My mom was telling me the story of how she and my dad were going to get separated when I was young. She said, “You guys were going to go with me to Mexico, and your dad said, ‘What are you doing? What kind of a future do our kids have over there? We struggle to pay for these private schools for them to graduate college.’ We got back together because of that, and then you didn’t graduate college!”
Then my son told me the next day, “Mom, you make so much money, you don’t even need a bachelor’s degree.” But the last recession, I got let go from my job. We lost our house because I didn’t have the titles. I had to start from the bottom and move up because I didn’t have those degrees. So, I just logged on and said, “I don’t care what it costs. I’m going to do it.”
When I walked the stage at graduation, my children were so proud.
