A Proud Mom

This journey – motherhood…it’s an emotional one.

I get a bit reflective at milestone moments. No doubt many are experiencing one or another this month with the school year ending.


Jackson left the house this morning as a 5th grader. When he came home today he was no longer an elementary school student. He’ll start a new journey in Middle School this fall.

Exciting, for sure.

Scary…a bit.

Sad? No…but still – today was the last time he and his sister, Annie, will attend the same school together. It’s the last time I will see  him walk the halls of the school he felt comfortable in…secure.

Before summer gets crazy and we dive into a new adventure this fall, I want to pause just a moment to say…

Jackson – I’m so proud of the young man you are becoming.

I am privileged to be a part of your story. No matter what adventure awaits you I want you to know that even when I’m strict, I am cheering for your success. I whispered in your ear the moment you were born, “Hello handsome. I’m your mommy and I love you.” Hear it when you feel scared or alone and know that those promises I made that day we first met I will keep forever.

That I will stand by you and love you no matter what.

And I will never, ever make you eat asparagus.
