The Adventures Of Our Little Family Of Three

Sunday, December 19, 2010


It's hard for me to believe it, but I finally made it to graduation and now possess my MBA. I graduated just last night from Oklahoma City University, and had my dad and Jon there to cheer me on. I got a bit teary-eyed during the ceremony, feeling such an enormous amount of accomplishment and strength. I feel like I've been in school forever, and to be honest, there have been times when I wasn't sure if I'd make it through the program. However, through hard-work and determination, I managed to finish my degree with a 3.5 GPA. It was difficult juggling a full-time job, pregnancy and then motherhood, all while studying for my masters degree. Jon told me last night how proud he was of me, and that he and Riley admired me for sticking with it and not quitting. He went on to say that he didn't know any mothers that could do what I had done, and succeed in finishing their degree. I must say, that made me feel like the best mother/fiance in the world. Although I'm feeling sort of saddened that I'll never be in school again, I'm relieved to have finally received what I've worked so hard for the past two years, and my whole life. I am so lucky to have Jon and Riley, who encouraged me the whole way...I couldn't be where I am today without them. Also, I want to give special thanks to my mom and dad, who have always taught me to strive for success, and have given me great advice along the way. I've never felt so happy with my educational background than I do now. I know that now, I have the tools to be as successful as I want to be, and the sky is the limit. I really feel like I can do anything I set my mind to. Hopefully I'll have as much success in passing the CPA exam, as I've had in obtaining my masters degree.
