Oh all that I know is nothing to run from Cause yeah everybody here got's somebody to lean on*

My little class had graduation ceremony today...where did the time go and how do I say goodbye? When each one came up for their diploma I asked their classmates to say something about that student. My favorite was Mia saying, "When Houston is 21 we will miss him." Many of the parents took their kids for a special day. The remnant numbered ten and we decided we could saunter down the halls holding hands since there were not that many of us. You haven't lived until you have kids beg to sleep by your desk. All my kids have different jobs everyday and I had to create a job as my hand holder because they all wanted to hold my hand. Andrew walks up to me today, holds his hand out and says, "I'm the hand holder today." We all have slipped under a warm blanket of love and safety together and its hard to let it go. Funny thing...last year I wondered how I could ever love a class like that one but alas, here I am. So I ask for your prayers as we let each others hands go and say goodbye.

Great to have another post from you, Bev! I hear when people have kids, they wonder HOW they will love their second one as much as they love their first. Alas, somehow the love expands :)
