Topic: Feeling down today.....
This has been a really tough weekend. The good news is my beloved son (in whom I am well pleased) graduated from Elon School of Law this past Sunday. The saddest news is that his Grandmother was not there to take part in all of the ceremonies.
My son was in his Grandmother's office one day and was telling her he was not really challenged by working in the insurance/financial planning industry. She mentioned the new law school in Greensboro and that maybe he should think about a law degree. He said it might be interesting. She opened her desk drawer and handed him the application. There were over 800 applicants for the 117 spaces. My son was accepted and 3 years later received his J.D. on Sunday afternoon.
I do believe my Mom had the best seat in the theatre on Sunday but I feel cheated she was not sitting by me cheering her grandson. After the ceremony as we got ready to return home to New Bern, I went to the cemetary and placed HER Ticket to the ceremony on her grave.
It still astounds me how much this monster of a disease can infiltrate our lives and happiness. The sadness has abated for the most part but I'm still blindsided by grief every now and then.
Ahhh.....the journey still continues.....
Hugs to all,
