Well I crossed another milestone in my life yesterday. My only son graduated high school. It feels like this milestone was as big as getting married. Much bigger than my 40th a few years ago.
I am so proud of my son I can't even express it in words! I know he will go on to do great things with his life.
The reason that I am writing this is that I am feeling really sad. Honestly this is an unexpected emotion. Graduation really drives home the fact that he will be moving on to another stage in his life. As a parent you want to prepare kids for adulthood and graduating high school is part of that process. I am however feeling sad because of the thought of this part of our life ending and the uncertainty of what the future holds.
I am sure I will get the sand out of my ****** soon.
Thanks for listening!
