And now for the GOOD NEWS!
I said in my last blog post that there was some good news that deserved its own post...
My beloved Dreamweaver, after 85 credit hours of school, untold hours climbing a mountain of homework, working full time while still taking classes and doing her practicum, graduating triumphant with her Ed.S in Marriage and Family Therapy...
then faced the final hurdle of hours more of stress and study (while still working a full time job) to take her licensure exam. This exam is a bug bear...many fail to pass it the first time, some struggle with taking it multiple times.
Saturday we got word from one of her class mates that the results were in, and so I flew to the mail box on my way to set up for my degree and sure enough, the fateful envelope was there.
With Dreamweaver hanging on the phone, I opened it...the cut off for passing was 135 points. She scored 155! And passed it with flying colors the first try!
She is now officially a LMFTI, and on her way to doing her final internship...and better yet she can get paid for doing therapy now, and begin building towards a practice!
I am so very proud of her...she is truly one of my greatest, inspiring heroes, and I am honored and privileged to share my life with her!
Dreamweaver, thanks for all you do, everyday, and I love you with all my heart. You left a steep trail for me to follow...may I fare as well as you!
