In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
~ Khalil Gibran
We had the great pleasure of going to see Miss L’s final parade last night. Didn’t get home until 2 a.m., but it was well worth it. Today, everyone is taking it slowly on such a rainy summer day.
To see the culmination of something that you know your little one worked so hard for is heart warming. I don’t think this experience can be replicated anywhere else. The camaraderie, the spirit, the energy, whatever you want to call it, it’s pretty amazing. I didn’t know how much cadets would bring to our family and how my kids would grow in so many ways because of being part of this extended family. The six weeks that Miss L was gone were long, but I can see how much she’s loved being with friends from different parts of the province, and how much she’s grown. I hope that little man finds it just as awesome as she does.
