A quick post at the end of a long day.
Tonight, I attended the induction ceremony of my daughter into the National Honor Society. It was incredibly emotional. I sat in the auditorium, watching this beautiful young woman grow up right before my eyes. I don't think she really knows how proud I am of her. How, every day, I'm astounded that I had something to do with bringing such a strong and smart person into the world.
It's pretty difficult for me to think of my daughter as a junior in high school. That in a little over a year, she will have a graduation cap and gown up in her room. She will be legally an adult. And I will sort of feel as if I'm out of a job that I've had since a snowy morning in December over eighteen years before.
If you can't tell, Saint Marty is feeling a little melancholy right now. Proud and sad at the same time.
