I have news that I have been bursting to tell you…
Once our tax return goes through we will have enough money to pay off the last of our student loans! Excited is far too mild to describe my feelings. More like I-want-to-shout-and-cry-and-dance (even in Walmart)!
Sometimes the three years of scrimping and saving during law school seemed to stretch on for ever. Sometimes I didn’t want to put nearly every spare penny since Joshua started his clerkship toward paying the loan. There have been many times that I wanted to just quit.
Yet during this journey God has been so good to us. We have been blessed and encouraged and inspired time and again.
- Blessed by unexpected gifts on days when the boost was greatly needed.
- Encouraged by reminders that God is sovereign and holds our future in His wise hands.
- Inspired by your stories of sacrifice and giving and debt-free life.
This chapter of our lives has been filled with many lessons, but I am so glad that it is coming to an end.
To celebrate (and channel my excitement into something more productive than dancing in Walmart), I’ll be hosting a series of give-aways on February 29th and March 1st from some of my very favorite resources!
Some of you are probably thinking, “what’s so exciting about just paying off a student loan?”
I know, I know! It’s not like we’re paying cash for a house or a trip to Europe.We’re all on different stages of the financial road. Even the little milestones are worth celebrating though, right?
Won’t you celebrate with us and join me for the the upcoming giveaways?
