It’s that time of year — graduation!
Our children have reached the age of legal independence. Some of them may be heading off to college, perhaps even far away. It’s time to let our children go, literally, not just figuratively anymore.
For the first time ever, I’m navigating these difficult waters. Who knew it would be so hard to let go?
My firstborn is a senior. He’ll be graduating in a few short months.
While he’s not planning on moving away right now, he is taking hold of his newfound independence with a firm grip. I couldn’t be more proud of him, yet it still breaks my heart.
To help myself through this emotional time, I’ve chatted with a few older, wiser women in my life. They were all full of wonderful advice.
