Watching these three handle the recent events in addition to their finals and "end of high school stuff", I felt such joy and pride in who they have become.
This morning I will wake my daughter up for the last time to get ready for school.
Her final day of high school.
Tears are sure to fall again.
The next few days, we will be surrounded by friends and family.
The roller coaster is slowing down and while the emotions are sure to be raw and close to the surface for some time, we are comforted in the knowledge that the loss we feel now will ease a bit.
We know that she will be watching down upon us as we laugh together and cry together and heal together.
