Day One


And just like that-
my heart, wearing a Spongebob backpack and bright blue shoes...

...waved goodbye and walked off down the hallway
and into the world.


  1. Jess,

    I'm not sure if you saw the article in last week's N&O article by Barry Saunders regarding a great graduation gift, but I'll share it with you now. A gentleman from Johnston County purchased the Dr. Suess book, Oh The Places You Will Go, and at the end of each school year, asked his child's teacher to write on a page about his child. Upon the child's graduation day from high school, he presented this one-of-a-kind gift to his child, a purely priceless one, for sure. Your blog entry is so poignant that it brought a flood of emotions, Jess! Thanks for that realness that you exhibit.
