There is this letter running rampant through my head. It never stops. I keep adding more words, more thoughts to it, but it never finds its way to paper. It’s a letter to my daughter. She graduated from her elementary school today.
It’s too late tonight to give the words life, but I needed to tell you that it’s coming. Saying it out loud commits me to it and assures that I will make the time to write it all down. I have so much that I want to tell her….before she stops listening.
Tonight – well, tonight I cried. I did. I admit it. These kids that my daughter has surrounded herself with are so amazing – smart and talented, kind and thoughtful and so mature beyond their years. Every single one of them is ready to take flight. I can’t wait to see where their journey will take them and, yet, I want to hold on to them, freeze them exactly where they are.
Tonight, I’ll simply take a minute to say congratulations to the future class of 2021. The world awaits you…..show ’em what you’ve got!
