To my daughter on her graduation!
[A personal moment, shared with my readers]
I just can’t believe that tomorrow my baby girl is graduating from high school! No matter how hard I try to understand it, I really can’t. When did this happen? All I know is that I just blinked, and my little baby girl is now an all grown up and beautiful young woman, ready to end a chapter in her life, and embrace a completely new one . . . on her own . . .
As I am getting my daughter’s gown ready, (yeah . . . don’t judge me, I guess I just want to enjoy the feeling that she still needs me just for a little bit longer), I can’t help but to reminisce of all the years of sleepless nights during sickness, school, projects, sports, and everything else that comes along with being a parent. Then, I realize that in spite of all the demands and crazy schedules during all those years, and in spite of all the challenges, I would not trade it for anything else in the world, and I am sure that I would do it all over again . . . in a heartbeat.
As I think about her impending graduation, I realize that every single sacrifice, every single worry, and every single tear, was absolutely worthy, and I recognize that tomorrow will be the reward; both for her, and for me. She has done such an amazing job, graduating with honors, and getting ready for college life! My heart aches with pride and happiness for my daughter!
As she gets ready for the world, I realize that my role as the hands-on mom has ended. It is a bittersweet thought, and just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. However, I know that my job as her mom will never end. She will always be my baby girl, and she will always find my arms and my heart wide open for her, whenever she needs me.
Go baby girl, go! Go into the world with wide open wings, and achieve your dreams! Be brave, be courageous, believe in yourself, and find your place in this world!
No, she will never really understand how much I love her, until that one day when she gets the blessing of becoming a mom. That’s what my own mom told me, and boy, was she right! When that day comes, then, and only then she’ll understand the deepness of my love for her, and then she’ll blink, and her baby girl will be graduating too!
Love you forever!
