1st Day of School

Today starts a journey for Ed that was placed on his heart years and years ago.
To become a counselor.
He talked about going back to school well before Sam was born.
Today he is taking the first step of a desire God seared inside of him so many years ago.
It has been quite the journey getting to today. Years of finding himself. Times of hardship. Times of growth. Today he was ready.
I am so excited for him that after over a decade (and then some), he will be learning about what he loves. That he is starting something that we have talked about for years. I know his heart is going to be stretched. Our marriage is going to be stretched. We are going to learn a lot of new things over the next three years. There are going to be sacrifices. A lot of sacrifices. But in the end, I know it will be worth it. It already has been worth it. To know he's going to be able to do what he absolutely loves makes it all worth it.
We are exactly where God wants us.
We are ready for the ride.
