I can see light at the end of the tunnel. I have finally come to a point in my life where I can close another chapter in my story. I have been going to school pursuing my undergraduate degree for 20 years. Life happens. As a result, I started and stopped pursuing my degree numerous times. Well, on December 16, 2017, I will walk across the stage to receive my degree. I thought that this day would never come. I am excited, nervous, anxious and elated all at the same time. I'm not going think about what's next for me. I will take the time to revel in this moment of my life. It's been a long time coming on my journey, but I am extremely thankful and grateful that I was blessed to have the health to complete this huge accomplishment. I am grateful to my husband for his unwavering encouragement and support. God knew who I needed in my life to support me. I refuse to allow Lupus to stop me from fulfilling my dreams. My graduation gives me hope for a brighter future. I whole-heartedly welcome the next chapter in my story!
