Since it was just grad week for most high schools, I was going to write a piece about the significance of high school graduation, what it means to us, and how it is a permanent life-marker we often refer to – beginning our independence from the safety net of our parents/guardians. But that all changed when my family and I went to Pictou this past weekend.
Upon arriving in Pictou (this amazing, quaint and historical seaside town on the North Cumberland Straits), I came across this adorable sign.
Someone or a group, presumably from Pictou Academy, took the time to make these signs and put them up where others would see them. It was thoughtful, personal, and meaningful…three reasons it reminded of my lawn card business. I just loved seeing it! It validated why I do what I do…to put a smile on people’s faces.
That evening we were all taking my niece and her boyfriend, both new PA grads, out for a celebratory dinner at the Pictou Lodge and in the spirit of making people smile, I pulled out some letters and graphics and strategically placed them just outside our dining area to tell these new grads we love them and are so very proud of their accomplishments.
