2:32 am

2:32 am

It’s 2:11 am.

Some might say that I’m crazy—doing everything that I do.

I agree.

But I’m crazy in the best way possible.

Crazy in that I am completely and totally in the middle of God’s will—without regret.

I remember complaining when I would be studying at 2 am in college.
Complaining about how hard it was…about how much time I didn’t have.

And I could probably do that now—with some actual legitimacy.

But, instead….

I sit here at 2:13 am…

Studying things that are making me the physician I’m called to be…

With a roof over my head…

Clean water to take my vitamins with…

Surrounded by piles of clean laundry…

My amazing daughter sound asleep in the next room…

My wonderful husband crashed out next to me…

I know that the path we have chosen is “crazy”.

Trust me. We know better than you think you do.

But what better way to spend life…

Than being right where the Grace is…

Right where I want to be.

No matter how difficult, or sleep-deprived, or emotionally taxing the journey can be sometimes…

How blessed am I to be right here at 2:16 am?

2 am studying

    • And without all of your support, we would be wrecks. Thanks for all you do to “hold our hands up”, so to speak.

    Lovely! And, yes, you all are crazy, but in a very very GOOD way! You are blessed and you are a blessing!

    • Why thank you! It’s always nice to hear! Keeps the motivation flowing as much as it possibly can once my beloved OB section is gone…Haha

    • You have always been a very sincere person, actually. So it really does mean a lot. Just glad that I get to walk this journey- and glad that I have such wonderful support doing it. 🙂 Even in the form of random candy letters during finals….
