Mothers. We know them as the women who gave birth to us (and hold it over our heads), the women who know us inside and out (especially when you don't want them to), and the women we love to hate...and love to love.

Mothers are very devoted to their children, always putting themselves and their own happiness on the back burner so they can make their children happy.

Sharonda Wilson is a mother who proved that this past weekend by missing her own graduation ceremony so that she could attend her son's. But skipping her own ceremony ended up paying off in a big way.


Wilson was graduating from Ferris State University on Saturday, and she was scheduled to attend the ceremony, but ended up going to Central Michigan University, where her son Stephen was graduating (and singing the national anthem at the ceremony to boot).

When Stephen's name was called during the ceremony, to Sharonda's immense surprise, hers was too!


The president of CMU, Dr. Bob Davis, said from the stage:

“I made a call today…to David Eisler, the president of Ferris State University, so please pay attention.”

Davies was able to give Sharonda her degree on behalf of Ferris State. Sharonda received a standing ovation, though we're sure that was nothing compared to the feeling of getting her degree alongside her son.

Stephen spoke to the Detroit Free Press, saying:

“When I heard (she) was getting her degree with me I was speechless."
“My mother is truly the strongest and most compassionate woman I know. That moment tops [any] other moment I have ever shared with my mother.”

We carry all sorts of things we might need with us on a regular basis: our cell phones, wallets, a couple of adhesive bandages, that loose change that always seems to be in the bottom of your pocket unless you actually need it. Some people though, have taken this to the extreme.
