“Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind. Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine…”
Last weekend, I helped my friend organize a party to celebrate her daughter’s graduation. It’s been a while that my two sisters and two of our girlfriends from college (also sisters) were reunited. All of our children were there as well with the exception of my older son who works in Santa Monica. I ended up with some cute pictures to share.
It seems just like yesterday that we were so young… and now the kids are all grown up. On these last days of summer, it is rare that we get a chance to share these moments with them. Just like the song that Elvis Presley used to sing: “Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind. Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine…” In just a couple days, some of the kids will spread their wings and get on with their adventures… Some will go back to college to get their wings ready. Let’s hope that they won’t forget the ones that they love!
Best wishes to all the parents that have kids leaving for college for the first time.
