After 16 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I took the leap and went back to college. It was a challenge for me, my husband, and my kids as we juggled our already hectic schedules.
After the first year of classes, I had to submit work for review in order to be accepted into my desired major. Preparing for that review was stressful. The day I turned in my work for review, I returned home and found the “you are special today” plate at my place. My family was celebrating my effort even though we did not know what the outcome would be. I was touched.
The following week was cause for a second celebration as I had passed the review and was accepted.
