Just heard the news and I'm really happy for her.
She has always worked from her early youth and never really had an opportunity to see this dream come true.
Now, with both kids raised and out of the house it seems the perfect timing for adventuring into a new career regardless of the age since time or money are no longer an issue.
Also useful on my side to have lawyer-mom ready to defend her offspring with a law suit when civil rights are not respected properly and legal actions are required. (like this example)
I'm really proud for her since she's a very intelligent person and not moving forward with her studies was almost like an handicap on her life that can finally be healed.
Good news indeed, carry on.. :)
