One month more

Exactly one month from today, our girl will graduate from college. That's her grad portrait, or rather, a poor camera phone snap of it, along with a recently found photo of my girl and me from when she was in seventh grade. Or was it sixth? All I know is it was pre braces, and she had the sweetest spirit then and she has the sweetest spirit now. Her approach to graduation is rather different from her brother, who wore sneakers and an untucked open collared shirt. She on the other hand is sending me pictures of lovely fit and flare dresses, trying to decide which will be the perfect one for graduation. Four years just went poof. Soon she will enter the so called "real" world, and her bright face will be back around here, at least for a while. She's stellar company.


  1. You can really see that you are mother and daughter in that picture.

    Congratulations to your daughter. I have no doubt that she is going to succeed in this life.

  2. Oh. You have just sent me back in time to when she was in high school and when Jessie graduated from nursing school. The adventures will truly now begin. I swear to you. Just wait.

  3. What a beautiful young woman she is - and the kindness in her face is striking, as always.
