I do not want to go to work today.
I’m a little blue. Yesterday my mom graduated with her Masters of Nurse Practitioner so now she’s 3/4 of a Doctor. I’m so happy for her, its been two years of hard schooling, a lot of which she struggled through, but she’s so smart and capable and just plain wonderful that I never doubted that she would be standing there for graduation.
I never stopped to think that maybe I wouldn’t be.
I never imagined that I would be stuck here while something so phenomenal was happening in my mom’s life. It hurts that I’ve missed it and yes they taped it and I’m sure I will watch it, but the truth is that watching it will only remind me that I wasn’t there.
Its so big, such a huge accomplishment, and its not something that I’ll have an opportunity to go to the “next” one.
I’ll stop feeling sorry for myself I guess. Anyways, it sucks.
I love you mom and congratulations again!
