- Wedding: November 2011
I cried yesterday morning because I was so stressed about money. And that I have none. My mom has been saving for the wedding using the money she used to use to pay my rent each month (I started paying my own rent last year; I’m still in college).
But I haven’t been able to work much because I spend a lot of time at my unpaid, but much-loved, internship (also a graduation requirement, so the internship isn’t JUST for fun).
I accidentally applied late for scholarships this year (which I have NEVER done before and NEVER will again), and I lost most of them because of it! So my tuition was way more than I could afford, and I was planning to take out a loan (which I really didn’t want to do).
I couldn’t tell my mom because she’s already paying my rent AND saving for the wedding, and I don’t want to stress her.
Later that day, my mom called to tell me that my Grandparents wrote me a check for enough money to cover my tuition this semester, and then some! Just out of the blue! We didn’t even ask!
What are the odds?
😀 Yay for Grandparents’ generosity! (And generous Mommies, too!)
