Don't Wish Time Away
We’ve collected her amazing full-length champagne-coloured satin gown. She’s booked hair, nails and make-up appointments. Her prom date asked that she hang off his arm months ago. Don't worry about her. *I’m* so excited. Relieved.
On the night, I’m bound to cry.
The wonderful school Holly attends asked for past photos of all the graduates. My husband and I dug out these three.
We all know time flies by. Just the other week I became a Grandmother – to my eldest daughter’s new baby kitten.
Right now my head is filled with memories of my girls growing up, of the years rolling on and everyone achieving milestones as well as facing those roadblocks that strengthen our character and shape us into the responsible adults we ultimately become.
My graduating daughter says that she's never leaving home - she'll never leave us. I know she will. She’ll get married, have her own babies, and one day she’ll be reminiscing like I am today.
Life is full of arrivals and departures. Of sweet hellos and often poignant, even sweeter goodbyes.
Do you have any "graduation" stories you’d like to share?
