The past 3 years of my life have been the most difficult of my life. But this chapter of student-hood has finally come to an end. I now have my Masters in Mental Health Counseling! I have earned letters after my name, MACP. Three years ago, I had just gotten divorced after finding out the unimaginable about my then husband. I had to start my life over as a single mom in a complicated world. The first thing I did for me was start grad school. It was very trying going from a stay-at-home mom to a single mom trying to take classes, mostly at night, and do homework, yet still be there for my daughter. In the beginning, I saw no end to my time as a student. But low and behold, after 3 years, I am a graduate! In fact, I graduated Cum de laude (High Honors) with a 3.88 GPA as of Dec 2012. Not too bad for a single mom!
I feel this huge burden lifted from my shoulders. I am finally able to start a new chapter in my life, my career. I look forward to spending the summer having Mommy Camp with Hannah one last time, as I had to work the summer prior. I plan to enjoy some much needed rest and time off. We are making travel plans for a month long road trip. This is going to be a fabulous summer!!!! Life is good!
