"Memories of a face"

Last night's graduation went very nice, beautiful speeches from the peer's, and as I seen my baby walk by I cried, she's all grown up now and about to reach a new and exciting chapter in her life....as soon as I get pictures from her camera I'll try and make a slide, like Joni does....I kept asking God while I was sitting in the stands to bless and let his light and love shine on each and everyone of these young adults, I asked my Dad "How's the view Gilbert from up there?" and when we were all done walking the field trying to find special friends for Amanda to take pictures with, I stopped dead cold in my tracks and my heart skipped a huge beat, there standing before me was a man that looked just like my Dad, all I could do was stare and was speechless, "Mom, what is wrong?" I heard Amanda say, then I so bad wanted to yell "Gilbert" but the tears came and I could not stop them, well by now Amanda saw this man and said "He looks just like papa Gilbert" and I got this HUGE hug and kiss from her, she said "Mom, I believe this is papa's way of saying "I was here" that was the just the most prettiest faces I've seen in a long time and I am so happy my night ended with that face in my memory, now how precious can it get? I'm going to be very busy today shopping for food and what knot's, and I'll think about that all day! I hope all of you will be blessed some how, in some special way like I was......tootles

what a special thing to happen to make the evening "complete"...It's almost like when you have someone on your heart and then you hear from them or run into them at the grocery store...there is such delight in seeing their familiar face and I'm sure Gilbert was there in spirit to celebrate Amanda's special day...I'm excited to see your mom tomorrow, it's been a long time! (of course I'm excited to see all of you, but you know what I mean!)sweet days of summer...they don't get any better than this...if I get lost coming to your new house, I'll be the idiot driving up and down every street with one continuous HONK...if you hear that come find me ok?

love ya'
Joni
