Alright...so last night when I got back to my house, I did my usual routine of letting the dogs out and checking the mailbox. I was excited to see that I recieved a letter from the IA dept. of public health, and expected it to include my verification of massage therapy licensure. I was dissapointed when I realized that they hadn't recieved my school transcripts and my testing results, which were both supposed to be automatically submitted from their respective areas. I know that I'm at fault for not being on the ball and double checking to see what all is needed to obtain a license. I guess I assumed that my application which asks for transcripts of my classes, would need it directly from the school. I know that its to verify that I am not fudging the papers. So today has been about solutions and not focusing on the problem. A lot of phone calls have been made to figure out what I need to do to resolve the problem.
On the plus side, I happen to be the luckiest woman on earth. When my husband came home, after working overtime, and I was crying because I've been struggling for months to get my life on track....he was there by my side, comforting and reassuring me that everything is going to work out. He said "the things that are most worth having are the most challenging to get". Which is what I've decided will be my mantra for this week.
My husband is my biggest supporter, my hero, and my best friend. I would truly be lost without him, and I thank God every day that we found each other.
