Off and Running

I hope I am forgiven a sentimental moment, as my baby went to college today!

off to school again...

Many children have obstacles to overcome; perhaps he had more than some.
In spite of it all, he has grown far beyond the hopes laid down for him on that first day of school… so long ago it seems, but only yesterday…

Michael, I am so very proud of you today… you are still my shining star.

You have my love and respect always. Off and running, indeed.

    Congatulations Micheal and Linda, you guys should really be very proud of each other. Micheal, wish you all the best . Something in this post really brought tears to my eyes.

  10. What is it about little boys growing up that brings tears to a mom’s eyes??? I wish I could stop sniffling after I read your post and saw the cute grayed out pictures. Mine is 11 years old now and growing up much too fast! Some nights I think of him going away to college and can’t stop crying.

    Congratulations!! you must be very proud!


    Thanks SH… very proud mom and yes, spending a bit of time sniffling myself πŸ™‚
