Every day is important.
But many resemble each other.
The ones where everything and nothing happens.
We chug along.
Then there are days…
where irreversible changes occur.
Some are bad,
And some are really really good.
in fact…quite often…
they both happen in the same week.
Yesterday, my youngest graduated elementary
He stands at the edge of that slippery slope called
where time beats the sound barrier.
And today, Phoebe
the middle child
graduates Middle School.
I will now have TWO High Schoolers.
I have to chuckle when I watch the TV shows about people having babies.
How at the onset of this ride called parenthood
we need to know the answers to all of our questions?
“How long will it take?”
“Will it hurt?”
WE Agonize over ONE thing all day.
And then later…that one thing will be a slice, like a pixel
in a photo of an infinite number of pixels
That make a person.
And you sigh in relief that you are relatively in one piece.
It is ALL relative.
You make this parenting thing an absolute joy.
You are who I want to be when I grow up.
And like my Mom used to say
“I musta done something right!”
You would be so proud.
