Congrats to me!

I can't believe it is over. It has been an amazing 2 years of school where I have discovered my passion for helping women. Not only has today been an exciting day, but it has been quite the spiritual day for me.

As I realized the significance of finishing this chapter in my life I decided to read my Patriarchal Blessing that was given to me by a man who had the authority from our Heavenly Father to be a mouthpiece for him on this earth. I remeber that day clearly and have reflected on it often. Each time I read my blessing I truly know the love that my Heavenly Father has for me.

The line that reflects most upon completing my formal education reminds me that because of my "good education I will be able to contribute in the world and help others who are less fortunate." I used to believe that this meant having to travel to a third world country to help others (which I may do someday... who knows), but on this day I feel so blessed...
I feel my Saviors love so profoundly today...
And because of this love I know that many of the women I will help and have helped have been less fortunate than I. This part of my blessing is unfolding before my eyes and I know it is only because of the righteous decisions I have made in my life that have made this possible.

*Side note to one of my most faithful readers... Sorry for the churchy stuff Erin... I love you!*
