I am happy to say after two years of being back in school, studying and writing more than I have in years, I am just about Finito. Finished. Done.
It is absolutely amazing to complete my biggest goal of finishing college and at 43 years old to finally say, "I Did It!" I am ready to be done. Ready to not have writing deadlines. Ready to re-focus on a few areas that are lacking in my life right about now. Ready to move on to the next goal. Ready to read books for pleasure. Oh my, that will be a sweet day for sure. It has been a good ride. I know this is one season of my life I will always remember. It's had its challenges as well as its rewards. I never would have thought, ev-er, that 4 of us in my family would be in college at the same time. Four! Do you know how many textbooks that is per semester? I love learning and I don't take for granted the education I have received. I love learning along side my kids. That is the beauty of education, you never stop learning. I could shout that out real loud today.
My family has been so supportive and even handed me a Kleenex as I finished College Algebra. That was a very big day for me.
I can only say YIPPEEE!!!
Graduation is December 18th, 2010. I will wear a cap and gown. I will take my tassel and move it over when they say and I will cheer a BIG cheer. And I am sure as my name is Mrs. Jones, I will cry. My kids will all be there. My parents will be there and my biggest fan, my husband, will be there.
Here's to December 2010!
