My granddaughter is graduating from high school this week. So I am looking for a graduation card that convenes the pride and hopefulness I feel for her.
Most of the cards are too sappy or too silly. The best cards seem to be the ones with the briefest message and plenty of room for me to hand write my own tidings.
I am thinking my message should be advice from my senior perspective on life. I graduated from high school in 1965, that’s 50 years ago. I guess I’ve learned a thing or two I can pass on in the form of grandfatherly advice.
Most of the advice that comes to my mind comes from movies:
“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” from Forest Grump.
“The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it or learn from it” from the Lion King.
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
“Get busy living or get busy dying.” from Shawshank Redemption.
I’ll be honest with you, none of these quotes seem appropriate for my tender and beautiful 18 year old granddaughter.
I am not going to quote a movie. Instead I think I’ll share with her the best advice I ever got.
When I was just a boy someone told me, “keep your eye on the ball.” They told me this because I was wildly swatting my bat at apparently nothing. “Keep your eye on the ball” is great advice.
I am going to write, “My advice to you is keep your eye on the ball. But first make sure you know what is the ball.”
