A special day calls for a special dress. There are some moments in life you simply need to mark and remember. My daughter’s graduation from high school is one of those occasions. I know there will be many proud moments in her life we will get to celebrate but, graduating from high school ends a final chapter in our lives together. I am proud of the beautiful woman I have raised. She is strong, smart and very capable. She knows who she is and what she doesn’t know, she will somehow muddle through, keep going and figure out. I look back on our life together and feel blessed to have been her mother. There have been tears and trials but she is my greatest work and I have learned to be her biggest fan.
If you’re celebrating with the class of 2017 take time to let the memories wash over you. Take time to remember your greatest trials, your greatest stresses and most importantly, admire your greatest work. Graduating is about remembering, celebrating and then going forward. But isn’t that what we all want as we progress, just to keep moving forward? It’s what I want for my daughter and it’s how I’m going to remember this moment.
Congratulations Class of 2017
