It’s hard to believe that my daughter is graduating from kindergarten. It feels like just yesterday that I first held her in my arms. And now I blinked my eyes and here I am — my little girl growing up. I am afraid to blink again because then it will be high school graduation, then college graduation, then her wedding day, etc. I’m not ready for that. Where are the tooth picks to hold my eyes open? I don’t want to blink again.
The following is a poem I wrote in honor of my daughter’s special day…
Here we are, my little one,
This first year is sadly done.
You have grown up oh so fast,
Time has flown by right on past.
I am very proud of you,
You’ve worked so hard, that is true.
Numbers, shapes and letters too,
Reading stories you can do.
What is next, God only knows,
In His love He always shows.
Bright and shining star you are,
God will use you near and far.
Keep it up my little one,
Your first year was lots of fun.
Now it’s First Grade, here we come,
A shining light you’ve become.
