So Much Still to Do!

   Sitting here sipping my coffee..staring over my list of things to do. Graduation is this weekend and it seems graduating is hard work. While I did manage to get all the invitations out, I have received very few RSVP's. The dress has been purchased, and the shoes..however, I just realized the cap and gown are terribly wrinkled. Only yesterday did I realize we needed to decorate a table for a reception time- what on earth goes on that? decorating has never been my strong point. Then, the after graduation party...On and on it goes!
   In the still hush of this moment I try to remember the purpose; I am celebrating a young girl's educational accomplishments. Reflecting on her past twelve years of education I realize she has done so many things! Art and piano lessons- decorating cakes and 4-H- trained horses and raised poultry, goats, donkeys, dogs and there was that one cow- she has volunteered, babysat, learned to drive and to aide the elderly--gone on mission trips and youth events---she has done so many things!
   With all the accomplishments she has made (including duel credit studies with honors) her accomplishments are not done; the list is not complete. Plans are pondered and ideas sparked- becoming a therapist, having a family someday....laughing at her dad and I as "old people". Yes, it seems with all this behind her, there is so very much still ahead.
   Right now, my list still waits--the time to ponder is over. With my cup of coffee gone I need to get moving. Before this graduation takes place there is still so much to do!
