Three years ago I went back to college. Not sure if I could face the challenges of working full time, being a full time single mother and going to school. This challenge has been extremely rewarding. Later this year I will graduate from college as an honor student. It was often difficult to keep going especially last year when my father passed away a couple of weeks into the spring semester. I was taking a full load and really felt like I should take some time off but I recalled a conversation with my father and immediately I knew that I had the inner strength to keep going.
