June 3, 2016.
A long awaited Graduation Day.
WE worked hard toward the goal, pressing on, even when it felt so impossible to face.

Amazed at the numbers of supportive family and friends
Bewildered at the chaos of preparation and presentation
Confused over the details
Delighted with the results
Enjoyed the company
Friends and family alike
God granted great weather
However,  the rain.....
In a hurry to help, everyone took action
Just in time to clean up
Keeping the pictures and food dry
Leaving the cleanup completed
Me...relieved to see there is
Nothing left to do to make it home
Over the event of my year
Pretending, I am glad
Quiet frankly, I already miss the
Required number of hours it takes to
Study the
Text books
Unrelenting are the daily tears, recognizing the
Value of time already spent
Wondering where my
Xanadu world will take me now
Zany days and all, I could enjoy it again..

Congratulations Sammy Paul Stiffler
May you always remember from where you have come and keep your eyes upon Jesus in all the places you will go.
