The end of the road...

I have been, quite possibly, the most negligent blogger. So, my deepest apologies to everyone. However... I have BIG NEWS!!

Sunday evening, I received an email from the Thesis Director informing me that my thesis has been APPROVED!!!

I am officially Dr. Amy Stewart. WHAAAAAAAAHOOOOOOOO!

At this point, I will be printing the thesis up and mailing it to the thesis formatter and once the thesis is formatted perfectly, I will print multiple copies on cotton paper and mail it to the school for binding. Graduation is in June.

Holy Moly! I can't believe that I actually made it this far. Words cannot describe the relief, excitement, giddiness, joy, and wonder that I feel right now.

At this point, I'm not sure what to do about blogging. Part of me thinks I should take my horrible track record as a sign that perhaps I'm just a blog reader, and part of me thinks I should actually blog more, now that I'm not trying to write a thesis. Over the next few weeks I'm going to think and pray about that. If I do decide to continue blogging, a new blog will most likely be formed, and I'll announce that from here. If not, then my blogosphere presence will live on in comments on others blogs.

That being said, I want to thank you for taking the time to follow along with me on this journey. It has been a life changing process for me. The journey has taught me many things about worship, about working with people, about myself. I take with me deep relationships, wonderful memories, some bitterness and a tad more cynicism, a lot of hope for the future, and many more questions than when I started.

For now, I'm going to play some Sudoku and sleep in on Friday :)
