Merry Christmas to us!

On Christmas Day this year, on the other side of the world, Brent got the present that he wanted most. He's hoped and dreamed of becoming an Oral Surgeon and just got his acceptance to the OMFS Residency Program. I got the present that I wanted most, too: Brent is blissfully happy.

I am so grateful to be married to this amazing man. He sets goals and doesn't hold back. If someone tells him he can't do something, he just becomes more determined to succeed. He's had many obstacles in his academic life, but he just keeps moving forward. He doesn't just believe, he constantly demonstrates faith. He prays, listens, and takes action. I don't think I'll ever know why I have been so blessed, but I am grateful every day for his love and example in my life. I hope that I can be just like him when I grow up (if that ever happens).

I'm also excited that we'll most likely be in Washington for the next 5 1/2 years. We will be within driving distance of our families AND finally stay somewhere long enough to be able buy our very own house! Yippie!!!

Dear Seasoned Snow Driver,

Please accept my deepest apologies for slowing your drive. I understand that it must be VERY frustrating to be stuck behind a car traveling at 15 MPH, rather than 25.

But traveling at such a snail's pace is surely preferable to having my oversized vehicle rammed into your beautiful car.

Am I right?

Because that is the alternative.
