There are so many people in the world who never get the opportunity to graduate from college. For those of us who are able to attend and graduate, it is such an incredible gift, whether we were given it for free (through scholarships, parents, etc.) or whether we earned it by working multiple jobs or scrimping or scholarships, it is such a gift. There are many smart people out there who would love to be able to go but for various reasons are never able… I thought of that today as I watched my wife Mary get her degree at age 43, something she couldn’t do when we were young because the money just wasn’t there for her family and then we had our own family to raise. I love that because she is getting her degree so late in her life that she is appreciating it that much more!
