Ho hum.

I need a little sunshine today!
My BFF Michely graduates today with her nursing degree! I'm so proud of her, she has worked her butt off these last 4 years raising her 2 kids, maintaining a marriage all the while going to school full time. Quite the load I think.
So here I sit wishing like I have never wished before that I could be there. Be there for that moment she is "pinned" be there for the moment she gives her valedictorian speech, just be there ya know? But sadly that was not the plan. I tried, oh I tried. But it seems that life had another plan. Bruce is in the middle of switching companies and well there was just no way I could go back home right now for it. Sigh, sniff sniff.
This is one of the very few times I have felt so far away from everyone with this move we did 2 years ago. This is the 1st time I have missed something so important to me. But I guess that is what you face when you make the decision to move away right. I know it seems trivial compared to other things in life, but hey what can I say.

I can totally relate to not being close to home, especially when you need to be the most!! HUGS! Sometimes a random card or letter makes a world of difference!

many Congrats to your friend! A great achievement indeed!

I am so sorry you didn't get to be there too. Sending you a hug. But I'm sure your Bf could feel you with her in spirit!
