This week marks the beginning of the end resulting in my daughter’s high school graduation. The commencement. In school, I knew the meaning of the word and was confused as to the usage since the ceremony was the end of an era. Things were never the same after that point for me. Friends drifted apart and out of my life. My adult life commence and my childhood ended.
This is our third child out of four to soon leave the nest and it does not get any easier. We have already become grandparents. This is an amazing stage in our lives as our children become adults and begin their own careers and families. What an adventure! This is the commencement ceremony for the rest of their lives! Enjoy!
