Favorite Quotes #2 - Proud as Punch

My eldest son graduated high school yesterday. I'm still twenty-five percent in denial. I cannot be the mother of an eighteen-year-old young man. It wasn't that long ago that I was collecting my own diploma from Birmingham High School.

Anyway, it's exciting to think about the life he has ahead of him, so many choices and opportunities. (I won't say it's a new chapter in his life because I'm pretty sure that metaphor died yesterday at the ceremony from overuse. LOL) 

This week's quote belongs to him.

Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.
--William James
