All Good Things… My Final Day in the Kitchen

All Good Things… – My Final Day in the Kitchen

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.” – Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV)

The following clichés are true… All good things must come to an end… and guess what?  You CAN teach an old dog new tricks!

I set reasonable goals for my education, and while they had to be tweaked midstream due to unforeseen circumstances, I can proudly say that I have achieved what I set out to do…engage and better my brain, while giving myself  an improved chance at finding a lifelong career.  Not a job…a CAREER.

My journey as a student blogger for Fox in the Kitchen is ending, but my journey toward a successful life is far from over, and it’s highly unlikely that this is the end of my educational training.  I’ve had a heck of a time with this old brain, but I have thoroughly enjoyed being inside the walls of Fox Valley Technical College.  The instructors, the staff, my mentors and peers… there really isn’t much to be said but glowing accolades for the school!

Every day, new doors are opened for me, revealing new opportunities.  Some of them appear terrifying, so I slam the door and run back onto the road.  Others are “wolves in sheep’s clothing”, trying to entice me to enter and follow the wrong course.  Fortunately, my education and life-learned wisdom (mostly through trial and error) has helped my discernment. My faith has kept me on course…and I know with all of my heart that I’m right where God needs and wants me to be at this point in my life.  Each and every breath I take gives me the chance to be a better person and make the world a better place for others, and that’s just what I intend to do…one smile, one good deed, and one cupcake at a time.

I’d like to publicly acknowledge and thank all of the wonderful people in the FVTC marketing department who have allowed me the opportunity to bring you these posts.  It’s been a source of great joy for me to do so.

My next goal is to continue to use my personal food blog and website, “It’s Yummilicious”, as a means to provide great food tips, grocery savings information, and recipes to my readers, but I also plan to start writing a book about my adventures in food and life.  I am hopeful that within the next several months, my physical health will improve enough for me to return to work, at which time I will launch an Internet storefront where I can sell my baked goods.  I hope you’ll join me there.  I’d love for you to see what God does with me next.  I’m about to spread my wings and soar!

I wish you all the very best…always-


My good friend, Gina and I, after the ceremony. We made it!
