Comments: The Things You Told Me

She'll be there. You just won't be able to see her. If you open your mind enough you will be able to feel her presence. She will not let a little thing like physical death stop her from seeing her grand daughter graduate. Congratulations on you Masters. Man, I feel old. I finished my Masters in the early 1980s. Enjoy life while you're young dear. Old father times runs a lot faster after you get out of college.

Have a nice day tomorrow.

:-)

I understand what you're dealing with. My grandmother passed away before she could see my college graduation. Not the same thing, but still.

I found it was nice to wear a piece of her jewelry (in her case, her sorority pin) to remind me. I also wore something from my other grandmother and my uncle, both of whom were supportive of my education.

By the way, I meant to wear the jewelry DURING the actual ceremony. I wore mine pined to one of my honor society ornaments.
