"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

countdown to graduation

I looked at the calendar today. 

There was a birthday (a friend's), a doctor's appointment in the afternoon, and a reminder that Thursday is Cinco de Mayo.  A little below the immediate reminders was a little notation for May 21st. 

Graduation day! 

It is hard to believe that the little girl I gave birth to so many years ago is graduating high school in a few short weeks!  We have two girls graduating this May, in fact, and it just doesn't seem possible.  Where did the time go?  What happened to the cute little girls that used to play with dolls and dream of becoming princesses? 

I guess things change. 

The truth is, no matter how hard we try, nothing stays the same.  And that's ok.  Life is about change, and growth, and exploring new opportunities.  The girls have so much to look forward to.

But first, they need to get through the next few weeks and get those diplomas.

I will be taking the days between now and then one at a time...starting with tomorrow and a trip to traffic court! 

I could have done without THAT reminder on my May calendar!

Until the next time...I'll up at seven to fight the rush hour traffic!
