Before You Know it There Grown.
We started the graduating season today with Baccalaureate. It didn't really hit me that Kate is leaving until I watched her walk down the aisle in a cap and gown. I teared up for a moment, wondering if her pretend friend had joined us. (For those that don't know the story, when Kate was three she had a friend named "goofy" who lived in the ice chest at the Wal-mart in Tennessee. We had to go and let him out at least twice a week so he wouldn't freeze).
And so, the next few posts might be a little personal and off the beaten writer path.
Please indulge me. It's an exciting time, watching your child standing on the edge of change. And, selfishly, it's a little heartbreaking too.
I guess my grandmother was right. Smile when they're screamin' and don't blink. Before you know it they'll be grown.
