Rebecca’s Top Ten Graduate Celebration this week was filled with full pomp and circumstance. Brandeis High School had a pep rally for the top ten academic students that included their cheerleading squad and marching band. Balloon archways decorated the room where the families enjoyed a brunch and video presentation of their children.
We experienced this ceremony via Zoom from the hospital bed.
Every time I see the picture of the honorees plus Rebecca smiling through the iPad, I tear up.
I tear up thinking of Rebecca’s high school career – squeezing in the majority of her studies strapped to a hospital bed on narcotic drips, in between surgeries and scans. Her academic journey has been incalculably more arduous than the typical “Top 10” graduate.
And then I am overcome by overflowing gratefulness. Because, despite everything she has been through, Rebecca gets to experience this incredible victory. Even if it is from the untraditional view of a computer screen. Our unexpected miracle.
Thank you Lord.
Love to each of you,
