It's that time of year again - graduation season. This year, numerous friends of Pierce will be graduating and we will be attending a party for his best friend Cole.
As usual, I'm giving my favorite gift, an embroidered laundry bag filled with laundry detergent and softer, for the graduate to take to college with them. It's my go-to traditional gift.
We were invited to attend the graduation ceremony at Whitewright tomorrow night by several of his friends, but we can't bring ourselves to attend. We attended last year, because I was determined to represent on Pierce's behalf. But, this year, I can't go back....go back to what should have beens and will never be.
Moving forward means sometimes saying no in order to protect the forward momentum we've made.
I also feel this will be our last year of high school scholarships, since this is the last group that new Pierce. Instead, we will donate the money to a charity, one that Pierce supported.
Changes and moving forward......
