Lessons on Life and Love

can only come with time.
I'm so amazed that Josh loves me enough he gave up his dream job of becoming a surgeon. It has been a huge sacrifice of his talent and interests. He believed he could be happy in pathology. He knew me and the kids would be.
And, I'm amazed that I love him enough to tell him it is okay to switch back. And it is, it really is. I know it will be hard. Leaving Arkansas will be tearful. But it will be right.
We celebrate 10 years next month. I don't think we could have made such decisions starting out. With time, love is stronger, patience comes, sacrifice is worth it.
I'm looking forward to seeing Josh have a very successful career as a surgeon (after all!)
We don't know details as to where or when his training will start up again for surgery, but it will happen at the right place in the right time. He is setting up interviews.

I love the wisdom that is coming with age. And I love how much love I'm discovering in marriage. I never could've imagined.

How awesome for you guys that you have come to this decision together! I remember you blogging about how well he did as a surgery resident, so it's good to know that he has such a nack for it already. It was nice that you have had this extra year (has it been a year?) to figure out for sure what dreams and goals you have individually and together. Anyway, I'm happy for you guys. Good luck on your future!

Thank you for sharing that, Lara. I have a friend who is struggling with moves because of jobs and she needs reassurance. Thank you for this post because I was able to share it with her. It is ok to change minds....it is all about the journey.
