Its been a busy day!!

Our son graduated for the third time so we've been in Edinburgh today. It was a small ceremony in an old building that oozed history. The architecture was fabulous and the decorative plasterwork on the walls and ceilings something else!!

But the thing that really struck me - and everyone else we spoke to - was the speech to those who were receiving their diplomas. It was full of amazing wisdom. These graduates were surgeons and the person delivering the speech someone of eminence who had been in their shoes 42 years earlier.

What we heard was a man of humility and someone unafraid to say he'd made mistakes. He reminded those graduating that they had two ears and one mouth and that they should be used in those proportions.

Utterly inspiring...
