We did it!

Well, it came sooner than I thought it would.
It was hard work.
It was a lot of late nights and early mornings.
It was a lot of no sleep.
It was a lot of penny pinching.
It was a lot of miracles.
It was a lot of stress.
It was unbelievably crazy.
It was some tense moments.
It was "I need a break before I go insane."
It was "Man I miss my husband. I haven't seen him in about a week."
It was some weeks without anything in the fridge to eat.
It was date night=us eating whatever was laying around+what's on TV because we don't really have the energy to watch a movie.
It was me working a lot. A whole heck of a lot.
It was some skimpy Christmases.
It was a lot of prayer.
It was a lot guidance.
It was exactly what we needed to go through in order to learn what we have learned.
It was an experience I'm already excited to tell my kids about it.
It was the hardest thing I have ever done.
We are no longer college students.
Michael and I are quite the team. Between me working my buns off at work and him working his buns off at school we managed to be the busiest couple of all time. Plus, we managed to stay a couple.
I'm really proud of Michael and what he has accomplished. He has produced some really good work and he worked really hard to get it. I know this is only the beginning of a whole new stage in our lives but I'm excited to close one book and open a new one. How exciting it is to move through life together. To get over these challenges together and look back and be proud of what we have accomplished.
