The Graduation Day ♥

Hello Everyone!

I decided to start a new blog as to start a new journey in my life. My first post is just perfect since It's The Graduation Day! ♥ 

Oh! The Places You'll Go! 

"If you can imagine it, you can achieve it

If you can dream it, you become it."

I never thought at almost at the age of 30, I would be asking myself what I want to be when I grow up?

Getting married and having three kids at a young age was certainly not the most conventional path that led me to this point. Truthfully, I guess I never really did much "by the book." This journey I'm on is not only to give myself the education I always wanted this is also a determination to set an example for my children. I want them to see the importance of education and the results that pay off when you put your mind to something. 

My hopes are that by sharing my journey thus far I will inspire other mothers who have tossed around the thought of returning to school. While I won't sugar coat it and say it is easy, I will share my journey as is and lend some pointers to lessen the load. Interesting to think that I never pictured that my kids may one day attend my graduation before I attend theirs. Never did I see myself doing my own homework along side my kids. I remember my journey back to the classroom- The tears, sweat and sleepless nights that I successfully overcome. I had this dream-like moment when I realize all my hard work is finally paying off when I walked on the stage and received my diploma. 

I thank God, my family and inspiration that lead me to my journey of success to my dream of becoming a nurse and at the same time being blessed with three wonderful children and wife to a very supportive husband. 


We had our Commencement Exercise at SMX Convention Center ♥ 

Oh! Yes finally, Our Big Day! 
(with my best friends/adopted school daughters: Cheryl, Stephanie and Mary Ann) 
How do you say good-bye?
To friends who mean so much?
Will there be time
To sincerely keep in touch?
You'll always have the memories
Of your school years from day one.
Don't think of school as ending--
Think a new life has begun . . .

You made my dreams come true ♥ 
Thank you so much Papa Euryd! 
As we reach our hand
the diplomas we grasp,
While we think of the memories
Of the years in the past.

You have brains in your head. 
You have feet in your shoes. 
You can steer yourself 
Any direction you choose.
