hope


"Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you"

- Walt Whitman



Today I'm feeling hopeful that there is actually an end in sight. I'm getting better (very slowly) and I haven't even had to resort to voodoo! I have two papers, my thesis defense, and a final and then I will be done with school. I've purchased tickets to Los Angeles for a short trip to check out schools with my husband (for him - not me - I would punch myself in the face if I thought about more schooling right now). I also bought a plane ticket to Phoenix to visit my most favorite person in the world (who recently turned 7! Can you believe that?). That visit will be my graduation present to myself. :)

Besides all that, the trees in front of my house are in full bloom and look gorgeous. I have about half of my tulips up and smiling at me each morning, and I even have quite a few daffodils still hanging on! I just love spring! Don't you just find it to be one of the most hopeful times of year? After all the winter, there is new life! Ahhhh... now if I can just focus long enough to get these last few things done.

I'm getting excited for you. :-) I wish I could take pretty spring pictures, but the drought and wind and wildfires have made our spring pretty drab. Anyway, looking forward to graduation pics...
