Pride

It’s weird. I didn’t really think that one feels pride in your family. Especially when the family is just me and Esther. I’m always proud of her accomplishments, but not in a boastful way. Well today (yesterday in reality) that changed.

She got into the PhD program!

I couldn’t contain myself. I called my mom and told my co-workers… it’s like a child first learning to speak… or something very profound that I will only understand when I am a father.

I am proud of her. I am very very proud of her.
