College and Life

I love the fall. I love the fall for so many reasons. Because the weather gets crisp and cool, and the leaves turn gorgeous colors. Because it's back-to-school time ... time to buy that "back-to-school" outfit and a new pair of shoes. Oh yes, and of course, because of football.

And all of this takes me back to college.

I recently made a trip back to my Alma mater for a weekend of friends, family, football, and fun ... which lead me to reminisce about my college days.

College. What a wondrous time in my life. Four fabulous, life changing years.

Now I can look back, and truly say, that my years in college made me who I am today. Not just the book learning I did, but the friends I made in college. The experiences I had. The adversity I faced. The faith that I found, developed, nurtured and strengthened. All of these things made me the woman I am today. And I feel so blessed for the opportunities I've had, the successes that I've had so far, and God willing, the bright future that I have in front of me.

Life is a blessing, and a gift ... enjoy every moment!

Notre Dame our Mother ... pray for us.
