Yesterday was Jennifer's (my sister) graduation for her master's degree. I was very fun to go down to the college where I went for undergrad. I also met my husband there and my youngest sister goes there now. You could say that we are a Southeast Missouri State University family. It is kinda neat that we have all gone there. I am very proud of my sister. She has worked very hard to be a Speech Language Pathologist.
The title of this blog is "We Are the Lucky Ones". Yesterday was a great example of how we are the lucky ones. I am so thankful that we have a family that is focused on education. However there was an instance yesterday where I thought about Mitch having kids and how it would be neat for them to go there. This did bring on some sadness. TO add salt to the wound I saw a friend who's younger sister just had a baby. I am sure that this has been a happy occasion for the family I really to feel sadness for them and consider myself the lucky one. This girl that had the baby is a freshman in college and has had to drop out of school to care for her child. I am so lucky that I did not have to go through that. I know that when we do have children the timing will be right and we will be prepared mentally and financially to care for our children.
