Finish it Friday

What is Finish it Friday you ask? Great question.

Well dont you hate it when you get started telling a story and something happens and you get cut short. That is kinda what this is. On Wednesday I host a Wordless Wednesday Whirl.

A caption-less picture. A story only half told. I hope that as readership and comments grow Finish it Friday will become an opportunity to highlight captions created by readers on the Wednesday post in addition to sharing with you the story behind the picture.


As you probably guessed it is at a graduation.

But the emotion behind this specific picture needed a Finish it Friday. I sat in those very same chairs nine years ago and saw hats fly above my head. On the day pictured, my youngest sister was sitting in those chairs.

This fall she goes to college to start the path that she has created for herself. To say I am proud of her is like a mother saying she loves her children. It is true but an understatement at a degree unknown to my vocabulary.

My little sister is a high school graduate and a college student now. I remember when she was born. I could go on and on. But that is why this specific graduation is so special to me.
