Saturday, May 19th I graduated for the third time. I don't think I realized how exciting and monumental this day was until I was on my way to the ceremony. I am so glad I was able to don my cap and gown and wear a hood that signified my masters degree completion. "Southamericansara" flew all the way from Rio just to walk! We briefly chatted and reminisced for a few brief minutes. It was so good to see her again.
Roger was my sole fan at the ceremony itself, but my support has surrounded me this entire journey. God has been my strength through, over, and around all the obstacles, especially in this past year. I've never felt so carried as I look at where I've come. I have so much hope and peace about where God can take me because He's been faithful--as a good friend who was immersed in challenges said to me..."God is always good."

It was fabulous to see you Sat, even though it was brief. Congratulations again on your accomplishments. To finish the work you did this year with a newborn is not small task! Parabems!!
