Mother's Day Weekend Events

This weekend has been the most rewarding weekend as a mother! A very exhausting one - but one that I will cherish forever. This picture is a picture of my son Corey who is 19 years old and his girlfriend Kelsey who is graduating HS this month. Don't they look stunning! The weekend for them was full of festivities. Friday night was the dinner and dance until midnight. My son said he was "a dancin' man"! He danced all night long. They then boarded a bus that took them Downtown Chicago to the Lakefront where they boarded a huge yacht and continued with dancing and eating until 4:00 a.m. The bus brought them all back home safely. They all spent the night at friends where they left the next morning and headed back Downtown to a friends familys condo. They all spend the rest of the weekend in the City and had a great time! Everyone is now home - safe.

Today, we were back in the city for Courtney's graduation from University of Illinois/Chicago. I am so very proud of her! She graduated Cum Laude, is a Honor College Graduate and a Liberal Arts and Science Graduate from the College of Chemistry. This is one young lady that had a vision of her future at a very early age (2nd grade) and has followed her dream thru. In the Fall she will continue her education and attend UIC for her Masters Degree in Forensics. The picture is of me on the left, Courtney and my DF.

As you can see, this Mother's Day weekend has been wonderful! My dream as a little girl was to one day grow up to be a mom. My dream has come true and although there were times that were unbelievably tough.......I never have regretted one moment on this earth as the mother of Courtney and Corey. Somehow all the good out weighs the bad. My advice to my young friends who are having their first babies has been - "look at everything as being a phase - it will pass".
There is no greater love than the love a mother has for her children! Happy Mother's Day to all Mother's! Cathy :)
