March 31, the Day We Graduate from Education Course

March 31 is the momentous day for us, my wife and I. This is a double celebration for we both graduated from our elementary education course in a separate year but the same date.

My wife and I were studying in humble government sponsored college in the small city of La Carlota and we completed our elementary education course in the same date, March 31 but in different year.

I was ahead of my wife for 6 years. I finished that course by myself unlike my previous commerce course which I never spent a penny for I enjoyed my academic scholarship as editor in chief of the college public, The College Voice. I was right away hired by the local Rural Bank where I had my on the job training as an apprentice. Anyway I pursued my elementary education course by my own money. I went to the college during my off office hours and Saturday. It was in the year 1985 that I completed the academic requirements to the degree of Bachelor in Elementary Education (BEED) with flying colors.

Happiness Beyond Measure

I take much pride and happiness for my wife's degree earned for I defrayed her entire college studies fees until she completed it. She took also the elementary education in the same college where I studied. It was on March 31, 1991 that she climbed up the stage to receive her diploma from our former City Mayor Juancho Aguirre.

I was sitting in the seat assigned for the parents, guardians, spouses of the graduates. I couldn't express my happiness when I saw my wife marching, going up the stage, receiving her diploma. It's beyond measure so to speak for a person who spent much for the education of his spouse just like me. I couldn't wait for her to go down from the stage to congratulate here. I saw from her face on how happy she was while receiving from the Mayor of her diploma.

"Congratulations, Bing!" I greeted my wife as I accosted her going down the stage. I hugged her with my tears of joy gently falling from my cheeks. "Thank you, Bor," she replied unconditionally.

It's again a synchronous date, March 31 and we have also a synchronous birth date, October 13, 1951. Indeed, are we meant for each other?

All these things we offer to our late parents and to our 6 children. And most of all, we're all very grateful for God's guidance and inspiration that in Him nothing is impossible. We know He's always there in good times and in bad times.
