Ice Breaker – Graduation


Most weeks on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question on Fridays. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

This week’s Ice Breaker is inspired by a significant event in our family’s life happening today.  My daughter is graduating from high school.

Question:  How are you experiencing a graduation or significant milestone in your life these days?  Explain your answer in the comments.

My Answer:  My answer is pretty easy.  With Hannah graduating today, I experiencing the end of high school education for my oldest and the beginning of college.  Hannah’s transition into adulthood has required a process of letting go.  While I know I’ll still have influence on her, Hannah is ready for this next step of independence.  On one hand, it’s sad to know we won’t experience this again with her.  The past 18 1/2 years have gone way faster than I ever expected.  On the other hand, it’s a happy time.  Leanne and I are trusting we’ve done our job, and we’re excited to watch Hannah move ahead in her life.  While graduation means the end of something, it also represents the start of something wonderful.

Today she graduates, and tomorrow we celebrate with family and friends.
