YAY!!!

I hadn't been to my snailmailbox in a few days. I went last night. My daughter's graduation invitation was in there. Seeing her name with what her degree will be in followed by the words
CUM LAUDE!!!!!
made me cry. I am so proud of her!! Mac

I understand. Those feelings and emotions that emerge when we think of our children.
Mom had a part in this I think.

That is a wonderful accomplishment and you should be very proud. Be sure you tell her that as much and as strongly as you can. Also, she should realize that it is the applied education that is the ultimate reward for her effort.

Only cum laude? What kind of perfectionist is that?

Seriously, that's a great accomplishment for her, and you, and she, have every right to be proud. Trade hugs for me when you see her again.
