Hello All.  For those of you who have listened (i.e. "read") to all my troubles lately I would like to give a sincere Thank You.  And I would like to share some good news too.  For the past three years I have been working towards my Masters Degree in Education.  I finished my last class two weeks ago and today I received official confirmation from the school that I have met all my program requirements.  Thus, I will be graduating "online" from school in June.
I would like to give an especially big ((((((((((((((((((((HUG))))))))))))))))))) and thanks to Karen and Kitt especially.  During these past three years they have always been there to support and encourage me when I felt like I couldn't go forward anymore.  I have the utmost respect and admiration for them and all they do here.
Thank you!

Congratulations Cass,
That's a heck of an acheivement for yourself. You've earned something that no-one can take away from you. You went for it,,,,,,And you did it. Remember this day in the future and when life tries to get you down look at that diploma on the wall and remind yourself,,,,, "I" wanted it and "I" made it happen!!!
With that in mind nothing can hold you back.
I'm so proud of you.
