So, I went to my graduation check a couple of weeks ago and found out that I will indeed be graduating in May! But, instead of being 3 hours away from meeting the requirements to sit for the CPA exam like I thought, I am 9 hours away!
No big deal, right? Just take the extra 6 hours and be done with it.
But, it is a big deal to me! I am SOOO burned out.
I came home almost in tears over this. I've put 5 years of work towards this CPA exam, and now I'll have to do ANOTHER semester? I don't think I can handle that.
Wise Woman: Why are you getting your CPA again?
Me: So that if something happens to Micah I won't have to sell my soul to
McDonald's just to feed my family.
Wise Woman: Think of it: you have 4
kids and you lose your husband and their father, so you think it will be good to
go back to work? They will need you to be there.
Me: Yeah, but what
option do I have?
Wise Woman: my vote is a bigger insurance policy.
So, after some talking and praying with Micah: it's decided. We can easily buy enough insurance on Micah so that I could pay off our house and raise 3 children without me ever going back to work. AND, what's more: we can pay for 10 years of that insurance just with the money I would have spent studying for and taking the CPA exam!
Isn't the Lord good?
I have been discouraged with school for some time now, and suddenly: I'm DONE in May. No 6 months of studying, no 4 extremely trying tests. I'm DONE.
