The End of an Era

First things first- I saw a shooting star tonight on my drive home. It was so bright and quick and I just really love shooting stars.

Second things second- I graduated from college.  College is now a "been there, done that" on my list and I couldn't be happier.
I have a quote on my headboard by Neal A. Maxwell that says "Faith in God includes faith in his timing." And these past few years have really shown that to be true.  I may have mentioned this before but my the past few years of my life have been all about faith.
I first started college wanting to go into nursing and ended up finding a job that led me to pursue a social work major.  Two months after I made that decision UVU opened a social work program.  I applied, got in, and graduated last week.  I graduated Friday morning at 8.  That same day at 11:20 I had a job interview.  I got a call Saturday afternoon with the job offer and started work this past Monday at 7:45.  That is not the usual college grad story. I have been so blessed to have my life turn out this way.  I could not have planned my life better and that just goes to show how much the Lord knows me.
And not to be that person, but guys- I didn't even get ONE day of "summer vacay".  Not. One. Day. I didn't even get one sleep in day.
I love my new job. I get to work with my same clients as before but on a more intensive level.  And I get paid more which is why I did that whole "college thing" in the first place.

Now that I only work 8 hours a day I will have more time to blog.  And I know I have said this before- but I will do better with this li'l blog here.  Graduation pictures will find their way onto this blog along with other memorable moments from the past few months.
