Baccalaureates, Graduations, and Other Things I’m Not Ready For…

A Prayer for Parents:
“Lord, teach me to be kind to my kids in their seasons of change just as You are kind to me in mine.”

I probably did not iron even my own graduation robe exactly 30 years ago… ha!

I’m not ready to cry, or say good-bye to these fabulous young adults. I ironed (I don’t iron!!!) a graduation robe even though I felt that if I put off the chore, maybe time will slow down. Just a bit. I have about 60 new photos on my computer of all these children who are ready to take their own steps in the world. I am more than excited, and terrified, all at once.

Pushing 50 and it's time to try a few (maybe... 365?) new things. This blog is not about reinventing oneself or one's life, but about how much fun one can have while going out on a limb and branching out. Kicking anxiety's butt one day at a time, yeah!
