My Comments: My day is coming and I would be lying if I didn’t say I dread it.  As much as I want my boy to go out in the world and thrive, I know I will miss him greatly.  As I write this, today is the first day of his senior year in high school. A year from now he will likely be off to come college.  I get reflective even now as I think about it.
