Graduation Sentiments

My oldest graduated high school yesterday, and he will be off to college by late summer. My heart doesn’t want him to go, but my mind knows he can’t stay. I like this sentiment below because I feel it speaks to both the graduate and the parent. As a parent, my life is also changing as my children leave the nest.

The Krupp Family

Graduation is a time to remember and a time to dream,

a time to look back and a time to reach forward,

a time for songs of laughter and a time for tears of joy,

a time for letting go and a time for discovering hopes and dreams that are yet unborn,

a time to say goodbye to yesterday and a time to meet tomorrow with courage,

a time to for loving hearts to gather and a time to celebrate all that you are…

and all that you may become.

  1. Julie, congratulations to your son. Best wishes to him as he plans for his first semester of college life. I can remember these days as well with my three daughters, and I am looking forward to a grandson finishing up high school in three more years.
