Prepping for the Party

I hate throwing parties. I know this about myself. But there are a few times when I know it must be done. (And rarely was it ever for my child’s birthday!) My second child is graduating from high school on Saturday, so this is one of those times.
Not that I get elaborate or anything. In fact, our goal with graduation is just to celebrate with family and a few close friends that are meaningful to our graduate. But this year, that list was more numerous than I imagined—and everyone said yes! So now I am trying to pull things together to make it happen. I’m sure everything will be fine, but because this does not come naturally to me, I get stressed out!
Have you participated in anything lately that is out of your comfort zone but you did it anyway because of your love for another person?
