Against All Odds - LICS HS Graduation 2012

March 24 was my moms birthday and according to her, never in her sixty-four years of existence did it rain and we were hoping that it would not.

The sky was clear early that morning though the sun only peeped once in a while. Then lunch time came and dark clouds were forming that made that afternoon so gloomy.

What a bad day really it was.

Unfortunately, the first batch was postponed for March 30.  Luckily,  the second batch successfully finished the confirmation so I called up the office and asked if the third batch would push through. School's admin announced the day's affair would take place as scheduled, RAIN or SHINE.

The heavy rains poured as we left the house and we practically got wet. My daughter's toga was almost soggy and her face fully made up by her cousin Dave who is only 10 years old, was damp and nearly wiped out.

The STAGE looked like this:
SUPER SIMPLE... WET and UNATTRACTIVE


The commencement exercise should have started at 5 pm but due to the bad weather, it begun around 6.  Few droplets of rain fell during processional and turnover ceremonies. The graduation march that should have been slow became a rapidly moving parade.

My daughter Lizette along with her batch mates were teary-eyed as they bid final goodbyes to each other but happy at the same time because they have accomplished something. They were confirmed as graduates and now ready to face another chapter in their lives. Moving to the next level... COLLEGE. Their journey continues...


These will be their 
HIGH SCHOOL
memories:








In return, she gave us this token... from her HEART to ours. On the purple paper was written an earnest message from our ever dearest firstborn... pouring out her overwhelming appreciation to us and we are so proud of her being the good daughter that she is. Despite her shortcomings, she learned to acknowledge right from wrong.





CONGRATULATIONS to you Lizette
