Today was the first day of a new semester at the college. It was energizing to see the parking lot full again and students wandering the halls. Like the New Year, a new semester is filled with hope and promise. The start of dreams and journeys. I’m always grateful to be part of it.
For Christmas, Patrick’s parents got me a beautiful embossed matte and frame for my Master’s diploma. I’d been meaning to frame it but hadn’t yet. Today I hung it in my office. I’m thankful again that I was able to complete that goal. Seeing my diploma on the wall was a great reminder of what my job is all about.
