Celebration #BlogFlash2012

Hi, today is Day 12 and the prompt is Celebration. I’m very lucky my daughter has given me much to celebrate over the years (has anyone sussed yet that she’s the best, most perfect thing in my life? Lol. Maybe it’s because I lost her twin during my pregnancy and I haven’t been able to carry a child since. I refer to her as my miracle baby). So as you might have guessed, I have to dedicate this post to her – it was the proudest moment in my life. I hope you enjoy it.

 

Celebration

A hushed expectancy filled the huge auditorium.

Graduates filed in, gowns flowing, mortar boards in place, and took their places at the front, just prior to the Department Heads walking onto the stage.

Graduates in the auditorium

The university chancellor made his grand entrance gave a boring speech before getting to the moment we all waited for – the presentation of the degrees.

Hearing my daughter’s name announced for Batchelor of Arts Honours Degree was the proudest moment of my life as the now poised, assured young woman walked across the stage to receive her certificate.

Receiving her degree

Many a champagne cork popped in celebration that night!

I lost count of how many corks we popped that day!!

      No need to apologise for not commenting more – I’m just very happy that you take the time to read my posts and enjoy them – so thank you very much!!

      I look forward to your next comment, whenever that may be 😀

    • Thank you for your lovely comments, MG. And yes, I would say she’s very awesome (of course I’m only the tiniest bit biased, lol). I’m glad you’re enjoying the #BlogFlash, I’m having fun doing them! Have a great day, my friend! xo

    • Hi Angela, You will find over the years there will be many thing to celebrate with your child/children, but I have to say, for me, this has been the crowning glory so far. Treasure each moment, each memory as they arise.

      I’m happy you enjopyed it and could relate to it in a way. 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing this:) You are obviously a very proud momma! If your daughter isn’t married yet, I can’t wait to read about that event!

    • Hi Laura,

      Yes, I’m an extremely proud momma – I’m lucky, she’s given me much to be proud about and she’s turned into an awesome young woman.
      No. she’s not married yet, and believe me when that time comes, I will be shouting it from the rooftops!!! Lol

  3. Being a mother is one of the proudest moments of my life, so I know the feeling you have.Success comes when we see our children grow into adults and become the people we knew they could from the moment we first felt them. Congratulations on your daughter’s graduation.

    • Hi Lisa, I feel the same. Having my miracle baby is the best event that’s ever happened to me and one of the proudest. I’m glad you know how I feel until that special moment arrives for you, it’s hard to express the pride you feel.

      Thank you for the congratulations, I’ll pass them along to her.

      Carlie 😀
