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.

    In the end it doesn’t matter when you receive it, you are putting in the work and I don’t even know you but I am proud of you.
