When I was born, my mom was still in high school. I can’t even imagine how hard that must have been for her. I am sure she was scared and worried about the future. However, she was determined and always did the best she could.
When I hear this song, I think about my mother. I think about how hard those early years were for her. I admire her for all she did and for always being there for me.
I loved this song when I was young and it was still new. However, many years have passed and it makes a lot more sense to me now.
It’s senior prom night, and I just dropped off Gwen. This can’t be right. It seems like only a couple of years ago, I was a high school senior. I was the one running off to school events.
In reality, it’s been a couple of decades. Where did all those years go, and how could they have disappeared in the blink of an eye?
I also wonder what is my mom thinking tonight? Her daughter just drove her granddaughter to the senior prom. That’s got to feel weird.
