After a long couple years, the graduation is over. Today I graduated the University of Oklahoma putting a lot of stressful times away. This is tough enough when you are 18 years old but when you are 43 and have a full family life and a full time job, it makes it even more of a challenge. This day was supposed to be a huge moment and it was to a degree. I feel like the whole event was under the influence of drugs. I have not slept for more than three continuous hours in a week and the doctor gave me some itching medication for my poison ivy that really made me sleepy.
It was a good day though and I have a wonderful family that was there for me. My beautiful wife Sunday shown in this photo has made so many sacrifices for me in our 20 years of marriage. She sacrificed so much for me in getting this accomplishment done that I really do appreciate her. She is testament to the Proverbs 31 woman spoken of in the Bible. She is so incredible that words cannot express.
Now that I have this behind me, I can get back to life again. The time involved in completing this goal has been amazing. Our whole lives have been adjusted to make time for this. God has been very good to us but has taken an unfortunate back seat to this goal. It is time to put HIM first again and remember where my blessings come from.
