It is the season of beginnings, with new growth in a bright spring green. The season of glorious sunshine one day and pouring rain the next week.
And it’s the season of endings, as graduates finish up their schooling and move onto the next phase of life.
I’m off to Colorado today with my pink suitcase in tow, heading to attend my nephew’s high school graduation tomorrow and celebrations with my family over the weekend.
I’m a bit in shock that I have a nephew graduating. That my younger sister will have a kid in college next year. Oh my. So many of the people I know are well beyond this place, but it’s a threshold that, for my family, pushes my generation into a new phase of life. One with adult children and empty nests. I can’t quite wrap my head around it. I’m not ready for it.
But off I go… because it’s happening whether I’m ready or not. ‘Tis the season!
Oh, and don’t forget: The May Photo-Heart Connection link up will open on Saturday, June 1. That, at least, I am ready for!
