(NT) Thanks, Roger
Good Children are truly
a Blessing, Congratulations to him You have a reason to be proud:)
Thanks, and by all your posts about your Grandbabies, and
GGC, I'm looking forward to Luke provided us with maybe a half a dozen of them. (In the distant future, of course.)
Believe me, Luke is a very onry child, and he will be "paid back" severely!! Hee Hee
Pay backs are the best of all:)
And to watch my daughters with their Grandchildren is well worth all the years of raising them! hehehehe I think each generation just adds some of what went on before
The sins of the fathers and mothers?
Kudos to him! Kudos to his parents!
It is wonderful to hear about the accomplishments of the young'uns in all our lives. Be it a ''first'' for a very small one, or an award or recognition of an older one.
Believe me, I have shared a ton of ''brags'' here in SE! My oldest used to just act totally disgusted with the whole thing when I would tell him about my posting something here, then later he would sneak in a ''So, has anyone responded to your ridiculous post about me?'' LOL
The teenagers (especially boys) like to pretend they want no attention for their accomplishments, but they are just like the youngsters and the oldsters (me, for example ), it feels good to get the strokes.
I am proud of your boy, and proud of both you and your hubby. ''Polite'' ''Respectful'' ''Commitment'' ''Dedication'' ''Performance'' You are so correct about the importance of what he was recognized for (and the other students). I have known A LOT of ''book smart'' folks that had absolutely NO ''people skills'' at all. I don't care how much you know or how high you have scored on some kind of test, if you are a jerk ..... well, your life in the long run might just be pretty lonely.
Again, I say KUDOS to you all. Keep up the good work!
Thank you Marcia for such kind words.
We've always stressed to our son the importance of treating others with respect even during times when he'd rather treat them otherwise. We told him he would benefit in the end, and he's come to realize some of those benefits. Helping someone else achieve a passing grade or even to help them understand some concepts that just don't click, is sometimes more rewarding than receiving the A yourself. He's come to realize that!
I admire you Marcia for the mother you are! I've come to "know" you through reading your posts, and have shed many tears on you tragic loss of your Wonderful Son. I can't imagine the loss. But you have made me count my "Blessing" and appreciate my son so much more, and I thank you!
Thanks again, and God Bless!
P.S. I wished I had your "smilies".
Thanks for the sharing..... He's the kind
of guy we need more of here in SE, "polite and respectful; He treats others with respect....".
Just like me ..........
...... and you. Right, JR?
I think the whole world could use lots more like us!
I recall you
posting similar about your son, before and after the terrible accident, he being among other things, ''polite and respectful''.
Me, well, with some I have little respect for their treatment of others, but do not wish to discuss that in Shaner's nice thread.
(NT) You're welcome, and I know what you mean
(NT) WTG Luke :)
It's always great to hear such special news! You have every right to be proud of your progeny!
Raising children is just about the hardest, most challenging job there is! Luke has shown through his accomplishments that you and your husband did it well. In addition to his academic achievements, he is well liked by his peers, as well.
I wish Luke continuing success in the coming years. He has built the foundation for a very productive one!

Thank you, Angeline
for your kind words!
Luke wants to pursue Law Enforcement, and would like to move up the ladder to FBI. I think my headaches are just beginning, LOL.
He also loves playing his guitars, and writing lyrics, in his spare time, as well as trying to break the sound barrior with his amps!
Believe me, I thank God daily for giving me the greatest gift I could possibly ask for!
