So Proud!

My beautiful, wonderful sister Lizzy graduated Cum Laude from Fordham Law School in NYC last weekend! I honestly get emotional thinking about it...she has worked SO hard over these past three years and I am so proud of her!  She said, "I really am grateful that I've been able to have this experience in Law School. I wanted to be a mom long before I ever wanted to have this degree, but it is amazing how God works and gives us what we need to make us grow. So I guess I would say that knowing that this is God's plan for me, I wouldn't want it any other way, and I know that everything is happening in his timing. I am grateful and really wouldn't change it." I know she has changed the lives of those around her and been an amazing light and example of good. I think everyone has experiences in life where you realize that you can't choose exactly how things are going to go. (I forget this too often!) And once you let go and trust in God you learn that God's plans are always better in the long run. I love you my dear sister...and as Bree says, "GRADULATIONS!" (Combination of graduation and congratulations :)
