was my response when asked how I felt upon Anna’s graduation from high school last Friday night.

I would follow that up with “Just like her – sometimes she is bitter and sometimes she is sweet!”

If I rewind 19 years or so....my love affair started at the first knowledge of her existence, it increased by her ever present “Hey I am in here!” kicking and elbowing...and it went thru-the-roof when I finally held her and breathed in all her beauty.

Since then she has grown into a beautiful, young woman, who can push every button I own, right along with being astonishingly, profoundly, wise-beyond-her-year's mature.

So, yes it is bittersweet, just like you, my graduate girl.

go out and give life a twirl
