Too good to be true ... but it is

Summer is not full of lazy days for me, and my lack of regular posting is just one of the casualties. But I made time for this one, because I want to put it in print. I still have to pinch myself to believe it's real.

As you know, DS was accepted to the local state university - a wonderful school close to our home. Because of his severe physical disabilities, living on campus is not an option and so this is ideal. Of course, with college comes a tuition bill and I've been dreading Aug. 1, when fall tuition is due. DS was going to have to take out a Stafford loan to bridge the gap - something that made me sick to my stomach.

But a week ago something amazing happened. One of the organizations we are involved with because of DS's disability announced that they would be footing the bill for DS's college education. Tuition, fees, books and supplies. ALL of it. For four years - as long as he keeps his grades up.

If this is a dream, I sure hope I don't wake up anytime soon. Despite all, we are so very, very blessed.
