I feel like I am doing blogging fly-by’s this weekend – this whole last week, really.
I was up way too late last night drinking wine and catching up with my best friend as we got things ready for her daughters graduation. We have both known for a while that we do not get to see each other enough. Last night drove home the point for me. She and I do not get to hang out together nearly enough any more. I think we need to start scheduling best friend date nights or something! I knew I missed her, but didn’t realize how much.
Today is about graduation – pausing to take a moment to revel in the moment – the accomplishment – the hard work. There is an element of anticipation and looking toward the future too, of course, but I think it is SO important to remember to stop and really enjoy the milestone before jumping ahead too far.
Tomorrow will likely be about recuperation … and on Monday I hope to be able to sit and address a bit of what Memorial Day really is for me – and reflect on some treasured men who have been a part of my life – who deserve to be remembered.
