In The Home Stretch

Well, I have officially started Week 9 of 14 in my Paralegal class at Boston University. I cannot believe how quickly the time has flown! I was so afraid that the workload of an online class would be overwhelming, but my dh convinced me that even if it was, I could do anything for 14 weeks! He was right. Some classes have been harder than others, but my experience in the field has definitely helped. I cannot imagine coming into all this information without any experience. Each module is covered in two weeks' time - that is a LOT of information to absorb and understanding in such a short time!

So, with that said, I am just so very grateful to God for His perfect timing with this coursework. I have wanted to get my certificate for YEARS, but just never did it. God knew that I would be ready NOW. The years of experience, together with my most recent participation in REAL LIFE on some cases that were perfect examples of the fact patterns used in class, have made this course so very enjoyable and manageable.

I am absolutely loving being back in school. My mind is already contemplating what I can study next. Alas, I could be a lifelong student if I let myself be. Maybe some kind of theology or Greek class is in order....hmm, I'll have to pray on that.
