We attended our Granddaughter's graduation today. The speaker used the term, "momentous moments", in reference to the things that happened in the lives of the graduates. Things like birth, first steps, first words, first day of school, etc. Having gone through those in my own life and then my children's lives and now in my Grandchildren's lives it can make a person wonder where the time has gone, and how it just keeps circling and repeating itself. It's different each time though isn't it. When it was our time we saw it from our perspective, more self involved. When it was our children's events, we saw it as proud, nervous, hopeful parents. I find that I view these events in my Grandkid's lives differently. More mellow..or maybe more melancholy! This is the second Grandchild to graduate high school. The first time I kept shaking my head and couldn't believe I had one that old! I'm still shaking my head with the same thoughts...really? My little Summer...I've always called her "Summer Days"...is done with high school? Not only is she done with high school, she did her senior year at Ashland University and has completed her freshman year of college! She graduated with a 3.8 average. Throw in her artistic talent, fun personality, and beauty...the world is her oyster! Yes I'm still proud, nervous, and very hopeful. I look at my son and I'm so proud of the Dad he is and how wonderful those kids have turned out. I feel for him having to let go and watch as they do their own thing. His oldest is moving to Florida in a few days and I know it's heavy on his heart and mind. Summer is going to be closer to home as she's staying at Ashland University for her degree. We wish you the best Summer Days...we love you!
