Posted by Janice, Editor-in-Chief
The lack of posts last week was due primarily to what has been my number one priority for the last eighteen years - to see my oldest son graduate and go off to college. I spent the week dealing with a wide range of emotions, too. I was happy to see my son prepare for a new chapter in his life (it's a new chapter for me, too). I am sad to see him leave because he makes me laugh incessantly with his odd humor (he gets that from me). I am also nervous about him being in the world and I can no longer protect him from the big bad wolf (or not-so-nice girls). But as we were driving on Friday, I could not contain my emotions as tears rolled down my cheek at the thought that my little baby (well he wasn't so little as a baby - he's 6'4", 200 pounds now) is on his own. There isn't any love in the world that compares to how I love my sons. It can not be defined in words. So I am spending today regrouping and starting my journey forward on a similar path with my youngest son to his adulthood. Here's to change! New posts will start tomorrow.
