An Update: Mule Face, May 2014.

Agnes Deanne (formerly known as "Mule-Face") is now 19 years old and getting ready to go to college at the University of Fairbanks. And she is no longer an outsider; she has made a lot of friends during her last year of high school and life has gotten much better.

 Hard to believe that I am out of school and am 19 years old now.

Where does the time go by so fast? Is it possible that it's been at least five years since I last put pen to paper?  WOW!!

I'm getting ready to go to college in the fall: I will be attending the University of Alaska - Fairbanks.  I will be majoring in child education; I am going to be a teacher to children with special needs (primary grades). I decided that I wanted to be a teacher about a year ago.

I no longer view myself as ugly.  I may not be a glamour-queen, but I'm learning to love myself, even in SPITE of how I may look to others.  Sure, there are those people who still gawk, stare, or flap their lips whenever they see me, but I've learned to brush them aside and just focus on myself and my best interests.  

Believe me, it's made a world of difference.

I'm also active in church.  I go to Anchorage First Baptist Church every Sunday with my grandmother and I love it.  I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour when I was 17, two years ago.  I haven't looked back; it's been the best decision I have ever made.  Suddenly, since having Jesus in my heart, life has done a 360-degree turnaround.

The change in my life has been nothing but miraculous.

This will also be the last entry where you will see the title "Mule Face".  From now on, I'm Agnes, potential college student and friend, future teacher to kids with special needs.  

I am very happy with my life right now.  

Don't know when I will write again, but let's face it: I'm not going to wait five years to do so!  Please forgive me on my lapse of communication.  No, I have not died ... I am very much alive, as you can see, or else I wouldn't be writing this down.  LOL  I will write in here again soon; take care and God bless!

~Love, your friend in Alaska, Agnes (Aggie) Deanne.  :)

This story, while brief, reached my heart and made me feel for Agnes...sadness for what she had been through and pride in her resolve to rise up and make something of herself that she could truly feel good about. Her religious belief helped with that, in fact made it possible, yes? Great job, Karen. Sorry I have been away so long. Many blessings to you my dear.
Be well,

The best thing for a child to have for himself/herself is knowing that no matter what he/she looks like, he/she is an individual and deserves to have everything just like anyone else, including proper education.

Great job on the story, Karen!!!

Sandie :o)
