Pure Happiness...

I believe there are not enough words out there right now to describe how THRILLED I am that I completed my Masters of Arts at The Ohio State University!!! whooooohoooo! My oral defense was today and thanks to God and to all the good friends' thoughts and prayers, it went REALLY well. My advisor  brought tears to my eyes and when she looked at the other professor who was in the oral defense as well, and said, "I haven't recommend anyone  for the PhD Program in the past couple of years. I remembered I did it once for this girl who has tremendous potential. So I am happy to say Stella that I will be signing this part of the form for me. I would love to see you here with us". WOW. and next thing I know I look like Niagara Falls...tears of pure happiness running down my face. I want to remember this moment. I want to remember this day...the day  I got to make one of my dreams come true! 

Thanks to God for its guidance and for never letting me go of his hands. Thanks to my family for believing in me and supporting me even when we are miles and miles apart. Thanks to my friends for their calls, messages and texts until the last minute today, my bloggers friends who have been leaving positive messages, my here friends, my way over on the other side of the world friends for trusting me that I will make it to the end.   

*sigh* (the good kind)
