1: the quality or state of being proud: as a: inordinate self-esteem b: a reasonable or justifiable self-respect c: delight or elation arising from some act, possession, or relationship

I have been proud of many things thus far in my life. My family roots and heritage, graduating from college, both my boys, and I'm sure many more accomplishments and things. But I'm not sure I've ever been so proud of someone else for doing something that I had so little do with. Until recently.

Last night, my best friend, Tiffany, had her official graduation from Wayne State University Law School. We've been best friends for four years now and I've watched her go through the journey and trials of the entire ordeal. I'm not sure that I could have done what she's done, especially giving birth and raising two children through the process of classes, studying and exams.

She's passed her bar, she had her commencement and will be sworn into the lawyer role officially next week. I'm so proud of the work she's put it, the drive and tenacity she's shown and the strength with which she's done it all.

Tiffany, baby, I'm proud of you. So very very very proud of you.
Thank you for allowing me to be part of your life and sharing your very special moments with me. I love you.

(Marissa, Tiffany & me)

Aww babe, there are no words. You know that I truly couldn't have done it without you. Between just listening and being a friend to watching my kidlets while I was in class- you helped me every step of the way.

You totally could do what I just did- I have no doubts.

Mad love
