In Russian зубоврачебная лицензия гигиены

in Greek οδοντική άδεια υγιεινής
in Arabic أسنانيّة حالة حفظ صحّة رخصة
in Japanese 歯科衛生学免許証
in Korean 치과 위생 면허

in Portuguese licença dental da hygiene
in German zahnmedizinische Hygienelizenz
in Spanish Licencia dental de la higiene
in French permis dentaire d'hygiène
in Italian autorizzazione dentale dell'igiene
(ok, ok, I'll stop...)'s music to my ears.

Thank you Lord for family and friends that have believed in me and encouraged me. (Boy, there were many times that I was whiney, with a capital "WH"... Sorry hon!) To you girls that went through the program- congratulations!!! (they helped me many times) and time and time again, I have been told what a tough but thorough dental hygiene program we graduate from at Armstrong Atlantic State University. Thank you to the faculty and staff who have prepared us to be hygienists. (I really strive to do my best, cuz the reputation of equipping their students well, preceeds us).

I am excited about being a Registered Dental Hygienist. :o) Our girls (theluckiestmrs. in her 4th year and little miss in her 2nd year at UK's School of Dentistry) have inspired and amazed me. Whew! this past two years were plenty tough for me!

After getting a letter stating one application fee was not received ...and the wrong transcript (didnt show the degree) ...and resending a check and transcript (certified this time) ...and almost daily calls ...and constantly checking the internet for notification... (I had just checked in yesterday morning and it still said "pending").

But TA DA! last night, real late, last night. There it was-the electronic notification.

"Don't have my actual official hard copy of the license yet, but it's... "in the mail!"

*Oh! I have had my class photo to post with all the gals in their tidy-white uniforms... but now where did I put it?*

One more thing! Molly thank you for giving me my very first, numero uno award :o) Such fun! I appreciate The Encouragement from my Heart award. It is great to meet other bloggers!

It is supposed to be passed on to some favorite blogging friends. (and I like what Molly posted "you do not have to pass it on or even post it, I just wanted you to know how much I enjoy your blog.") With that thought, I also want to let you know that your blog blesses me! Thank you for your encouragements and here's a heartfelt encouragement award sent to you:
*my darling daughter "theluckiestmrs." you always inspire me... although this says "sistah's for Life award"... I want to pass this sweet ward to you for always encouraging me (through some of my whiney moments during school!)
*Kim your posts are full of messages of faith and encouragement! Thank you!
*Tracey love that you took a need and turned it into a great and successful craft that allows you to be with your little ones. I would love to take one of your classes.
*Denise wow! how do stay so organized! Seeing and reading about your work shop, has really encouraged me to get my "act together"!

It was hard to pick just a few, cuz I love reading about and am encouraged by all those that I follow.

Miss Sweet Tea, thank you! Yes, It feels so great to actually have that DH number and not just be thinking about it and working towards getting it.

Blessings dear friend!

Kim: I'm happy you like your blogger award. It really is a great one, since your blog entries have really been fun and encouraging to me :o)

Debbie: I'm so glad you stopped by! and do come back again :o)

theclaxtonfamily: I have stopped in at your family blog and had fun looking through all your entries :o) this will be so special for Kyle to read when he is older.

Tickled Pink And Green: Again, thank you for your many comments on my other posts :o) and how great is it, that your sister-in-law is a DH! How long has she been? I wish I could already say at my interviews: "Why yes, Dental Hygienist for 20 years!"

Charis: (thank you lovely daughter!!! for commenting, hehe Hey you revealed your identity, LittleMiss :o)

I wish you had a blog for me to follow! Especially during your "reign" as a Kentucky Derby princess, since dad and I werent able to see you at everything with us being in Georgia!

Surely, you can squeeze a blog in between dental school classes, studies, clinic, running, exercising, friends, sister, brother, brother-in-law time, traveling back & forth from Louisville & Lexington, facebook, etc. Actually, I dont know how your sister or any others do it with the schedules they have :o) I definitely had to wait til my classes were done! LOVE YOU!
