Energizer Bunny's Mommy Reports: A graduation I will remember....

A graduation I will remember....


I remember the night as if it were yesterday. My then fiance (now Hubby) had just completed studying for his Masters Degree and the results had been announced....he had placed among the top 3 in his class. The news was exciting, exhilarating and relieving but at the same time there was a heavy sadness tinged in his emotions. Hubby's mother had been very ill (She went on to be with her Maker a few months later) and his father was by her side helping her through the difficult time, thus making it unable for both to attend his graduation.
My Aunt and Uncle knew what Hubby was going through, so asked if they could come in their place to cheer him as he received his postgraduate degree with honors. I know Hubby appreciated the gesture but it was still not the same.

The night of the big celebratory event was everything it had to be. The air was pungent with the buzz of euphoric graduates and there were camera flashes going off left, right and center. The graduating class was announced one after the other by name and everyone politely clapped for each proud candidate. It was Hubby's turn. His name was announced and as soon as he stepped onto the stage, that ballroom erupted into loud cheers and a deafening applause. A segment of undergraduates whom Hubby had taught the previous year even stood up to honor him with an ovation. What an incredible moment! I know I wept with pride into my beautiful burgundy wine sari (ofcourse, one will never have a tissue or handkerchief handy during such moments!) and my Aunty joined me with quiet sniffles.

Even though Hubby's parents couldn't be there for his big day, God ensured that it was a day like no other and yes, in just a few seconds, He orchestrated it to make it one filled with exceeding joy!
