Milestones, Keeping Them in Perspective

Today is my daughter’s last high school marching band competition.  Being my youngest daughter, her senior year has been filled with “lasts” and she has been nostalgic to say the least, probably more so than my other children because she is the youngest.  For me this is bittersweet as we will never experience these moments again in our lives but we also know that next year will bring many new “firsts” for her.

In life we have to keep milestones in perspective.  I am more excited about her “firsts” than her “lasts” but cannot help but be a little sad at the same time because I know she will leave the nest in a few months and our nest will be empty for the first time in over twenty years.  That will be a new “first” for us.  A challenge to be sure.  Enjoy!
