The Graduation Gift of Love - by Samantha Gratton

 The best graduation gift is the gift of love and admiration and celebration of the graduate's accomplishment and the parents long standing support and encourage. 

My memory of graduating college is still pretty clear since it was a mere four years ago. As a graduation gift, I was given a new dress with shoes that didn’t quite fit, which would consequently serve as part of my new professional wardrobe. I donned a cap and gown to join the masses and line up for our walk to “Pomp and Circumstance.” 

Cheers erupted from the crowd as friends and family celebrated the moment their graduate shook hands and accepted a diploma. While each person crossed the stage, their plans for a bright and successful future were announced to the audience. My plans were to work at a large marketing agency and get married later that fall. Upon hearing this statement read aloud, my now-husband shouted from across the coliseum, “THAT’S ME!” 

Sometimes love is LOUD. It’s a love that sweeps you off your feet in a moment of joy and exuberance. Sometimes love is quiet. It’s a love that you can hold close to your heart and breathe in knowing its depth and sincerity. These Pocket Hearts mix well with coins in a pocket as a reminder of the love of someone special.

 Loving Heart has a graduation gift to remind graduates of your love. Whether you’re shouting out loud or smiling back the tears, your love is there as they cross that stage. It was the love that helped them get there. A love that will continue to support them as they venture out into the “real world” after graduation. It could be a graduation gift of a Pocket Heart that he can carry with him across the stage or Loving Heart Sterling Earrings to wear with her cap and gown.  

As someone who was there not long ago, let me tell you that your love matters. Behind every graduate is the love from a parent, a sister or brother, a friend, a grandparent, an aunt or uncle, a cousin or significant other. That love, your love, is more valuable than words, and I want to thank you for it.
