The walk

That momentous walk across the stage.

She has been waiting for years.      

Saturday was it.
Her time.

She occasionally thought it would never happen.  The college road is a long, arduous journey.   It would have been easier on those toilsome days to just hang it up, but she didn't.  She pushed through  and never quit.
We live in a world of instant gratification.  We want it all and we want it now.  Instant messaging, instant pudding, fast food...instant is in.
But is it?

I love the quote:  "There is no shortcut to any place worth going."

The learning is in the journey, and I can tell you that our daughter has gleaned much along the way to that stage she paraded across last Saturday.  Many were the deposits into the wisdom bank that she would not have grasped had she not walked the path she has traveled thus far.

I asked her at the end of the day how she felt.

Her reply...
"I am feeling the love!"
