Once a parent, always a parent. However, as we work through this parenting role with our children, we have to keep redefining it.
I got together with a friend of mine this past week whose daughter had her high school graduation ceremony and supper a week prior. I was asking her how everything went. Of course, we went through the usual chatter when you talk about a child graduating. It was a beautiful ceremony, great supper, yada yada.
