Tonight we celebrated with friends and family. We had a “pre-graduation” party. We had nearly 80 people in attendance and a host of folks who could not attend. It was a blast. I have to say a hearty thanks to my wife Ellen for her hard work in putting this event together. There was so much food that we brought some of it home with us. What a wonderful hostess. She made sure that everyone had a great time. She is such a gift from God in our lives.
We watched a video slide presentation that we’ve been working on for some time now. As the pictures scrolled through, it was impossible to hold back tears of joy and pride as we watched before our eyes this beautiful young lady grow up. From infancy, to childhood, to young lady, it was awesome to see her go from dressing up at Halloween, to being dressed for the prom, and finally in her senior gown.
To all of you who read this and were there, we can’t say thank you enough. Your presence, your words of encouragement for Danielle, and your gifts were all memories that Danielle will never forget. I’m so glad to have so many good people surrounding her as she gets ready to launch into adulthood.
Thanks to all my blog family who without ever meeting Danielle have prayed for and supported us through so much in the past few years. God bless you all!!
