Last night my Mr. AGPMan and I attended an Open House for the first semester graduating class at SNU. A week from today (that is SATURDAY the 8th!!!) I will watch my beloved receive his LONG OVER DUE diploma. I snapped both pictures you see while he was waiting to get his cap and gown...
As I reflect back upon the past 18 months I'm so grateful Steven was finally able to return to school and earn his degree in Computer Science. Even though there will always be a twinge of regret over him not finishing college when we were still young, today I'm overjoyed the path was made straight once again.
Ever since his class ended two weeks ago I've had to work at getting use to my guy being accessible again. It's just the weirdest thing as I've come and gone alone since about May of last year. For so long his evenings and weekends were filled up and overflowing with studying and classwork that I rarely asked him for help unless it was really important. I learned really fast what was critical and what was not. For 32 years he was my go-to-guy and I really had to learn to function a lot on my own~ It took a lot of adjusting I can assure you! Now, instead of being a student he's just my hubby again...and I'm one proud and HAPPY wifey.
Last weekend he said:
"You wanna go junkin' or go see a movie?"
We both missed our old life so much.
We feel like we've come home again.
For those of you who followed the school drama/saga since the beginning and offered your words of encouragement...well again, I can't thank you enough.
God is good.
About to cross the finish line now...
This next week I'll be showing you pictures of our home dressed for Christmas. Don't faint...but gone are the pink decorations (I know! I KNOW!)... In their place are soft, natural whites and a tree filled with family photos, keepsake ornaments, vintage tinsel and all things merry and bright.
Blessings for a lovely day. December 1st. Wow...the year has flashed by with lightening speed~
Love to you...
