Thank-you Son - page 6

Son, We made it! I know that there are going to be people that try to correct me on that statement, "We" didn't do it..., "I" did it. They are wrong. I'm just talking to you right now little... Read More

    I remember when I was 8 and my mom began the nursing program. Sitting in the back of classes and back rooms at different facilities playing quietly while mom was in class or at work. Waking up with mom gone. Going to bed with mom gone. It was hard, but she always took the time (with a book or flashcards in her hand) to make sure I knew she loved me.

    I have 3 little guys that will begin this journey with me. Crazy how I feel guilty before even starting, but so hopeful and excited for OUR future at the same time... I only hope they will accept my "thank yous" and "appologies."

    Congratulations, mom & son!!!

    I'm crying after reading this. This is so beautiful and it makes me think of my own children as I'm in the final year of nursing school and wondering how we're going to make it through. The end of this crazy journey is near... only a matter of months down the road, but I often think of how it affects my kids and reading this just says everything I want to tell them. Thank-you.

    This is so sweet and reminds of of myself. My son is now 23 and in Iraq until January--currently he is here for 2 week leave--yea!! My daughter is 19 and taking classes in early childhood development. I am so glad you and your little guy made it. I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Thank you for sharing ur heart with us. It's really touching,inspiring, and it opens the eyes,minds,and hearts of parents traveling the same road. Its lets us know that while we improve ourselves to give more of ourselves to others,that we are not alone in our journey,and that what we see the least,is what shows up in the end,and counts ethe most. GOD bless you in your new journey.

    I am glad you gave thanks to your son. Children are often left out when parents are going to school or change jobs. I know he must be very proud of his hero. But most of all God deserve the most high thanks and praise.

    ...and Thank You. I, too, have a son, age 4. And I, too, have just finished my nursing course. My son was born just as I began my career as a student and, like yours, our journey has been a long one. Thank you for saying everything I have in my heart. I thank my son as well.

    When I first read this article when it was featured on the homepage a few weeks ago, I fell in love with it. I can totally relate to so much of it, it really made a lasting impression. So, when I was assigned to give an oral reading for one of my classes, I chose this article. My instructor and fellow classmates loved it. A lady that was sitting next to me had tears in her eyes. My instructor said it was a great piece to read for our class and I ended up with an A! Thank you so much for touching so many hearts over here at Baker College of Flint, Michigan.
