Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy

I just found out that I was chosen for a scholarship that will help fund my summer school classes!! The Arkansas Council for Women in Higher Education grants 4 scholarships annually to women currently working in higher education who are also pursuing post graduate degrees. There are three $500.00 scholarships and 1 $750.00 award/scholarship.

I got the big one!!!! Praise God with me!!!

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!!

I think I'm going to cry. I've had all sorts of "Can I really do this?" moments during the past year of grad school. I've always done well in school, but this is the cream of the crop. Am I on the same level with my little degree from a small university? I'm a book loving English major in a techno-intense field. Am I really up to this?

Thank you Jesus! For the money, yes, but primarily for the vote of confidence. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

If a backwoods country bumpkin' like me can get a grad degree, anyone can. Just keep on keepin' on and don't look back. It just takes a lot of work, determination and a great lack of sleep but YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations, Lisa! That's fantastic.

I have complete confidence that you're going to make it. You're one of the smartest, hardest-working people I know. You have a wonderful, supportive family and lots of friends to back you up. And I can't forget to mention that there's a certain "Man Upstairs" Who's pulling for you too. :-)
