humor me….

Griffin completed his last day of high school yesterday.  Our weekend is full of graduation celebrations and the arrival of family members. Some members we haven’t seen in a very long time. More awards ceremonies this week leading into graduation on Thursday.

To say that I am proud of him, is an understatement.  I’m not very vocal publicly about all the obstacles and trials that he’s overcome.  But there have been many and some have been gut wrenching and difficult to maneuver.

In spite of everything that life has thrown him, he’s kept his humor, his compassion, his love of life, family and friends and finished this season of his life strong.  He is graduating with an advanced diploma this week and next week?

We head to Auburn for Camp War Eagle.


Your family is so proud of you!  Dad and I love you so much and couldn’t be more excited about your future.  Thank you for the holy privilege of being your mom.

It’s time to celebrate!

Here are just a few of my favorite memories… (you might need a tissue)

Griffin Graduation

“But the noble man makes noble plans, and by noble deeds he stands.” – Isaiah 32:8

War Eagle!

  1. I’m 35 weeks pregnant with our 4th and Griffin is our front-runner name for him. I’ve never heard of anyone naming their son that. 🙂 Congratulations to him on his graduation.

  2. Congratulations Melissa! Griffin is a great name for a son! 😉 My late husband and I named him after his maternal great grandmother. She lived to be over 100 and was an amazing woman of faith.

  3. TOTALLY AWESOME!!!! And yes, I did need a tissue. Oh so hard for me to be here and you guys to be there but I’m there in spirit…
