A little history so that you understand the present.....

I graduated from highschool in '95 and ended up pregnant with my oldest daughter that same summer. She was born in May of '96 (soon to be 11), and I wouldn't trade her for anything in the world. I married my highschool sweetheart in May of '98 (after having been together for 6 years), and my youngest daughter was born in December of the same year (what an amazing Christmas present).

The marriage didn't last, and we called it quits in early 2002. After 10 years together, we were totally different people, and the love just wasn't the same. I do not regret this chapter of my life because without it I wouldn't have been blessed with my two beautiful angels. He and I are better off, and our daughters have two happy and loving homes.

After the divorce, I met and fell in love with a wonderful man. This man has inspired me, believed in me, and given me strength beyond my wildest dreams. Because of his love I am able to believe in myself for the first time in a long time. This new self confidence has led me in directions that I never imagined possible in the past.

In August of 2003 I returned to school 8 years after graduating from highschool. I was nervous at first, but my love for learning soon took over, and it all came back to me naturally. I graduated with my Associate of Science degree in May of 2005 and soon transferred that degree to a 4 year college where I've been working on a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology. It's been difficult at times, but it's been a very enriching journey.

This brings me to the present. This Saturday, May 5th, I will be graduating with honors (Summa Cum Laude) from East Tennessee State University. I will walk across that stage, shake the hand of the university President, and accept my Bachelors degree, opening up a new chapter in my life. My immediate future is unknown, but I do know that I am ready for whatever may come my way.

Milestones are important aspects to reaching goals. I am ecstatic with where I am in my life, but I will never forget where I have been or what it took for me to get here. My journey has not always been an easy one, but my future looks promising. I wish the same for each and every single one of you.
