Promotions and Graduations

Today both of my children are promoted.  David goes to high school 😭 and Janet goes to middle school.  This pandemic has taken the wind out of my sails.  I would normally be on high movement and high emotion and today came quiet and peacefully.  Honestly, today I would not be able to take all of that emotion and I want to think that God understood that I needed a quieter transition than I normally would have had.  In any case, I am thankful.

On my timeline, pictures of graduations past pop up and I can't help but think that today would be graduation, TODAY.  I don't know how I would have wrangled everything together for both Janet and David.  I want to praise God in my unknowing.  I want to believe that this situation has worked out for me even though my babies will not have the moving up/promotion ceremony they were hoping for.

I think of the students that are graduating.  I have a big bunch this year.  I am in prayer for them.  I will miss them.  I have had some of them since freshman year.  I can't imagine not seeing them any more in the hallways.  I am happy for them.  Time goes by so quickly, Friends.  Soon, my babies who are living with me now will be getting ready to graduate from high school and college.  Other friends have warned me that it goes by quickly.  Soon, I will have an empty nest.  I don't know how to think about this.  It's sounds too quiet even for this girl that likes quiet.  I can't imagine. 

The Lord is with us, regardless.  I want to peek ahead but I understand that my mind can't handle that right now.  I will just hug my babies and worry about the things that are happening today.  God says that today has enough to worry about  (Matthew 6:34).  Okay, God, Let's just finish today and when tomorrow comes, You let me know what we are doing. 

Congratulations to those graduates, and students moving up.  God bless you.  Do great things!!!
