There is no reward more fulfilling to a parent than to see their children finish school. It is the ultimate dividend for the countless overtimes, the grumbling stomach (sa sobrang pagtitipid di na kumakain), and the periodic debt that comes with the territory. It is the ultimate happiness and then some.
Our children may not be the consistent honor student but I I'll settle for the chance to just see them walking that stage and getting that precious piece of paper. That would make all the sacrifices worth the taking and the investment worth the risk.
Praying that my children will reward me that much.
