That's what I spent several minutes of my day doing on Thursday, after I applied for graduation. This was of course after I cried. I have tried several times in the past to go back and finish school, but something always came up. I guess I was supposed to have this journey for a reason.
Now that I am ever so close to seeing my dreams realized I am overcome with emotions. I have waited so long for this, now just a few months more of hard work, and I will be done. I will have my college degree. I just have to find the perfect spot to hang it. Hence the staring at the wall. I thought about putting it between two of the girls framed pieces of artwork...but I don't want to overshadow their accomplishments. I checked out the adjacent wall, but it doesn't seem big enough. The opposite wall is covered by a bookcase and the other adjacent wall is basically all window. What a dilemma.
Regardless of where I put it, I know that I will be very excited about earning it. Sometimes I think we appreciate the value of things a little more when we have to go on a journey to get them. This has definitely been a long and winding road for me, but I can see the bright lights of the arena ahead of me, and I am oh so happy.
