Congratulations Sarah!

God's timing through this whole ordeal has been amazing! He has planned everything out perfectly, and He's done it without my help! LOL! In spite of a cancer diagnosis, chemo, radiation, surgery, more chemo,  and countless doctor appointments, I have been able to attend Ashley's graduation from high school, my nephew's wedding, and a reunion of college friends. And this past Friday I had the amazing honor of attending our daughter Sarah's graduation from the University of Oklahoma!! God worked it out so that I was not sick with chemo and was able to travel to Norman to be there! 

We are so very proud of Sarah!! She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Anthropology and a minor in non-profit studies. And she graduated a semester early!! Wow! She is beautiful inside and out, and very smart! 

Thank you, God, for letting me be Sarah's mom! 
Thank you for your perfect timing! 

"Children are a gift from the Lord;
      they are a reward from him."

Psalm 127:3

"How kind the Lord is! How good he is!
      So merciful, this God of ours!"

Psalm 116:5

    Graduating Summa Cum Laude is impressive, watch out during your Christmas Monopoly game, now she's got a degree to back her up!
