A long hard road comes to a pleasant end!
Some of you folks may know that for the past several years I have been on a bit of a journey through the educational system.
I gave up my original career a few years back and worked my way through college. Graduated magna cum laude in 2007. Went through the nightmare of applying to lawschool and was finally accepted.
Then I began lawschool in August of 2007 and somehow managed to get through law school in only 2 1/2 years with the help of my beautiul wife (who God blessed me with), plenty of hard work, sleepless nights, support from freinds and family, and a lot of prayer.
I graduated from Law School in December 2009, turned 40 yrs old in January 2010, and took the Bar Exam in February 2010. Since then I have been sweating bullets, because I certainly did not want to have to go through that again.(studying day and night for weeks on end and taking a two day 16 hour exam is no fun)
About two hours ago I found out that I PASSED! I am so excited I can't express it in words.
I'm just an old country boy from South Florida who did construction work for years to make a living. But after getting married and having a kid I decided I could probably use the gifts that God has given me for better purposes and could make a better life for my family. I wanted to see if this American dream stuff was really true. Not a single person in my family on either my mom or dad's side had ever even graduated from college. I would be the first. I had faith in God, that he would lead me in the direction I needed to go. I guess everything they say is true, if you set your sights on something and work hard in this country, you can acheive it. God Bless America! I am so fortunate and blessed to have been born in this country.
I hope my story might be of inspiration to someone who is being called but is afraid to take a leap of faith.
Someone once told me: If you want to build your faith in God, set your sights so high that without His help you will surely fail. That's what I did, and he helped me through.
Next step, get a job. lol.
