Pomp and circumstance fills the air around me. My daughter was technically supposed to graduate college this week but her plans changed, and she has one more semester to finish. This time next year she will take "the walk."

Knowing I wasn't the only parent dealing with a child who should be graduating, but made a few adjustments that extended the original plan, needed more funding, and another set of tires. Knowing we aren't alone in what can be seen as typical life happenings makes everything from a teething baby to behind the wheel training for teens to marriage much more manageable. Sharing and coping through life is that element that really stands out in personality radio. Translated: share and cope as effectively as you can!
