Graduation Day - Its here

22 years ago I became a teenage mother...I was told by some family and friends that my life was over.  That I was going to be a welfare recipient, living in low income housing, that I wasn't going to be anything.  For a period of time I believed it...I believe that those adults knew better and they were right....But God...God said I was to be the head and not the tail....God put people in my life, in my path to drip motivation on believe in me when I didn't believe in myself, people who told me I could do anything. 
As the years past I started to have a little belief in myself...I started on the journey of making changes, improving my lift, improving my daughters lives, but the challenges of living  as a single parent got in the way and it was important for me to put a roof over our heads and food on the table so I stop.  I stopped going to school...but I still had that feeling of unfinished business in the back of mind.  Two years ago by the encouragement of my oldest daughter Brittani who was in college at the time I enrolled in College to try to finish what I started.  Well two years has passed and now today I am about to graduate.  I finished my degree in December 2013, but I will march across the big stage in front of my family and friends and I/m very excited about that.  This started out as finishing up some unfinished business, but the more I thought about it...its accomplishing a goal I set for my life. I want to be that example for my daughters.
I had a photo shoot yesterday here are a few pictures...
