Relieved

My heart overflowed with pride, admiration, and love the day my son left childish things behind and transitioned into being responsible for his own future. He was an anomaly, a high school grad voluntarily placing life on a temporary hiatus while holding down two jobs. In addition, he carried a full load and maintained the required G.P.A. (each semester) needed to retain his academic college scholarship.

Over the years I watched his transformation from boy to man from the sidelines, learning to make decisions based on his long term goals instead of short term, temporary thrills. I picked up a third job to assist in his efforts to graduate college debt free and when he walked across the stage last year I was relieved! His life was just beginning and at 49, so was mine.
