Graduations

Tomorrow (Thursday) Paige graduates from middle school and on Friday, JJ has his last day of elementary school.  They will be experiencing milestones in their lives but they will be doing it without the physical presence of their Dad.  This carries with it a bittersweet feel and causes all our hearts to feel a bit heavy.  

I'm told that the year of firsts is the hardest---first time celebrating holidays without him, first time vacationing without him, first time weathering a storm through the night without him, first time hosting friends without him, and this first time of childhood milestones without him. 

I wish I knew some magic words or actions to make everyone feel better but I don't so I'll just tell my kids how proud I am of them and all their hard work through the hardest year of their lives and and how proud their Dad is of them and how he is watching them and sharing this special time with them even though they can't see him.

We all miss him every moment of every day.  I know time will heal but this year of firsts will not be easy.

Xoxo,
Julie
