November the first. Can you believe it? Seems like yesterday we were all whining about the heat of the summer sun and now here we are closing in on winter! I'd love to tell you that for my Mr. AGPMan and I the year has flown by, but that wouldn't be the truth. I do believe the past 12-18 plus months have been the slowest passing months we've EVAHHHHH lived. EVAHHHHH!
They say good things come to those who wait and I suppose that is truer for us today that ever before. Tonight my guy will attend one of his last three remaining FIVE HOUR LONG~Thursday Night Classes~and in just two short weeks he will complete the accelerated degree program he began in May 2011. After years and years of talking about returning to school he finally got his bummerita in gear and walked right back thru the very door he walked out of as a twenty-something kid in 1978....
On December the 8th of this year he'll
dance jump run walk across the stage at Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma and receive his college diploma. He will officially have earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science.
LottaWattah under the bridge since the picture above was taken back in November 1977. We were both in college and didn't have a clue what was in store for us or the many twists and turns in the road of life we would face together.
Quite a journey we've been on.
Quite a journey!
The photo below was snapped back in 1984 around the time I found out I was going to have our daughter... Busy days raising our little son, Brandon, and they were about to get even more exciting when baby #2 arrived in October of the same year.
No time and no money for school!
If you missed any of the posts about setting things right in our lives the first one began HERE.
And here we are last Christmas.
A whole lot older and a lot wiser, too! Today my beloved has silver streaked hair and a lot less of it, but still as handsome as ever. We are still madly in love and blessed to be together after 34 years of marriage. We are still passionate about life and still committed to bettering ourselves and finishing the things we started so long ago.
It's never too late to go back and right a wrong. Never.
Not sure I'll be able to contain my joy (or stay silent) come graduation day. You know how they always say
HOLD YOUR APPLAUSE 'TILL THE END...
Well, are you kidding me? Seriously? Do they honestly believe this high-maintenance-girl is going to keep quiet while watching the man of her dreams grab his diploma and fulfill his life-long desire of earning his college education?
Not gonna happen.
I'm going to be a crying, wailing, cheering fool and I don't care whose watching.
The countdown to the celebration has begun!
Love to you...
