Celebrating my friend with a Virtual Toast

This week I got the news that one of my old friends from my undergraduate days just finished her master’s program. This is a woman who has been working a full-time job (in a less than satisfying field) and mothering two children while slowly persuing her degree in a field that she loves and has always excelled. She has persevered through numerous challenges to meet this goal including pregnancy and raising a new baby, various health challenges, and the threat of layoff while providing the sole income for her family. This is a huge accomplishment and I am so proud of and excited for her!

Unfortunately we now live on opposite ends of the country so I cannot celebrate with her in person.

D, I hereby raise a glass in a virtual toast to your dedication, hard work, and inspiring can-do attitude. You are awesome!

  1. Shana,

    I am sorry to be so late in responding to your post. I just saw it today.

    Thank you for your kind words. Being done with school still doesn't seem real to me just yet. But I could get used to not having homework all the time! lol.

    Thank you for your friendship through all of these years. Who would have thought all those years ago in Ms Christie's Chem class "long ago & far away" that we would both be where we are today? You are awesome too!

    Love you,
