On the 7th, I had the honor of going to my oldest daughter’s college graduation. She earned her bachelor’s degree in business. Along the way, she’s gotten married and had two children.
I love all of my children, and they are all pretty great, yet this daughter has always exceeded my expectations. Even though she is my fourth child, she is our family’s trailblazer—our mover and shaker. She sets goals and gets things done—and she is my first child to earn a college degree.
On the eve of her graduation she was making and canning applesauce, and she sewed her daughters black satin graduation gowns with little graduation caps to wear after the ceremony. Then, she had friends and family to her house and served us roast turkey.
Currently I have three sons enrolled in college—but my daughter is our first graduate.
