Dr. Blake Ring
Friday, December 9, 2011 is really a day that changed our family. 6 years out of 6 years and 6 months of marriage have been spent with Blake in school. The other 6 months were spend on studying and test and interview taking to get into the PhD program.
I am so proud of this husband of mine. So proud of the days upon days he was able to hole up in a closet size office and type away. In awe of the way in which he appeared home after hours hunched over a desk, ready to wrestle with the children and unload the dishwasher.
I honestly believe that the past several years will remain some of the hardest of our families existance...
But, how faithful and good our Lord is. There were so many times we honestly wondered and pondered on whether or not we would ever reach this point... Whether the fruit of our families labor would come to pass. The day went too quickly. The weekend passed to fast.
But, oh are we enjoying ourselves now. Weekends full of playing. Chore lists that actually have tasks marked off. Date nights that are not cancelled. Family nights full of games and laughing.
Relief. Peace... This is gonna be a good life.
