This may sound crazy, but I feel like a proud parent every graduation season. When we talk through your blanket, I learn about the accomplishments, the struggles, and the favorite everything...vacation, team, show, activity, and more.
You may have shed a tear over the baby outfit you brought in or had a laugh about the way they signed their name in kindergarten.
We talk about the approaching excitement about prom, last banquets, and graduation. We chat about the stress around deciding future plans.
We talk about how close they are to their grandparents and which siblings will miss them the most. We are mutually shocked by how fast it all goes and wonder in awe how this moment has arrived.
I watch you pull shirts out of your pile and see the pride written all over your face because of the hard work, perseverance, and dedication that went into earning it.
Through our memory blanket consultation, I learn your child's story and their dreams for the future. So when graduation comes around, I look at your pictures with such happiness because I feel your joy.
Thank you for sharing your most precious memories with us.
