Don’t miss out on the great moments of your life
This is graduation month and a time for a celebration with the whole family!
A newly met acquaintance shared this story. Her niece graduated from Medical School last week. As traditionally done, she could have nominated a family member (who is also a doctor) to perform the hooding ceremony instead of the Dean of the school. Since she had been inspired by her grandfather, now a retired physician, to become a medical doctor it would have been such a joy for him to perform the hooding.
Unfortunately he was uncomfortable to fly on his own from Las Vegas, especially with a frail wife in accompaniment. Everyone else in the family were busy at work and no one could take time off to accompany the grandparents on the flight. Fly from home to grandparents, then fly them to the university graduation. Afterwards accompany grandparents home, then fly back home and back to work.
The grandparents’ absence cast a little shadow over the beautiful day and the ceremony.
