Congratulations Ash. Here's to many more GOOD THINGS.
Monday, June 14
Despite all the "It goes so fast", "Enjoy every minute", "They'll be gone before you know it" advice, I wasn't emotionally prepared for this day. I thought I was; really. I made it through football season without tears, I wasn't sad when he decided not to play basketball his senior season; not even his last prom brought a tear to my eye. I had been telling myself all along that I had done my job. He's prepared. We had instilled in him a faith in God, a strong work ethic, a sense of responsibility and loyalty, a love for all that is America. I was ready. I was so proud. And then graduation day came and he said "Bye Mom, I'm gonna head over to the school now. I'll see you in a few minutes." And that started the waterworks. I just couldn't bear to watch him go. Despite my tears I was so happy for him and so proud. I look forward to watching the way he will meet the world head on. I cannot possibly describe the pride I felt as he addressed the crowd at graduation with such confidence, humor, and intelligence. There are good things to come from my boy. REALLY good things.
