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.
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.Unknown
