As I helped Jelo put on his white gown and mortar board, I couldn't help but fast forward 13 years down the road to when he'll put his on high school graduation gown. I realized 13 years isn't too far away. This is when the tears began.
As I watched him participate in the processional into the ceremony, I got that lump in my throat and tears in my eyes.
I wasn't going to cry as he sang with all his heart during the performances - I couldn't hold back the tears!
