Just when you think you are eating the largest sh*t sandwich, life reminds you of why you need to keep going

by Janie Jones

Good things do sometimes come from hard work and dedication.

I just received a letter awarding me a very healthy scholarship.  It will cover 90% of my tuition for the next two years at the community college while I catch up my math skills and get some prerequisites for my Bachelors of Science degree out of the way.  As you might imagine, there was much euphoria and happy dancing.  I can’t believe my good luck.  I could cry for happiness for a change.

I wish to thank everyone who has sent me notes of encouragement, who have politely listened to me complain, and my professors who wrote me lovely letters of recommendation.  I apologize to the spud for being a homework orphan.  And I especially wish to apologize and thank Leif.   It can’t be easy living with a crazy lady like me.  But, if we’ve made it this far, we can make it the full 9 yards.

Please, dear blog friends, share my joy.  Life does reward us for being decent human beings.
