Proud Parent

This past Friday, my daughter graduated Cum Laude from York University with a Bachelor in Design.  Convocation was a wonderful ceremony, and although there were over 800 graduates, it did not seem long.  All the pomp and tradition  made it a very memorable occasion, and I almost cried as I watched my daughter cross the stage to shake hands with the Chancellor.  I was filled with so much love and pride.

I remember her first day of Kindergarten those many years ago.  With a great big smile she waved good bye as she entered the classroom and yelled "bye Mommy".  I then walked home in tears.  She was so anxious to finally go to school and move on to a new and exciting phase in her life, and I,  realizing the same feared that I would not always be there with her; sharing in her experiences.
Graduating from University is another one of life's milestones, and I was honoured and proud to have been able to share it with her.

Here is a photo of my Graduate with her proud parents

And this is a photo of my little cutie on her first day of Kindergarten.

I love you Sarah, and I know you will always have the courage to stand up and speak out for what you feel is right.  I know you will work hard and put your creative stamp on everything you do.  And through it all I will always be right there to cheer you on.
