Oh my gosh, wish me luck at work today. This evening is the girl’s high school graduation and I cried for 3 hours last night before, during, and after I gave her some gifts. I got her a set of luggage and the book “Oh, The Places You’ll Go,” which we sat on the floor in my bedroom and read aloud together.
I told her to not get any funny ideas. The theme I was presenting was that I will support and encourage her going off to college, possibly going away in the Peace Corps, being a Spanish major and living abroad, anything she could possibly get the chance to do….. but don’t ever forget your mommy! Don’t think for a second that I want you to go. Birds don’t really want to push the chickies out of the nest. It’s just what has to happen.
