Last Thursday, my boyfriend and I packed up the car and headed down to the last stop south on the Oregon coast. I took off a few heavenly days so I could watch my mom graduate. It was such a beautiful moment. My mom did not have it easy and yet she devoted so much of her time, energy and love to raising three children. After we left home she started going back to college and slowly made her way through school while working more than full time and graduating with honors. If there is ever a person I admire and look up to, it's my mom.
My mom has always been so supportive of my education that it was nice to be able to show some love for her and cheer as loudly as I could when they called her name.
