A Special Mother's Day
On Mother's Day my brother and his family were celebrating at the graduation of Andrea (the youngest) at the University of North Carolina in Willmington. Andrea graduated with high honours in psychology and will attend The College of William and Mary next Fall to study for advanced degrees. She aspires to teach at the University level. We are all proud of my brother's girls and their accomplishments as human beings and students. Laura is a lawyer and Heather is studying to be a psychotherapist.
I think of my mother on these occasions. She would have been so pleased and enthusiastic about such a family celebration. For her, education was very important in fulfilling a person and shaping a knowledgeable and useful citizen.
