Honestly, it's not as perfect as when it was on the horizon, but that's just life. Nothing is ever perfect, but it can still be lovely. There are at least a million things I don't know, but I have great coworkers and a great supervisor who have been a big help (and very patient).
I'm standing here at this milestone, and I have many more dreams that I hope to see realized, but I am so thankful and all I can think to say is:
Here I raise my ebeneezer
Hither by Thy help I've come
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home
(From Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing)
