It seems like a long 5 1/2 years, but when I look back on that period of time, I think there have just been so many events that occurred during this time frame that it seems like it took a lifetime.
Here's my reason to celebrate on December 22. My oldest daughter is graduating from UNL. And this momma couldn't be any prouder!!
There was a semester at another school in Lincoln. I think it was good for her to experience that, even though I never saw that college as a true fit for her, her personality, her ambitions. And then a transfer to UNL, which turned into a very good move.
During these 5 1/2 years, there was a wedding, four funerals, a part-time job that meant full-time hours, a paid internship that turned into a full-time job, induction into the Sociology honorary, and a myriad of tailgate parties.
Plus things I'm sure a daughter doesn't want her mother to know.
But I must say that this is a milestone I'm happy to take part in.
