gradumucation weekend 2010.

Monday, May 17, 2010

This weekend was so good.  I think this year is the first year ever that I have really appreciated goodness.  That I have really stopped and said, "What a blessed day we're having," or, "Look at this sunshine.  Isn't it nice?"  That sounds terribly cheesy but I'm serious.  I definitely enjoyed life before but I moved with it, quickly, as it so often moves.  But sometimes, only recently, I will stop amidst its moving and think how nice the weather is or how special the time with friends is.  Is that weird?  Is that just growing up?  Can you not answer because you're throwing up a little in your mouth?

Anyway, this weekend was no exception.  It was graduation weekend at the college.  And while I am not a big attendee of graduations that aren't my own (is anyone?), this was a particularly special one.  A good friend was graduating and my husband was finally revealing a book--three years in the making--that is a tribute to a fellow professor who has worked at the school for, I think, 49 years (!!) and who is approaching his 75th birthday.  And while all of that is incredible, perhaps his work in bridging the gap between Jewish and Christian relationships in the U.S. (hear hear!!) and abroad is the most significant.  Needless to say, he is somewhat of a legend at the college... and it doesn't stop there.  So, Steve was finally able to reveal this book which he was both a contributor and editor for after three years of secrecy.  A lot went into this and I am so proud of my husband.

Of course when graduation comes to town, so do friends.  There were some very lovely ladies that I spent the weekend with too.  Hurrah for gradumucation.

steve signs copies; marv signs copies.  you want a signed copy?!
