This is why, and how, and because. It is the motivation, the knowledge, the encouragement.
Every time one of my friends has the privilege of making such an announcement, I am encouraged. Because I KNOW that one day soon I will make one of my own.
It is announcements like this that remind me to never, ever give up.
Back to work!
*In case you didn't click both links, they're different--TWO of my friends had big announcements this week. You should check them out. Seriously.
