What a crazy whirlwind of activity this week and weekend has been. One child graduating from elementary school, the other celebrating the huge milestone event of high school graduation.
I've been both looking forward to and dreading the end of this school year since it started because I'm constantly left wondering "where does the time go?"
Several times this week, I found myself on the brink of tears...looking through old photos with Heron, flashing through the different memories in my head while driving down the road, standing in the bakery ordering her cake, seeing her name in print on the graduation program.
Our oldest daughter...she makes me so proud to see how much she has already accomplished and what a close relationship her and I have. But most of all, I am excited to see what else life has in store for her...and us!
The only dark spot in the day was a huge hole in my heart knowing that this was a day, among many others, that my sister would never have wanted to miss.
But looking around as the party was coming to a close, I took a moment to just to appreciate celebrating with so many people I love and having all three of our children (and a daughter-in-law) under the same roof for the weekend...and I realized just how blessed I truly am.
