Um, yeah. Seems like the budget cuts in Virginia hit me and and took away my dream of getting my Master's to be a Reading Specialist.
I just got off the phone with my college and then with the Superintendent's Secretary, who had to confirm what the college had told me, that because of budget cuts, he could reimburse me for the classes but couldn't pay for them outright. And we don't have that kind of money, heck we're paying more each month than Chris brings in extra to pay for his schooling.
I just feel like the walls caved in on me. And wouldn't you know, this happens when all the funding for the year has dried up to get my classes paid for any other way. It would have been nice for someone to actually let me know this instead of me figuring it out for myself right before Christmas!
He (the supt.) said for me to call on Monday but I'm sure he is going to tell me the same thing. It isn't his fault that the state has cut funding 3.5 million dollars. But it sure hurts like the dickens, like my heart has broken!
It ran through my mind a minute ago that when God closes one door, He opens another, but I just can't see it clearly right now and I feel like the rug and lots of hope has been pulled out from under me.
Please pray for my peace, cause I sure don't feel it right now. I don't want this to be happening.
