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.
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.
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.
Many a champagne cork popped in celebration that night!
