Bye Bye 2011!!!

January 1, 2012 THIS IS THE YEAR I BEGIN THE REST OF MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my excitement is just off the charts, I'm sure you haven't noticed. Today I was thinking just how truly blessed I am. For Christmas my thoughtful husband bought me the BEST gift ever. What is it? A new laptop to use for school? Nope. The raspberry stethoscope I am drooling over? Nope. A new heavy duty backpack? Nope. The best thing my husband got me for Christmas was this:
My first official school shirt!!!


How sweet & thoughtful was that? I know to other people it may not seem like a lot but to me school means everything. I posted a picture of it on my FB & my nephew said "I saw your new school shirt, are you actually having to go to campus?" And I said "Yep" & he said "Aw it's like your a college student" haha, which of course I AM!! And that reality really sunk in today. I am going to be a full fledged University student. And what sunk in was not that I was going to school, technically I've been in school for the last 2 years, but what hit me was that I am going to be a full time college student. And at 39 years old, with 2 kids, I think we all know that not everyone gets that kind of opportunity. So what really got me was how truly blessed I am to have a husband who is willing to work his butt off these next two years to help me achieve something that would have been so much harder without him. And honestly I'm not even sure how possible it would've been without him. So today on January 1, 2012 I am THOROUGHLY thankful that I am going into this new year with a husband that is so thoughtful, loving and hard working. A man that's willing to sacrifice for me to have the opportunity I need to better my life and in turn our lives together. And I couldn't ask God for a better spouse if I tried. I thank the Lord for small favors all the time, but Eugene is a big one and I am SO thankful for him! Now bring on school so I can wear my new shirts. Yeah he bought me two, one short sleeve & one long sleeve :)
