What Did We Forget

Tomorrow, as we close a long chapter on our lives, I can’t help but wonder what did we forget?

Tomorrow, she graduates from High School.  Did we remember to teach her to:

  • Wear your seat belt
  • Make good choices
  • Park in a safe parking lot/area
  • Get a lot of rest before an important exam
  • Look both ways before you turn/cross the street
  • Brush your teeth
  • Take your vitamins
  • Drink lots of water
  • Remember Father’s and Mother’s Day and your sibling’s birthdays 
  • Come home for holidays, bring friends – there’s always room for one or two more
  • Look out for a friend who needs help
  • Call, text or write every so often
  • Have fun
  • Remember that this moment will pass, good, bad or meaningless – remember the good things, and the bad (so you don’t repeat mistakes)
  • Take pictures…and share them with others
  • Know that you will think you’re in love and you might be, but it may not last forever…
  • Tomorrow is another day
  • Be nice, kind and caring – to others and yourself

What did we forget is easy to ask, but oh, my goodness, isn’t there a lot that we have taught her?  We just have to trust that she knows the things she needs to know.
