Time is such a funny thing. My oldest son graduates high school today, and seems like only yesterday he was a tiny bundle nestled in my arms. A bundle that I swore to protect from all the evils in the world and that I would do anything for. I didn’t lie. It’s been an amazing journey watching this tiny guy grow up to be an incredible being. I began a journal for him yesterday and had everyone at a big family party last night write entries giving their best advice. I shared this on the Witchy Chicks blog and I want to share it with you.

Take fear out of the equation and then decide what you would do.

I stole that from Oprah years ago and it’s helped me achieve dreams I never thought possible. I can only hope it will serve my son as well.

Time to go load tissues into my purse for the uncontrollable sobbing that is sure to come.

Happy Sunday.
