T High School Graduation
My oldest graduated high school a few days ago. I won’t get into the details but will say that my oldest son, who is extremely intelligent, hasn’t enjoyed school in quite some time. The tail end of high school hasn’t been a smooth sail and I really wasn’t sure until the day before graduation that he was even going to graduate. Fortunately, he did. I have been flooded with emotions since.
Love.
Relief.
Love.
Hope.
Love.
Worry.
Love.
Concern.
Love.
Nervous.
Love.
Unsure.
Love.
Sad.
Love.
Fear.
Love.
There are many more emotions. Thankfully, the feeling of how much I love this boy outweighs all of the rest.
This portion of the journey as a mother has been quite a ride. I wonder what the next segment will bring.

Congratulations, Mom. You both made it. Wonderful post. My daughter just finished the 9th grade and I am already starting to feel that tightening in my chest of worry for whats next for her. But you are right – love overshadows it all.

Congratulations to you both. It was a road you both shared… and Love was there all those years so it is understandable that it resonated so strongly with you now.

Congratulations to both of you! My little brother graduated this year and we also didn’t know until just a couple of days before if he would in fact graduate. It’s not a small achievement, that’s for sure!
