Memories of last weekend are still flashing before my eyes. Hanging out with the cast at the festival, visiting the museum, and the school assembly. Listening to Richard Thomas, “John Boy” from the Waltons give his State Dinner address. Signing autographs and talking with fans. I’m still posting videos on Facebook, Instagram, and youTube.

Sometimes weekends are all about us. And then there are others that aren’t about us at all. That’s when you take the focus off yourself and place it on someone else.

This morning we will all pile in the car and make the trek down to Southern California to celebrate the accomplishments of my most humble man. Two years of writing papers and presentations and the weekly video classes have finally ended. My husband is graduating with a Master’s in Organizational Leadership on Saturday… this weekend is all about HIM. He never wants it to be that way—always would rather shift the attention to someone else.

Humility is a beautiful thing to behold.

I told him that we are his fans, not just this weekend, but every single day. It’s his time to shine. He is the star this weekend. We will follow him around and meet his classmates and professors without batting an eye.

Without saying we are tired or hungry or hot… because why do graduation ceremonies always tend to be hot? He deserves our attention, deserves a weekend to be celebrated.

Who can you celebrate today? Take yourself out of focus and shine the spotlight on someone else. On someone who doesn’t generally step on the stage. Even though they are amazing!!

Much Love,

Wendi Lou
