see this place:
It’s okay if you don’t know what it is.
or why I’d post a photo of a partially built hospital.
But, it is very important to me.
This is where my husband will be working in just 12 days!
He’s excited about the opportunities he will have at this new hospital, about the new people he will meet. But, the most important part of all of this is that he could actually WALK there. After almost 2 years of commuting almost 180 miles a day (that is about 3.5 – 4 hours of driving each day), Curt will be working in College Station again!
We are all thrilled. The kids are trying to remember what it’s like to have dad around when they’re getting ready for school. And home in time for dinner. And not falling asleep on the couch. I’m trying to remember, too.
I am so thankful: for my husband, who is THE HARDEST WORKER I’ve ever met. A man who is patient and persevering. And the guy who has stopped at numerous car accidents to wait with the injured until the ambulance arrived. Who stood with a stranger and prayed and watched as a car burned on the side of the road. Who prays his Rosary before he gets to lovely Hearne, Texas and inspired this post over at CatholicMom.com. He’s enjoyed his current job in Temple, has met some of the best people in Texas, and done some amazing work. But it’s time to come home. As he said last night on the phone, “I’m coming home. No, really!”
I am thankful for his patron saint, St. Joseph the Worker, for his faithful example and prayers.
I’m not saying it’s been easy. It hasn’t been. But we did it.
The dog days are indeed over. My life will return to normal! WHOOOP!!
and this is my song:
