Moment of the Week

My moment of the week this week isn’t actually my moment, but it still meant something to me.  This week, my oldest and dearest, my BFF of 25 years got her doctorate degree in education.   Ever since she told me that she wanted this, about 4 years ago, I could not wait for the day that I could call her Dr. J. G and this week that day came.

Dr. J. G is a phenomenal woman!   Despite the distance and time that goes by between seeing one another, when we do, we pick up as if we had just seen each other the day before without skipping a beat.   She has been with me through the very best and the very worst that life threw at me and there is no one whose opinion and advice I value more.  I have the absolute utmost respect for her and even more so as I watched her work endlessly to obtain this dream of hers.  Working, raising two children and maintaining a wonderful marriage (props to her hubby, he was amazing during all of this) takes such a great amount of time, but adding on all that is required to obtain such a prestigious degree… that takes dedication and perseverance.  And now it’s finally done and it finally paid off.

I couldn’t be prouder or more happy for her.  I even have tears writing this, lol.  So how could this not be my moment of the week!?!

What was yours?
