Today is going to be wonderful. Or awful. Or maybe both, I'm not sure.
At 12:00 today, Christopher is going to open an envelope, and inside that envelope will be the name of the hospital that has hired him for his first job as a doctor. The name of our new city.
So what city is on the inside of the envelope?
We. Have. No. Idea.
As much as we've spent this week talking and thinking and guessing, we just don't know.
But here's what I do know.
I know that today is a huge accomplishment. It is an honor. One that has been four years (more, really!) in the making.
I know that Chris is the most hardworking person I know, and today is the day he gets to see that pay off.
I know that when I met him 8 years ago, he talked about wanting to be a surgeon, and he hasn't stopped talking about it since. Today is truly a dream come true for him.
I know that for me, the worst case scenario today is that the envelope holds the name of a city where I don't want to live. And even in that scenario, I get to move there with the love of my life, our precious little babe, and our fox. We'll all start an adventure somewhere new where Chris will be working a job he absolutely loves. If that's the worst that could happen, then man, my life is good.
As we head off to this intense NFL draft of medicine, I'm so anxious, so excited, so nervous, so ready, and a million other emotions. But my heart is bursting with pride.
I'm so proud of Chris. I'm so proud that he's getting to see his dream come true today.
I'm so proud of us. I'm proud that we've pressed through the hard times (because med school is hard) and lived every moment of the good times. I'm so proud that we've stuck together through it all.
I can't believe that today is here. That we finally made it today.
We made it.
So, yeah. Today is going to be wonderful.
Congratulations on making it this far. I can't wait to spend all my years laughing with you, no matter where that may be.
Home is wherever I'm with you. xo
