My family back home in the Philippines is celebrating our graduates and achievers today. Friday was the graduation day. My niece finished high school and will be entering college this coming June. My nephew graduated in elementary. Both of them were awarded Most Behave in their respective classes. My other nephew was the Best Achiever in his 1st grade class, too. This celebration also includes my baby sister’s graduation in college and being a licensed nurse. I mentioned before that she passed the National Licensure Examination for Nursing early this year.
So everybody’s at a resort right now. The kids had been looking forward to this day to come – to be able to go to the pool and swim. I am very thankful that we were able to grant their requests. And I am very happy to know how happy they are right now. I know the feeling of great happiness when something that you had been wishing for for quite sometime is granted.
It is summer vacation now in the Philippines. I wish the kids a wonderful summer vacation. I want them to enjoy their time with the family and enjoy their childhood like I did when I was their age.
Congratulations to all the graduates, honors, and achievers.
My youngest sister’s graduation in college.
Congratulations to my youngest sister. She graduated from college a couple of months ago. Graduating from college is the biggest accomplishment for my sister so far. It’s unbelievable how the years flew by so fast. Seemed like she just enrolled in first year college last year. Now she already have her diploma in Bachelor of Science in Nursing. We are very proud of my sister D.
Few weeks after her graduation day, the packages I shipped has been delivered at my parents’. Inside the packages were Christmas presents, clothing, kids’ shoes, body and bath essentials, personal care items, and graduation gifts (for my sister). My niece and nephews were anxiously waiting for them to arrive. I was glad that the packages were delivered without issues.
On the other hand, my sister sent me a text message letting me know that they already got the presents and stuff and she thanked me for the cute maxi dress we gave her. It’s one of the graduation gifts we sent her. To match the dress, she also received a pair of sandals.
My sister was very happy with her presents. My niece and nephews were too. They got to open their belated Christmas presents in June. 🙂
My cousin and I hosted lunch at her house celebrating the graduation of my sister from college and of our cousins from high school. We invited a few girl friends to have lunch with us yesterday. I really wanted to celebrate the graduation even if I wasn’t there to witness it myself. In a small and simple way my cousin and I shared the joy and the blessing that The Almighty has given us and our loved ones in this special occasion.
We are very proud of these kids. They’re very diligent and patient. Wishing them the very best in their future endeavors.
