Family milestones mark out our paths in this life.
In a few days, I will receive a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing. It’s a big milestone for me, and I happen to like celebrating milestones very much.
I wasn’t there when my son got his first tooth, went off to kindergarten, finished grade school or graduated from high school. I missed the first 21 years of his life. All of it.
But here’s the thing about reunion--important things continue to happen and we’ve been there for each other.
And each year that goes by, the list of family milestones list will grow longer.
