    That is definitely something to brag about!
    Congratulations, you must be beaming! Things like that are great accomplishments in life, and should be shared. Parenting is not an easy task, and you have done a fantastic job with your daughters.

    Thanks Sandy!
    I appreciate your kindness. These girls were both great from day one. Very different, which makes things interesting.

    Awwwwright Daughters of Anne!! :)
    Not only do you have every right to brag, you can brag and brag and brag any time you hit a rough patch! Oh gee, the doctors mixed up the paperwork... but hey, you have two extremely brilliant daughters! Oh gee, you feel really yucky on the treatments... but hey, you have two brilliant daughters who are wanted at any University they have their eye on. No matter what is going on in your life, good, bad or indifferent... you KNOW you have two huge success stories on your hands :)

    And the universe has put this hurdle in front of you called health... but you will overcome this too and go on to have to (sorry about this) go SHOPPING for new outfits that accommodate the mother of two brilliant scholars. So many ceremonies and award ceremonies to attend. You better rest up, girl!! :D


    Powerful words, Cheryl
    You hit my feelings straight on. I appreciate your confidence that I will make it over the health hurdle. Wouldn't it be nice if all I had to worry about was what dress to wear to these events. I really lucked out with my husband + two daughters!

    Congratulations!!!! I am waiting to see how that feels. My son has applied but they won't respond until April, it seems like forever to see if he's getting into his 4 year college that he wants.
    So it's got to be a BEAUTIFUL feeling in your heart about now!!! How fantastic that your oldest got accepted into the PhD program.
    You've done good girl!!!! Raising smart intelligent daughters!!

    I hope your son gets in. Waiting is hard. I really appreciate all your wonderful comments. Can't ask for much more than what I have with regards to my kids.

    Congratulations to you and the girls...........
    You have reached a milestone in your journey....You have gotten the girls raised and looks like they will be fine when they get on their own...That is the relief all parents want for their children. Its great when we get to see it and know that it is genuine...Good for you and great for them. I know you are proud of them, how could they have ever failed when they are a direct reflection of their mom..... Love to you, buzzour....

    AWW thanks Buzzour
    I really appreciate your words; they are so kind + thoughtful. We have gotten them to adulthood; now I want to enjoy them as adults. They make me proud everyday.
