Every day is the end of something

Posted: October 24, 2007 in Uncategorized

These days, we are continually saying “good-bye” to something…

This Friday night is “senior night” at our daughter’s high school. What does that mean to us? Well, senior parents of the band students and athletes are recognized at the final home football game of the season.

Therefore, we’ll be “saying good-bye” to yet another one of those things we’ve been doing for four years.

My volunteer work in the high school concession stand wraps up, too. I’ve been serving up nachos, burgers and cold drinks for four years straight. Including many junior varsity and high school soccer matches. Crazy as it sounds, I’ll miss that ‘ol concession stand and the camaraderie that goes along with tossing food and drinks through that window!

We attend two more marching band competitions, then we’re done. The one this week is in Clarksville… next week, we’ll wrap up with the state competition. It has been an exciting year and it has been fun watching Chelsea wrap up her time with the local high school band. Her friendships are deep-rooted and will, no doubt, last a lifetime.

Our memories are equally deep-rooted as we tuck them into a safe place in our hearts.

I am thankful God has given us such good memories. We’ve watched these kids growing together since we first moved to town 11 years ago. Many of Chelsea’s friendships literally go back to that first day of school, just three days after moving into our house in 1996.

So, moms and dads, hold tight to those good times with your children. As I will remind you again in coming weeks, we are given just a very short time under the same roof with our kids. It passes by way too fast.

Our next “end” will come soon – I’ll share with you as I go.
