NonGraduation Day

Today is the day that I was supposed to graduate with my Masters, surrounded by friends and family.

As a result of discovering I was pregnant two days before this semester began, I had to switch from being a full-time student to being a part-time student. I will now have to wait until next May (May of 2015) to graduate, because my school does not offer the three remaining classes I need until next spring semester. 

Instead of waking up with happy butterflies in my stomach this morning, I woke up with Little Man kicking my ribs and dancing around with all his might in there.

I checked my Facebook mobile app and saw pictures of my friends in their caps and gowns, and immediately realized what day it was.

I hate crying, but sometimes it helps to have a good cry (and a big hug from your mom). 

This too shall pass. 

Again, I repeat to myself 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 – “I am hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; I am perplexed, but not in despair; I am persecuted, but not forsaken; I am struck down, but NOT destroyed.”

My Jesus will never leave me. He will never forsake me.  Everything will be okay in the end.
