In 24 hours we will know where we are going for residency.  It doesn't seem real.  We've been waiting for this day for so long, and now it is almost here.  It's strange that we've matched.  It's already done - the information is out there somewhere - we just don't have it yet.  I don't feel as anxious as I thought I would feel - in fact I'd say I feel pretty calm.  This is not because I know what that letter is going to say tomorrow - I don't.  What I do know is that whatever it says is the right place for us right now.  I KNOW THAT.  I know that there is a right place for us.  A couple of months ago, I wasn't so sure.  So, today I am grateful for answers to prayers.  I am grateful for personal revelation.  I am grateful for the scriptures and how they can be likened to our lives today.  And I am grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who knows me and my family and has a hand in every aspect of our lives.  

I also have to say right now (even though Paul hates this) that I am so grateful for Paul.  I am so proud of him and so impressed by all he has accomplished over the last 4 years.  He has worked so hard for our family.  More importantly, he hasn't complained.  He always has a positive outlook on life and remembers to count our blessings and be grateful, even when times are hard.  He is a better person than me and I am lucky to have him as my husband, friend, partner, companion, and father of my children.  Once again...I couldn't be happier

I love you honey...and congratulations!

Aaaaa! That's so exciting that you'll know so soon, I can't wait to hear! And I absolutely know there is a right place for your little family too and I'm so excited for you guys and this next step in life. And even though Paul hates it, it is so true! You definitely got a good man, Summer :) But I have to say that Paul is equally as lucky! Congrats on all of your hard work Paul :)

I am so excited for all of you. I know that you will be where you should be and that is indeed a comforting feeling. So I am sure Rochester has wonderful things awaiting for you - new friends, expereiences, and opportunities that were meant for you. Congratulations!!! How exciting. I am now trying to figure out the best way to make the travel there the most feasible - so I can do it often.:) I am so proud of your accomplishments! This will be wonderful for you both!
