My sister graduated from high school today. I cannot tell you how proud I am of her and how bright this girl’s future is. She will be leaving home for Coastal Carolina University in a couple of months and I will watch her go with both a smile and a heavy heart.
Ten years separate Hilary and I and as such, we don’t always understand each others’ positions on things, but when I have needed someone to talk to, she always listens and gives me her opinion and I try to be the same for her. I know she will be successful in her life… I know that beyond a shadow of a doubt.
She’s brilliant, resourceful and beautiful, loving and giving, with a strong work ethic and a hearty sense of responsibility for herself and her actions. She’s what I want my daughters to be like when they are 17.
I love you Hilary. I’m sorry I wasn’t there to watch you graduate, but my heart was with you, my mind was on you and my eyes were on the clock, picturing you walking into the next stage of your life.
