I see light at the end of the tunnel

Wow...I'm so exhausted. Five finals in the last three days. It's four in the morning and I'm still working on this research paper for my ethnic studies class. I'm praying and breathing a lot. I turn this paper in tomorrow and then I have three weeks off until summer school starts. I can't wait. I just checked my transcipt. I have a running GPA of 3.5 Not bad for a single mom of three who's constantly pulling her hair out! lol Hope everyone is well. Take care and I will get around more once I start my lil mini vacation. Much love and respect to all. :-)

Summer here I come

Next week is finals and then I'm all done with this semester. Yay! I'm so looking forward to having a few weeks off before summer school starts. Life is still going great. Phoenix starts kindergarten in August, and he's so excited! I can't believe it! My babies are growing up! Lauren will be a junior in high school next year. Wow...where does the time go? I'm currently in the process of potty training Orion, and that has been a challenge to say the very least. He's just not interested. Oh well...when he's ready...he's ready. :-) Other then that...I'm just keeping my nose to the grindstone. Going to NA meetings, keeping up with school, and suiting up and showing up for my kids. I figure that's all God really has in store for me right now. I know that Mr. Right is out there...but he'll just have to wait a lil while longer because I still have much work to do. :-)

Dad, Mom, and I went to the award ceremony dinner for the scholarship that I received last night. It was really nice. Very fancy. I didn't know until I got there, but I was the honorary guest. I was saved for the last, since my award was the biggest sum out of everybody's. I received a check for $1000. I'm trying to save up for a new car, so this is really going to help.

All the award recipients had their pre-prepared speeches going on. I was like whoops! Was I supposed to have one of those?! lol I'm used to public speaking because I do so much of it in recovery. As I got up to the podium, I became very emotional. I told everyone that I was just going to wing it. I spoke from my heart. I cried. People cried. My parents were proud.

My life has changed so much in such a short time. I'm coming up on four years clean. July marks the anniversary of leaving my husband and moving the shelter and creating a new life for the kids and I. Life is amazing. Had you told it would be like this a few years ago...I would of never believed. I am so blessed.

I did it!

I have officially completed The Twelve Steps of Narcotics Anonymous.

Step Twelve: "Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to addicts and to practice these principles in all our affairs."

Now it's time for me to start sponsoring other women and give what was so freely given to me. A new way of life.
