Diane, Please Take Your Seat. Here.

Today I graduate.

I am not sure in what hour of doubt, despair or dire need of more strength, more words or more energy to keep on going I realized that I already possessed what I needed to continue on and that truly, simply all I could do was all I could do. But, it was. And, I did. I did all I could do. I gave all I could. And today, I give thanks to God.

I finished. Strong. In my GPA. In my spirit. In my soul. I finished. Strong.

Marvin Sapp has a song and today I use it share with you some of my sentiments. Here is his, our, My Testimony:

So glad I made it,
I made it through
In spite of the storm and rain, heartache and pain
I’m still alive declaring you
I made it through
See, I didn’t lose

Experience lost at a major cost
But I never lost faith in you

So if you see me cry,
It’s just a sign that I’m
I’m still alive
I got some scars, but I’m still alive
In spite of calamity,
He still has a plan for me
And it’s working for my good
And it’s building my testimony

So glad I made it,
I made it through
In spite of the storm and rain, heartache and pain
I’m still alive declaring you
I made it through, I didn’t lose
Experienced lost at a major cost,
But I never lost faith in you

I made it thru’
Oh, so if you see me cry
It’s just a sign that I’m, I’m still alive
I got some scars, but I’m still alive
In spite of calamity
He still has a plan for me
It’s working out

Monday night I received this email from Hunter College. It was full of details, but I wanted to share with you the start that wrestled tears from my eyes and gratitude from my soul.

Today I graduate. I knew all I could do was all I could do. So, I did it. All. Love.

    Love,
