Closing Time
"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end"

This song by the Semisonic's has been ringing through my head for the last month - especially the line above. Why you ask? Well, for the last month our world here in the Shively household has been CRAZY! +Ben Shively was finishing his senior year of high school and between waiting for the college of his choice to accept him, last minute, crazy-huge Advance Composition class projects, Spring choir concerts and getting ready for company company coming there wasn't time for sanity. And yet, this song played like a stuck record in my brain. And I'm OK with that because it conveys what I had been feeling. 

It is closing time. A time to close chapter of his life, and mine too in a way. For Ben this closer is coming much easier than it is for me. He has been ready to move on, to take on the bigger challenges that life will bring with college and "adulthood" since September. I fought the idea of him graduation because for me it means he has reached "adulthood" and my role in his life begins to lesson. Not that I am not still wanted or needed, just not in the way it has been for the last 18 years. Don't get me wrong, I know that he is ready to strike out on his own and I know that he will do just fine, but.... it is still hard. 

I love him with all my heart and I know deep in my soul that he is going to achieve all his dreams and I am so proud to have been a part of his first chapter and can't wait to see what the next chapter brings. 

"Time for you to go out to the places you will be from."

*Side note - not sure this works for #lyricallyinspired  but, tagged just in case...

Lol! My two are 18 and 13 and I sneak out the Legos when they aren't looking - never too old! I can't see ever getting rid of them and like you hope that someday I can share them with my grand kids!

Haha it would be one thing if the cat was mine, but it's not. It's my roommate's. Sigh.

The company I work for has used G M Peters Insurance for 2+ years and we absolutely LOVE them! Not only do they find us the best insurance at the best rates, but personally they are all fantastic. I deal mostly with Bridgett McQuerrey and I could not ask for a better, more qualified, personable, knowledgeable agent. She responds to my emails lightening fast and stays ahead of all our company needs. Thank you Bridgett, and the entire G M Peters staff, we look forward to many years of business together.
