My Hope for You

A few minutes ago, I loaded more than 900 pictures onto my computer.
Here is one I want to share with you:

Those robes are buried in closets.
That grass watched me take a piece of paper, a piece of paper that ended a chapter for me.
These hands belong to some of the women I love most in the world.
This ring connects me to a long history of women, a history of fighters, free thinkers built with a certain quickness and spirit.

I am proud of where I come from.
I am thankful for Meredith College.
Whoever you are, may you be given the opportunity to know the kind of joy and challenge I know in that place.

Cheers to you.



  1. um, I think I might just print this post and frame it. Beautiful my friend.

  2. Beautifully written, as expected. :) Thank you for sharing your talents with us!

  3. Whitney,

    You said that beautifully. Thought I do not have a graduation picture like this (but should have), I do have graduation pictures that bring about the same emotions.

    I miss that place so much already. I can't imagine how it will fill returning to school in a few weeks -- but not returning to Meredith.
