Hello friends, today I'm joining Heidi at Heart and Home for Gratitude Wednesday. I'd like to share with you a snapshot of our lives, past and present. On Sunday, May 16, 2010 our eldest son graduated Cum Laude from the University of Dallas. This is one of those monumental moments in life that just takes your breath away and makes you reflect on all of God's blessings in your life.
Have we actually come this far? By God's grace, Yes! Being a homeschooling mom, my children's education has been a priority in my life. And this day, I tasted the sweet fruits of my labor! To see one's child accomplish his goals and make his mark in this world is one of the most gratifying moments in a parent's life.
I know that the friends he's made will be lifelong ones, no matter which path each takes.
He and his lovely girlfriend share many memories of their college days, and now face a bright tomorrow with new chapters in their lives to fulfill.
Where has time gone? This was me and my hubby at my graduation day at UCLA 20 years ago.
I was a young bride and a young mom, and our son was 2 years old the day I graduated.
He was there the day I received my diploma...
and I was there when he received his.
My husband and I couldn't be prouder and more grateful for our son. The next 20 years promises to be filled with a day like this for each of our children. One down, 8 to go!
Thank you for stopping by the Lace and Ivy Cottage.
Till next time,
