I am still here. Just very busy with the end of Sadie's Senior year. Gulp! Plus my family thinks I need an intervention due to blogging. (They don't get it) So I am going to cut my computer time a bit but of course I will still be visiting all of you dear friends in blog land.
Friday morning I attended The Mother Daughter Mass and Breakfast at my daughter's high school. An end of year event for Seniors. One more way of saying Good Bye. She attends an all girls school so you can just imagine the flood of tears that were shed. The theme was "Because You Loved Me" and after Mass the girls stood up and sang this song to their mothers. Ack, I am tearing up again.It was a lovely morning shared with daughters and friends. I have watched many of these girls grow up into beautiful, talented young women. Tiny Sadie is standing behind one of her BFF's Amelia. They have known each other from the time they were born.
Mass took place in the auditorium then on to breakfast in the cafeteria, which could have been set for the Pink and Green swap! Hmmm, I don't think the girls knew they were being photographed. Mom's on one side, daughter's on the other. (PSSST, Sandy, do you recognize that purse? Your tag is even being displayed!)
Lots of proud mothers gathering for a cherished few moments with their daughters. My friend Ellen, Amelia's mom, seated next to my empty chair. Ellen and I met when our son's were in preschool. We were both pregnant with our daughters at the time. Sadie and Amelia were born within a week of one another and have been friends to this day. Our sons have also remained close friends!
Each mom received a darling little gift box.
Sadie and Milly (Amelia) will both be attending school not too far from home. (secret yippee!)
The girls are preparing to take the long road away from their childhoods and on to the future that awaits them. Good bye Mother of Mercy, hello world!
I know they are not really leaving us behind, but sometimes it feels that way.
Have a restful Sunday, P.
