The Weekend without Enough Words

The past two weeks have been incredible.  Watching my Class of 2013 graduate from college (and on time!) has been incredible.  I’ve been wanting to write them a letter like I did for their high school graduation, but I’m so overcome with emotion that I don’t have the words yet.  Yet, the words I wrote still ring true:

“Today, I have to send you, my babies, off into the world.  I have been blessed, challenged and loved unconditionally by each of you.  I have tried to teach you how to be an advocate for yourself and a voice for others who cannot speak for themselves through my words and actions.  I have tried to push you to your fullest potential, and I hope you believe me when I say that I know you are capable of everything and beyond.  Should you ever doubt yourself, please remember that I will always believe in what you are capable of and that you have no limits to your ability to achieve.

You will forever be my little world changers – if for no other reason than you changed my world.

At times, and today especially, it is beyond my comprehension.”

I was going to say more, but there’s nothing else to say today.  Linking up with B for weekending.
