One Year Ago...

We started on this crazy journey.

Stephen entered medical school, I entered life as a stay-at-home mom and we started this blog to tell you all about it.

And it's been a good year. A great year. Too many blessings to count.

But here are a few (I know I'll miss something) ...

-Our house NOT selling - a blessing in disguise at the time.

-Time with my children every day in their formative years.

-Wonderfully supportive friends and family.

-Safe travels to and from school for Stephen every day. And him being home by 5:30 most nights.

-Great "study buddies" for him who also have young families.

-A rather significant scholarship for this school year that was pretty unexpected. Praise the Lord! SO proud of you honey!

-Getting involved with MOPS - more on that in a coming post.

-Fabulous family, friend and couple vacations - we all need a good getaway!

-Connecting with lots of wise, creative and fun people through the world of blogs - I had no idea!

-Constant signs and encouragement from the Lord that we're on the right track.

Thank you Jesus for all this and more.

Here's to another great year!


  1. Such abundant blessings! :) Love our Lord ~ for He is SO good!!

  2. Erin, your post gave me goosebumps. It's soooo easy to get caught up in the complaining and hardships of being the spouse of a medical student/resident/doctor. Thanks for reminding me to look at the blessings we have found here in Omaha (we have tons!) and being so positive! I'm so glad we met! :)
