On 12/12/2015, my husband became a COLLEGE GRADUATE!!!! YIPPEEE!!!
After being out of college for nearly 13 years, he made a commitment to himself and his family to go back. In 2013, he returned to Fort Valley State University, changed his major, and the dream was finally cultivated on 12/12/2015.
It was an awesome and epic experience. He is the first of his mother’s children to become a COLLEGE GRADUATE!
Many late nights and early mornings, final exams, some sleepless nights, coming home from work after 12 hours to study and to watch his dream materialize was a great feeling. Being his wife, being there for support , and probably getting on his nerves at times, stressing him out, I know that I could not be any prouder of him.
He showed our children that no matter what, “NEVER GIVE UP!” When times got hard, he could have called it QUITS! Some nights, I sat up with him to help because not only was this changing his life, it was affecting our lives.
There are two goals that were achieved with him graduating:
- Achieving a College Education
- Providing a better life for his family
Not often, do you see a black male who is doing something positive and being a family man.
Thank God it is over!
So here are some pictures of the celebration! By the way, this was the best birthday gift I could have asked for!
Happy Reading! I hope you enjoyed it! 🙂
