Blog Earnings Sent Him to School

Family will always be family. So when I heard that my nephew wanted to go back to school to finish his Secondary Education, I responded to his wishes. My husband and I talked about it and he supported my decision to help send my nephew to back to school.

So just yesterday, my nephew graduated from High School and my blog earnings helped him achieve it. No, he didn’t get any honorable mentions but he got what he wanted – his high school diploma! He has lots of dreams in life and that is what triggered me to help him.

I was not able to attend his graduation ceremony. Though I paid for his tuition fees and weekly allowances, I still believe that his parents, my brother and his wife, should take all the credit. They made him a strong lad with big dreams and I was just there to help them. But after his graduation ceremony, I treated them to an eat-all-you-can lunch together with my husband and my kids. Then, I give him a small amount of money as a graduation gift.

Though he is not my child, I felt good that my blog earnings were able to send him to school. I also felt that his achievement was my achievement too. Anyway, if God-willing and more blessings will come my way, I still want to help him out in college but not as fully committed as before. My eldest is also graduating this Monday from Elementary and will be in High School next year. Since we are transferring her to a private school, I might not have enough funds to fully support a college student. But, just like what I said, I will still help in my own way.

I really thank God I found blogging! Aside from earning in the comforts of my home, I get to spend time with my family and be able to help others as well.

To my nephew, congratulations!! May you achieve all your desires in life. Aim High!

You are a good person marz, that is why blessings come back to you always. I’m sure you noticed, help comes to you when you need it most… that is because you give out help – no matter how small – to those who always need it most. God bless you always! And congrats to your nephew.

Hi,Nice post.You can use css with tables too if you want only difference is positioning divs are much more customizable then cells of a table and I guess people say loading time which with fast internet connections today doesn’t pose the problems it once did.
