My goddaughter began her first day of college the same day I began teaching my two new college classes at Cal State Univ Channel Islands (Social Psychology and Psychology of Families). Prior to and upon her graduation from high school, I had asked her what she wanted and/or needed for college. “I’ll let you know godmommy.” That was end of May. June passes and so does July. I ask again, “what do you need or want for college?” “I’ll let you know godmommy.” Well, now it’s August and she’s all moved in, calls me and states, “I need a computer godmommy.” Hmmm. You mean to say you didn’t know way back in May or June or even July about needing a computer. What I suspect is that, her immediate family members purchased the smaller scale items knowing that her godmother would supply the big ticket item.
When it comes to money, people are funny; downright hilarious. I suspect that the same people who purchased the smaller scale items don’t even blink when it comes to purchasing the big ticket items for themselves. However, I have to laugh and give thanks to our Almighty God for providing my family with the provisions to invest in my goddaughter’s future. I’m proud of her and her major is pre-med.
