Hello everyone, I am sorry I have not been here as much as usual. I was on a day trip yesterday. But the news is that I am getting ready to go to my sister’s graduation. She used to work for a architect and she designed jewelry stores in malls around the country. She also fixed their computer server one day and IT Manager was added to her job description. In spite of having two strokes in 2008 she worked hard regaining all of the abilities. She had lost her speech and movement on the left side. She reevaluated her life and decided she wanted to do something else. So she decided to go back to school. She got an Associate’s Degree in Computer Networking Systems and today she graduates with a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Systems Security. The first degree she had a 4.0 and for the security degree she has a 3.99 and I am really proud of her. This past February she had another stroke and it affected her speech so she was in speech therapy, and off work for three months. The therapy worked and her speech is fine now. She went back to work and school and today is her graduation. She has been brave and courageous. She has kept her wicked sense of humor and she did her best and despite the setbacks, she has accomplished everything. We had made an agreement that I would continue to work until she graduated and then I would retire. So she quit and was accepted at the school. The plan was going just as we planned. Then my doctors told me if I didn’t retire then, 2008, I would end up in a wheelchair or worse. So we needed to adjust our plans and we did, and my sister worked full time for all but the first couple of quarters of her degree. Here in America, we had our economic crash in 2008 so this was all ill timed. But today I am here to tell you her dream has come true. We are off to go to the graduation.
Never give up. You never know what the Universe will bring into your life.
