So I have finally come to the end of a grueling 4 year BSN program, and likely won't be valedictorian, nor will have an opportunity to stand up and make a toast, so I figure that this a place where I can take the podium and speak. You are reading page 2 of Thank-you Son. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

My mom was a single mom who worked and went to school while raising me. Thank you for giving me a glimpse into what her world must have been like. Your story brought tears to my eyes.

I agree - you ought to save this one for him.

Been down that road.....as I read your story, My heart felt so heavy for you..I had forgotten how hard it was. I had 2 girls, 6 and 8, when I graduated. There is nothing like the faces of a child to motivate a mother. My white cap goes off to you.....as you make the transition into your accomplished career, please take this advice.......work to live, don't live to work....exhale.... fellow nurse, you did it.... welcome aboard:yeah:

Thank you. I hope to be there myself in the coming years. You have made it to the point where I hope to be. Not just for me, but especially for my son (he's 12 now). Thank you again, and CONGRATULATIONS!!!:yeah:

LaughingStudent,

Your article is just what I needed today. Right now I am in the same situation you were in when you started your BSN.....

Your article made me cry, not because it was sad, but because it speaks volumes about all the single moms out there trying to teach their little boys the right path to follow.

You are a valedictorian in my eyes, thank you for your touching words. :cry:

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the post. I too can relate to all the things you went through for your education. Many times, the only thing that kept me going was my son and the fact I wanted a better life for both of us. Congrats on everything, and enjoy house shopping. I just bought my very first home, and I can't wait to move in.

I am a dude and I read that crying. You summed up how I feel about the sacrifices my little boy is making. Congratulations on your graduation and congratulations on being a world class mother.

What a beautiful and moving thank you to your son! Congratulations on finishing your journey! I am only in my second week of Nursing School and I can already see how valuable my family is going to be and are to me. Without the support of our loved ones this "journey" we have embarked on would be even longer and much harder.

You must be very proud of your son and rightly so! You will both benefit with what you have accomplished and I wish you both the very best!:redpinkhe

I am writing this with tears steadily steaming down my face. You are an inspiration to many. I truly hope that you know that you are a valedictorian, YOU both have overcome. God bless you and I wish you all much success, love and happiness in the future.
