WHAT ADVICE WILL YOU OR HAVE YOU GIVEN TO YOUR 18 YEAR OLD GRANDCHILD/GRANDCHILDREN WHEN THEY GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: 1) You know how much I love you? Well God loves you more, talk to Him often, you can tell him anything, and He can fix things that I cant. Keep Jesus’ name on the tip of your tongue. 2) For what it’s worth: It’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.
