The Ugly Duckling

Or Leo the late bloomer or whatever children's story is a metaphor for our life as of late. Dr. J and I are both just overwhelmed with God's grace right now. We have just spent so many years reminding ourselves that the Lord will take care of us and there is a larger plan. And so we have just forged ahead trusting and praying.

Dr. J got tenure today. I'm so proud of him and want him to take time to appreciate the achievement. Which is going to be challenging with all the other things that have worked out for us lately. All of which are wonderful blessings - they just happened arrived in kind of a scary order. Right now, things are really looking up!!

Congrats Dr. J!!!

Congratulations to Dr. J! I know it was a long road and an unbelievable amount of work to get to this point. So happy all that hard work paid off. And happy semi-first Mother's Day to you!

we know that feeling but it is so thrilling when you look back and see God's hand in a plan that there is NO way you could have done on your own.
