened to me today.
There is rarely a sweeter message, or one that brings a great smile on my face - when I get one of those little "heys"....
You will always be in my heart, in my prayers...and know that you have blessed me. I know that God has great plans for you.
Good luck...will always be waiting for your "hey".
