The time is here. High School graduation day has finally arrived. This time of year is a celebration for every 18-year old boy or girl, but it’s an emotional rollercoaster for any parent of a graduate. How do you survive this season of change and new beginnings?
I always get a bit misty-eyed around this time of year. I can’t help it. All throughout our hometown, people are hustling to spruce up their yards, the grocery stores have big graduation displays up, and delivery trucks are swiftly working to set up rentals for open houses. Suddenly the little girl or boy, who used to run to you when you walked through the front door after work, spend all of their time with friends or shopping for dorm room supplies. It’s an emotional roller coaster.
