Well, you know I was broken up about not going to my bonus daughter's graduation. I know now I made the right decision. Like all moms, I feel I should always support my children no matter what, but the fact is sometimes I can't be there. I have to be all right with that, and so do they. If I go on about how guilty I feel, they'll absorb that. If I make it to some of their things and their dad makes it to the others and that's just the way it is, they will still feel supported.

I don't think Zariah was as broken up as I was about me not being there. I sent along a gift only from me, a blank journal symbolizing her new stage in life, and I wrote her a letter to go with it. She's a woman now, officially. Graduated and 18 with a baby. Maybe I'll get used to it someday.

  1. My parents have never been to any of my graduation ceremonies.

  2. The symbolism of graduation ceremonies is nice and all, but some parents are all about the show, and give nothing real in the home. In the home is where it really counts. She knows you love her. That's the important thing.

  3. Whoa! You've done some redecorating! That's pretty cool!

    I think Z understands, especially since she knows the fragrance thing isn't new or anything like that. As for getting used to her being a grown-up now? Nope, never happen. You'll get used to the fact that you're still not used to it. :)

    Hope you're feeling better hon. *hugs*
