If you follow my blog for any time, you have noticed that there haven’t been a whole lot of blog posts this month. Part of that happens every year around this time. It is when my daughter’s schooling is coming to a close for this school year. However, this year it is a lot different.
This chapter of her life. The end of her high school years are coming to a close. So, in that we have been trying to get things ready for her graduation. To figure out how they are planning to do that with the state of the world we live in currently.
Not to mention, that while I have joked many times about being young enough to enjoy the fact my kids will be graduated while I’m still fairly young, there is still a sense of sadness with it all. She is the last of our chickadees.
While we are proud of each and every one of our children for the things that they have accomplished and continue to accomplish, it is still something else entirely to realize you won’t even be forty by the time the last of your kids graduates. There is a sense of wonder in that and a bit of fear. A lot of things have opened up for the hubby man and I.
Yet, we have no idea what to do with all these new found decisions to be made. So, we make none. We stay in a place of stagnation.
In part, I believe that is due to the state of the world. Mostly, I believe that is the way the hubby man prefers to live. There are no disappointments if you live a life without expectations.
Anyway, as we come closer to the close of May, I consistently look at my calendar and think…soon, soon she will be a high school graduate and will be off to college a few short months later. It is exhilarating and a little sad to see her go, but like the older two that came before her, I couldn’t be more proud or excited to see where her life takes her as well.
There are so many new opportunities that lay before the hubby man and I, that we will need to figure out where we would like to explore as well. A new chapter in our lives as well. I cannot wait to see where the rest of our lives take us either.
Until next time, remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
