Parental Pride

Well, it’s over and it was a grand success.  Our oldest daughter is all graduated now with a dual degree in English and Philosophy.  We all made it through the hot-as-hell day and she’s all moved home now.  I am so glad!


While driving home after all was said and done, I had one of the moments of sheer perfection.   Have you ever had one of those? You know, it may only be a second, but it’s a second of perfection.  My husband and I were in the front seat and all 4 of our kids were in the back seat, laughing, teasing each other, and loving each other.   It made my heart sing.  Having all 4 of them together is rare these days, so it was extra joyful!


For a moment in time, life was perfect….see above. :)

What’s my graduate doing now?  Why, watching The Lion King, what else?!  All “growed up”, aren’t they?
