A Long Time in Coming

It was rough;

Rough like sandstone against dry elephant hide being dragged

It was tough

tough like shoe-leather well-done.

It was hard;

hard like diamonds,

but just as valuable.

And so the results of mining

the combined knowledge of human kind

specified to the needs of one for nurturing

and guiding

as resulted in this wonderful find:


my diploma




After all these years, today's mail carried with it a wonderful document. My diploma came in the mail today. It was unexpected and happily received. I almost don't know what to say. I actually had rolled it around in my head last night, being that I didn't completely believe that I had actually finished. Today, I received the concrete representation of my labor.

I know that this is like life. Sometimes, it's hard to be humble when enduring unfair treatment. It's not always the most enjoyable activity to sacrifice pleasure for something else. But when it's all over, we will receive the reward of our labor. I'm so glad I didn't give up.

I'm glad you didn't give up either, and I'm so proud of you that I'm tickled pink!! Congratulations my sweet baby. I was 17 when you were born, and you have always been the apple of my eye. You continue to amaze me, in that you become even sweeter as the years go by. Much success in your new teaching position Miss Bell. My baby niece, Tene.....Love, Augee
