For my daughter: ballerina, adventurer, beautiful spirt. Class of 2011
An artist named Peter Callesen creates fabulous works of art from single sheets of paper.
Your life is like that one sheet of paper...clean and unmarked as you enter your adult life. God has given you free will so that the life you create is up to you. Your parents have guided you in a way so that what you create will be pleasing to Him.
Your creation when complete, won't look exactly like anyone else's. It will be a creation which reflects the unique and wonderful person God created in you.
God has given you this gift; now it is up to you to decide what to do with it. May the life you create be as complicated, original and clever as the art this artist creates from a single sheet of paper; and may you never forget the one who gave it to you.
With love today and always, Mom
