Bursting With Pride!

What an amazing end to a stressful week!

My week consisted of meeting after meeting, due dates for huge referral packets for school and term projects for the class I am taking, all topped off by my fun-filled jury duty experience.  It’s been longer than long.

But today I watched my son process into the auditorium where he last sat as an incoming freshman during the Opening Convocation at his college.  He sang his last song as part of his college choir.  And then he walked across the stage, shook hands with his college President, and received his Bachelor of Science degree.  Two degrees, actually…one just wasn’t enough for him!

Summa Cum Laude.

Phi Beta Kappa.

There were bagpipes, people!

His four years of college have taken him to France, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.  He has learned to speak a foreign language fluently, navigate a foreign country on his own, solve unbelievably challenging mathematical equations, and discuss string theory with brilliant physicists.  It’s been quite a ride.  I still cannot believe this is the tiny 6 pound boy that I brought gingerly home from the hospital 21 years ago.  I was afraid he would break, he was so small.  And now look at all that he has accomplished.

I love him dearly, and I have never been more proud of him!

Help Out a Fellow Survivor

Hi there! Today, I have a quick plug and a request. We all have to stand together in this mess. This young woman has made a video to get a scholarship to help her in her schooling. She would like to use her degree to help survivors of rape and sexual abuse. What a great career goal! I had scholarships all through college.  Both of my sons are enjoying large scholarships.  As a parent, I cannot tell you what a Godsend this money is.  A private college can cost over $40,000 a year.  A year!!  And public universities aren’t that far behind.  My youngest son’s “cheap” public university is going to cost almost $20,000 each year.  Follow the link and vote for her video. Let’s give her a hand and help our fellow survivors in the process.

(I had to “like” the page on Facebook in order to see it.  You will need a Facebook account to vote, I would imagine)
