Reflections on May 2008

It may have been noticed by some that I have not posted an entry in this little blog for almost a month. I'm sure it has happened to many bloggers... the good intentions to blog every day, then once a week, and then, well, it just doesn't seem worth the trouble. Well, I know it can be worth the trouble for a whole host of reasons, and it's time once again, for me to include blogging as one of those things that I do.

The main reason I did not blog much in May was the graduation of Kyle, my second and youngest child, from high school. There's the whole family in the picture: me, Kyle, Roland and Laura (who will be entering her final year at the University of Georgia in the fall). This process is a whirlwind of activities and parties, culminating, for him and the majority, I think, of his classmates, in a beach trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina. For those of us seemingly left behind in the dust of what was, I offer up this letter from Leonard Pitts, columnist for the Miami Herald, A father's letter to his daughter on her graduation. Did you cry? I did.

Time for reflection, right? And amazement how quickly time flies by...

Congrats to your son on his graduation. We all intend to keep up our blogs but life seems to sweep us away. What a beautiful letter thanks so much for sharing.
