Coming to an End

Well just one more week of class then finals, spring break and on to my final quarter at UCC.  This quarter I will be carrying 15 credits.  All but one are design type classes – two online and three in class.  It will be a hard quarter but an exciting one too.  A mix of emotions after three years of balancing home life, family, work and studies, the struggles and the headaches, and the joys and pain.  I couldn’t have done it without the help and support of my family, instructors and fellow classmates.

To my family:

My Equator…The Center Of The World

© Jackie D. Karp
You are the meaning of strength
at its highest peak.
You have courage
when the rest of us are weak.
You inspire me
to live for the now.
And to never give up
Because you don’t know how.
I’ve learned from you
why family comes first.
its because when you need them,
they’re there when you hurt.
No matter the pain
It all hurts the same.
And family you can count on
to always remain.
When the road gets rocky
you seem to take each bump
and walk over them smoothly
hump after hump.
You have no idea
about the affect you’ve made
and with the lessons I’ve learned
my life’s made a change.
Not just a change, also a growth.

To my instructors:

Imparter of Knowledge

Teacher and advisor
Counselor and friend
Imparter of knowledge
Which never has an end.
All these things you were to me
And I am thankful to this day.
I have now succeeded
And you helped show me the way.

To my fellow classmates:

Define Yourself

Author: Karen Mortensen
You are a part of all that surrounds you.
Celebrate your connection to life as you step into the future.
Your abilities can take you to the top,
but it is your character that will keep you there.
Build your character well for it is the foundation of your being.
The adversities you will face will not build your character
– they will reveal it.
Unlock your potential.
Every moment has a hidden gift.
Discover. Dream.
You will create your tomorrows by what you dream today.
Dreams are the touchstones of your character.
Imagine the unimaginable.
This is your time. This is your life.
Seize the moment. Delight in your (time).
Life is your canvas and no one can paint it but you.
Inside you is the key to everything you can imagine and more.
Learn from yesterday, live for today.
You are the hope for tomorrow.
Congratulations on your graduation!
