11 Years

Life here in Pitt has been one crazy rollercoaster for me. One day I am so happy to be here and the next I want to leave. That is how the first three months were. But now as I sit and reflect, I am content on being here. It is starting to feel like home. My kids are happy, they love school and have made losts of friends. That was the hardest part about leaving Utah, how were my kids going to do. They are doing awesome. Doug is happy. We have been wanting his for so long and now that we have achieved it, I think Doug feels he has accomplished his main goal, to get to dental school and now his goal is to finish. I don't know how he does what he does. He gets up early to catch the bus and right now it is in the single digits outside when he leaves. He spends 8 hours learning so many things and stays til 8:00 at night coming home eating dinner, going to bed to wake up and do it all over again. He never complains never says anything bad, just does it. He is so greatful to be here. He is so amazing and I am so proud to be his wife. He is a great example to me. I wish I could be more like him finding the joy and blessings in everything. This week has been the roughest part for him and us. FINALS WEEK!!! 6 tests in 5 days. I can't imagine the stress he is dealing with and yet he is so content. Not to mention that one of the guys in his class that he became friends with died this week. Everything being thrown at him all at once and he deals with it like a rock star. One day at a time. He knows he is blessed and is so thankful to be here. We will be married 11 years tomorrow and I am thankful every day for Doug. He is the most amazing person I know. The lord new I needed him in my life. He is strong mentally physically and spiritually. Helping me in every way he can. I love him with all my heart and I am so thankful that I get to be with him forever. Our family will be together forever. Thank you Doug for everything you do for us and the sacrifices you make. I love you more than words can say!!!!! YBEG
