Thankful Thursday - Successful Defense

Dropping in for a quick hello and to capture such a big day on my little space here on the web.

This afternoon, with my hubby in the room, I successfully defended my doctoral dissertation.  My committee voted to accept it and then they opened the door and greeted me for the first time as "Dr.". 

The feeling is completely unreal.

I'll be writing more about it soon but for tonight I'll be going to bed with one less thing to worry about in my life, content in knowing that this phase in my life is complete thanks to my God, my family, and my friends who've supported me along the way.  This is such a personal accomplishment for me and though I don't particularly care if anyone knows I've succeeded I want to shout it from the rooftops. 

I did it!
