So Thankful

A message to my oldest son.  Congratulations on the scholarship you were just awarded!  We are very proud of you!  You are realizing your dream!  I know it’s hard to be away from the family, son.  We are just a telephone call away and if needed I will get right on a plane and be there quickly.  We love you!

A little bit of details…..

My oldest son is currently in his first semester of medical school in Houston.   He applied for a scholarship a month ago and he just found out that he was accepted!  He was accepted for a $12,000 scholarship!  Yes twelve thousand dollars!    I am proud to say that he has other scholarships as well.  It definitely does help.  Hopefully, by the time he is finished with med. school, there will not be a huge school loan to pay back. 

I wanted to share a picture of him when we moved him to Houston.  This is at the housing for med. students.  His apartment is nice and spacey.

I hope you all are having a wonderful Friday.  Thank you for visiting my blog.  I am truly touched. :)
