Graduation Day

My son graduated this past weekend with a BA in business and marketing. I was so proud of him! The guest speaker gave a wonderful commencement speech. His parents were share croppers and he grew up in a house with no running water or electric. He said his parents made sure he got an education. They told him, "you can't soar with the eagles, if you hang out with the turkeys." I like that! The speaker now lives in San Diego and is in real estate. I think it's safe to say he's done well for himself!


  1. Hello Nicole! So nice to 'see' you. Congratulations to your son..what a wonderful achievement. I totally agree with what the guest speaker said about hanging out with turkeys! So TRUE! I hope you're enjoying this nice weather we're having...this is so much better than LAST year. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Congratulations to your son...and to the parents who likely paid for it :) Fun times!
