High School Graduation

I went to the graduation of a friends daughter. Mom was so happy and proud of her daughter who was a shining. We all meet at a club to celebrate afterwards. I noticed mom was sad and weepy. I thought she should be happy. What do I know since I have no kids. I found out real quick what was up she will be facing the empty nest with daughter moving going to college hundred of miles away. I can see the pain and worry my friend has as we sat and talked.I feel her pain we talked for hours sweet memories this mom shared of her time with her baby. Gave me more insight about how a mother feels when her babies leave the nest. She did a fine job of raising her daughter being a divorced mom.

Sweet. What is your youngest major?

Wonderful. We know about the cost since our oldest daughter has been and got her bachelors degree she is working on her masters for teaching math and science. It is a big expense but worth in.

My friends daughter got a four year scholarship. They are happy with the cost of higher education they needed it or she would not have gone to college.
