Our New Graduate



This past weekend, we celebrated a milestone at our house. We have a new high school graduate living in our midst. She had a great high school career, and we could not be more proud of her!

And we know that the end of high school is just the beginning of a very bright future!



In her remarks to the graduating class, our school board president said, "Understand what you are created for and fulfill that call ... so much has been poured into you for so many years."

This statement resonated with me. Our daughter was blessed to have many inspiring music instructors over the years who provided a host of enriching experiences, all of which filled her to the brim with knowledge and potential.

I believe that our daughter does understand what she was created for and WILL fulfill that call: Somewhere in this world are beginning band students -- just now learning how to play their instruments -- who will be very lucky to have her one day as their high school band director.

Then she can begin to fill others with all that has been poured into her. I cannot wait to see that process unfold!

Hooray! And as a former band drop-out because of a horrible old-man band direction, I say Hooray for Bailey's calling!
