My pride and joy has graduated

Tell you all about something I or someone has done that has made me proud.

Well… my son has completed high school with high honors, finished strong with stellar grades and a phenomenal GPA and walked across the stage in grand fashion over a week ago. He did not run like a madman to the back of the field at the end to collect his diploma, but sauntered to take in the last remnants of high school with his friends. He’s held his head high through the years when kids were mean, treated him bad, egged our home, peanut buttered his car, and toilet papered our trees. And again over the weekend when his aunt and grandmother only talked about their favorite grandchild on his special day (another child by the way), he just smiled and let it roll off his back. When they didn’t know what the mascot was for his future college or placed blame on our family for everything by the end of the night he just said, ‘it’s okay mom, they just have no clue what family really is all about.’ He is my pride and joy, my rock.

I could not be prouder of the accomplishments my son has made, will make, and is making. He has grown into a young man that only a handful of family who chooses to interact has watched mature.

Now off to his next adventure- UA.
