Well – it’s that time of year again.


I’ve worked a grand total of two weeks

Yet – I feel like I’ve done so much more


It seems there has been so much I’ve learned about

I’ve lived deeply

I’ve learned to love deeply

No more fear of letting go – or holding on

Mostly – I’m not afraid to hold onto the things I love

Slow down

Two weeks in the classroom and ten months out

I guess that makes me a long-distance learner?


So many students will toss that tassel to the side

Proud of having their grade 12 diploma

They earned it

Accomplishment – progress – maturity

I was a part of it – then I wasn’t.  I tried

And my staff included me – embraced me – informed me – comforted me

I am so very grateful

Tomorrow we all celebrate what we’ve learned and who we have become

Tomorrow I too – celebrate my graduation

About inmycorner

This blog began as an opportunity to tell my Dad's stories. I sat with him and the computer and together we told stories. It was a wonderful way to get to know Dad. He was 9. He and Mom had a wonderful life together and since she passed away a year and a half before him - Dad was ready to join her. I no longer tell his stories but have found stories of my own. The impetus to resume this blog was the discovery that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since blogging had been so therapeutic for my dad and I to get through our grief, I felt maybe this would be a good outlet to process my situation. I also hoped it may serve as an outreach to anyone else who is facing this very ominous journey. So far, so good.
