Our daughter is graduating today from community college
and transferring to a university in the fall to work on her BA.
We’re so excited for this new chapter in her life
and so very proud of her hard work.
She especially didn’t let some daunting speed bumps stop her
or even slow her down to reaching this goal.
Her dedication and perseverance inspires everyone
who knows her…

We are so proud of Steph. She has worked hard these past 3 years and now has a double major to prove it. Steph, you are a beautiful girl, inside and out!!! Love you.
Thanks, Susie, I’ll convey your loving comment to her! We had fun last night and it was “happily” emotional, as well! xoxo
Oh boy do I know what you’re talking about! Huge congratulations to your accomplished daughter on her new adventure, and to you two, too! 😀
I smiled when I read your first sentence, Kathryn, and it’s all worth it, isn’t it? 🙂 Thanks so much for your congratulation wishes! Hugs!
congratulations! So true! Studying children always need money! 🙂
Thanks so much, Ina, and yes, we donate to the college jar often, which feels more like a bucket! 🙂 But, it’s very worth it and she has worked very hard to move on like she will be doing…and our son is starting this fall, as well, graduating in 2 weeks from high school. 🙂
Heartfelt congratulations to your daughter! An especially wonderful accomplishment considering what might’ve thrown her off her path. You must be very proud of her! XO ♥
Thanks so much, Diane, for your loving comment and your insight is one of the many reasons we are so proud of her…she could have given up and instead, she persevered, which is a big lesson for her family and friends. Many hugs to you! xo ♥
loved the “take my checkbook” comment Susie
Thanks, Susie, and for taking the time to visit here! xo
