A very Special Day


The 29th June 2017 was indeed a very special day in the life of my granddaughter Melissa.
This date was her 18th birthday and also the day she graduated from high school. I don’t want to brag (yes I do) she graduated with high honours. The Grad Ceremony was held at the Forum in  Halifax and the reason for this was the high number of grads. There was a total of 458 and trust me when I say the forum as very crowded and very warm. Fortunately Melissa was 73rd on the list so I was able to escape the heat faster than most.
On the same morning we each gave Melissa her birthday gifts. However, her big moment came when her Mom handed her a small package. Melissa’s mouth fell open when she saw what was inside, a key!. Yes that’s the car in the two attached photo’s and that is what the key was for. Its not a new car, but I don’t think that bothered her she was over the moon with excitement. Its a really nice little 2005 Corolla in nice condition and has most of the bells and whistles. Things like a sun roof, aircon, cruise control, p/w p/b p/l ,p/s  etc etc. Once her Dad got a new plate she was off and running, we didn’t see a lot of her in the remainder of the weekend.
Its so hard to imagine this tiny little adorable five year old is finished with high school and about to start university. She is registered at NSCAD in Halifax, specialising in arts, design and painting. While I’m very proud of her I still miss my little five year old sunflower.
Well done Melissa you are very special and will go far in your chosen career.
God Bless and keep reading
