An emotional rollercoaster

What an emotional rollercoaster this last week has been. First, last Wednesday (19th), we had all the thrills and excitement of our Adam's graduation ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall - first class degree from Imperial. Fantastic setting and we had some of the best seats in the house - a box right over the stage no less. What a proud Mum I was too with the best of them I only wish I could have hit the replay button as it was all over so quickly too quickly. Then it was over to his Computing department for Champagne and canapes. Here Adam received the additional prize of best of the year BEng student, a certificate and a cheque.

Then yesterday morning (24th) we were up at 4.30am to drive Adam to Heathrow for his round-the-world trip. What an emotional time that was, worse than when we saw him off to Uni, especially as we knew Bangkok where he was headed in the midst of terrible floods. Hardly a confidence booster. However, on the Internet this morning we could see that his plane had landed, in fact at just after 6am (our time) the very time I had woken to pray for him. Awesome or what?

Next trauma was today lunchtime when we heard that Ruby, my husband's Mum has fallen with suspected hip break and possible operation. She lives in the North East too, so visiting and taking care of her is going to prove difficult... What next or do things only come in threes? Very much hope so.
