Something positive

We were just talking about how life is getting harder as days passed by. But in the middle of it all we were blessed with children who hold education in high regard. One of them is about to graduate from college in a few weeks. We are thankful that no matter how difficult the financial situation is we were able to support our daughter’s college education. We are more thankful that she managed to maintain her (partial) scholarship all through her stay in the institution. We are only paying 50 percent of her total tuition.

I told my husband this development in our lives is the best Father’s Day gift he could ever have more than the worth of a musical device that he likes (from this site http://www.guitarcenter.com/Line-6/Spider-IV-15-15W-1×8-Guitar-Combo-Amp-Black-1274034483007.gc. My husband is teary eyed but I assured him we will be okay.
