We never know what we can accomplish in life. Too often prayers and new opportunities are waiting for us and we don’t notice them. I tripped over top of these opportunities and committed myself to them. It took over 4 years in the program, but I did it! I graduated from Loyola University, LIM, on Saturday, May 12th!! I am so proud because I made a plan, saw it through, and I am using the fruits of it to live my faith in my everyday life. Thank you for your constant support, prayers, and words of encouragement. I wrote over 300 pages of formal papers, took days away from my children and spouse and opened my mind and spirit to new ideas. I learned so much and am better for the experience.
My family and I made an 11- hour road trip to New Orleans on Friday. I graduated Saturday morning. We left again on Sunday morning to take the 11 -hour return trip on Mother’s Day. It was worth every moment in that van to walk across that stage and be handed my diploma.
