A week of robes
My son is being confirmed at church in the morning and his robe is white.
My daughter is graduating from high school in a week or so, and from cosmetology school on Tuesday; her robe is green.
There are two robes hanging in my laundry room that represent big transitions in my children's and my life. How the heck did these robes get here so quickly?
I will never regret playing with action figures and blowing bubbles with my kids instead of worrying about dusting the furniture. I do regret not really understanding how quickly they would grow to be as tall or taller than me.
These robes got here too fast.
And still somehow, I can't wait to see what they'll look like once they put them on - and where they will go from there.
What an adventure it is and will be.
White robe - Green robe.
It's time to get dressed for what's next.
