This is a day mixed with blessings and sorrow. My middle son is graduating with his PhD in Quantum Physics today from the University of Missouri. I have no idea what he is even getting his PhD in but I know it sounds good.
His fiance is also graduating today with her PhD in Psychology today so I have a wedding to look forward to.
I am so proud of him and thrilled that he even has a post doc position waiting for him at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.
So how could this not be a day of complete celebration. Well my son and future daughter-in-law are moving away. Even as I write this I am in tears trying to reconcile this statement with reality. I knew the day was coming but knowing it is coming and it actually coming are no where near the same - not even the same solar system.
What I have wanted for all my children is what they are finding, happiness. I just wish he could have found it closer to home.
