Even though he has been gone for 26 years, today I know he was with us in spirit as we celebrated Danielle's accomplishment. She graduated in the college of Life Sciences, in Health and Wellness. She has plans continue her education by applying to PA school.
The lighter side of this "landmark" is the high five's Michael and I gave each other for our tuition-less future:) Still... having college age children has been inspiring, there is such hope in young minds willing to learn, there is such fun in the way they see the world, and there is comfort in the future of our children.
The end of an era for us as parents...the sadness passes as we figure out how we will spend the "tuition money"...!!!
