Congratulations to Darlin at: My Life for a Year.

     A blog that I follow is "My Life for a Year" by Darlin. Darlin does a short post most days on what goes on in her life. Today  the topic was walking the dog and whether you walked the dog or the dog walked you. She has excellent photos and can tell things in a positive very perky way. 

  Darlin does give out her age but I can't remember what she said. She's still on the best side of the big 5 0. This year she finished an arts degree at the University of Calgary. Most of it was done on line.  Darlin was excited to go to the convocation and celebrate with her adult children or maybe it was her adult children celebrating with her. Finishing a degree as an adult is a challenge. You've been out of school for a long time. Sometimes your school experience wasn't positive. 

     Darlin was so pumped about her success that she registered in a masters program.

     So this is my opportunity to tell you about a neat blog.

    Now several weeks after the convocation the Metis had their own ceremony for Metis graduates from the University of Calgary. So it's nice to see a special cultural group celebrate the success of their members.

    Darlin was overwhelmed when she was given an award for the student overcoming great difficulties. So congratulations to Darlin. After all that she still has a huge smile on her face.

      So go over to Darlin's blog and look at the colorful symbolic celebration. While you're there look around at other posts. I'm sure you'll find something you like.
