It's Graduation Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe this day is finally here but it is and I can say is wow. This day means so much to me because I am doing something society says is hard to do. I was a high school drop out who went back for her GED in 2004 and now 3 years later to almost the day I recieved it I am getting my Associates degree in Business Administration. I have been told that I couldn't do it, that I was worthless, and so many other things by none other than my own father but today he can't and wont' take this moment away from me. I walk tonight and my son will be there to see his mom wear the "funny hat" and realize anything is possible if you just believe in it. The other day he asked if he could go to college someday and I said it would be an honor for me to see him go but it's not about what I want its about what he wants. I just wish my own father could have learned that lesson a long time ago. I will back later to post a picture of me in all my glory for today I celebrate its graduation day.

What Can Happen In A Year

What can happen in one year? Well a lot apperently after the year I have had. A year ago today my marriage or whatever you want to call it was ended for good and at that time I swore I would never make it but not only did I make it, I thrived and grew stronger. I look in the mirror and don't recognize the woman that stands before me. If the girl a year ago would appear I would tell her to have faith, it's going to be ok. I not only was able to manage to pay the bills but I now have a car that is in my name and so much more. I was able to give my son a great Christmas that he will remember forever not for the amount of presents but for the tree and decorations I was able to purchase and display that when he saw them his eyes would light up. I am 4 days away from obtaining my associates and moving to Houston. I also realized that my marriage wasn't meant to be and even though I lost a husband, I got a best friend out of the deal. I don't live with the constant fights anymore and now I can talk to him without grinding my teeth and wishing he would just disappear. Sometimes we don't know whats best for us until its presented to us. A year ago if you would have told me my marriage ending was the best thing for me I would have told you, you were nuts but now a year later it was the best thing for me. I remember a year ago feeling that my heart was being ripped out but thanks to great friends it is slowly being put together and I know a year from now I will be an even better person than I am today.
