I must preface this post by saying I ususally try not to brag, but I just can't help myself this time. Besides, I know lately I have been sharing more of my stress and worry. Here is some great newa to share. We have 2 fantastic daughters, 17 + 22. The younger one applied to 3 universities for the fall + got accepted to all three! Now she has to choose, but she has until June 2. Our oldest daughter just found out she got accepted into the PhD program she wanted (one of 3 people). We are really happy for both of them; they are succeeding despite my health situation + I could not be prouder of either of them. I just wanted to share this good news with my friends here.

Your words (as always) mean a lot to me. Did your daughter go back to finish her degree?

I appreciate those kind words. Wait till they are teenagers, then they really bring you down to earth! Parents don't know much anymore, but you sure have interesting conversations at the dinner. My oldest daughter is in theatre + she has been involved in a production that revolved around the family dinner (she wrote it + directed it. She thanked my husband + I for having the daily family dinner in the program.

I can' remember if you are on Mainland China or Hong Kong. My oldest daughter did an exchange program at the University of Fudan for the fall semester of '09, when she was in undergraduate studies.

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.

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

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!!

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....

You should be very proud and I appreciate you sharing this, it lifts my spirits to hear of good things happening to good people of which you are one.
