Graduation

Photo by Miquette Denie
Graduation day at last. Twenty seniors, launched into the world.

I feel all sorts of things. Pride and satisfaction as I look back on a year of labor, and seeing the fruit of investments in students. An amorphous anxiety about going back to America. A dull grief as day after day I say goodbye to another person I have come to love. Excitement about the faces, the food, the comforts in Dallas.

  1. I'm sure you feel like the Momma Bird when the babies ask to fly. Imagine what it was like for your Mom when you said, "Hey, the Lord is calling me to Haiti".
