Gratitude, not pride...

MAXMOM here...

Only 5 days to go!
MAXDOG is in the printing process as I write this post.
By Friday morning, we will have the books in print...
for the world to read!
'Shaky' doesn't begin to describe what I am feeling.
My life, at the moment, its quite unbelievable!

There are a number of bloggers who I mention in the book.
If you are interested in who these fur-friends are and my explanation about them, please click

 Not only this but, in the next two days, my eldest daughter writes her final two, major qualifying exams... after 18 years of hard study! 
If all goes well, by Wednesday evening she will be a highly accredited young woman ...

Congratulations Doctor Jenny!
You are going to be an amazing doctor!

Not only that, but by Friday afternoon, my other daughter will also have her first degree - a 'BSc' and be well on the road to her accomplishing her own dream of becoming a Vet one day!
3 years down, 4 years to go!

Congratulations Robyn!
You are going to be an amazing Vet one day!

I cannot begin to tell you how proud I am of these two amazing young women...

They have dedicated themselves to their dreams and their talents...
What more could parents ask for?
Jenny and Robyn, my precious two daughters:  I love you with all my heart!
What a privilege it has been to be your mother!
I am so proud of you!


About to unfold, the petals stretch,
shining bright in earthly sunshine.
Tender velvet; fragrance sweet;
delicate creations - an absolute treat!

My roses are partly me, it seems
uniquely formed; budding blossoms.
Preparing to weather life's big storms,
tentatively, untuitively reaching upwards.

In reverence to our Creator, they tilt their heads
proudly shining His light.
My roses - all petals and brand new stalks;
growing blindly despite the envy of others.

(Caryl Moll)


Thank you to all my blogging friends who have helped me reach for my own dream.
Sending lotsaluv

I fear that the Moll household is in danger of exploding with amazingness this week!
Congratulations to all the concerned (including, of course, 'The Boss'!)
Cheers, Gail.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

We are so happy for you and your daughters!
To achieve the dreams that you have all worked so hard for is more than an accomplishment.
Its mastering the challenges, the obstacles, struggles, and never giving up. To keep fighting. You may have at times felt like giving up, but you didn't.
The masterplan was not for any of you to give up!
There was a plan, and now it has been painted in the stars.
