College Graduation


I am done! Hooray for me! This has been a long journey, and I certainly have learned a lot about discipline, determination, and committment along the way. If I could have given a speech, I would have thanked my family and friends for supporting me and encouraging me to keep going. The credit all goes to God and His amazing strength when mine was completely gone. I most of all want to thank my wonderful husband, Andy, for believing in me and telling me to never lose sight of my dream. He would not let me quit when I wanted to so desperately. He knows what it is like to have a dream and hold on until it comes to pass. We can't be together right now, but we are both seeing our dreams come to pass at the same time. Getting to this point was certainly not easy- as is nothing that requires sacrifice, but "the victory is always greater than the struggle."
