Remember the first time you had to speak in front of the class?
How about your first date?
Or the first day on the very first job?
Today I am feeling some of those butterfly in the stomach emotions.
But not for me.
Mr. Diamond starts a new job today. After 5 months of being together almost every single day we are now geographically separated. He’s in Texas. I’m in Iowa. It’s a good thing. Work is a very good thing. A new job is really a very good thing.
But I have to be honest—-the separation thing—not such a good thing. We have done it before. We have made it work. We have done what we needed to do. And we will this time.
I am grateful for great opportunities. I am grateful for a husband who has the drive and the integrity to put 150% into a new job. I am grateful for new places to explore. I am grateful for everyone who has supported us with prayers and good wishes.
My husband is in one word–amazing. He has always supported me in all of my endeavors and continues to be my biggest cheerleader–especially when it comes to this blog. He supports me in all ways.
Now it is my turn to support him. From afar at times but always. If you think about it today please send some prayers or good wishes his way—-first days are always nerve wracking even for the most self confident and self assured folks.
I am so proud of him. He is an amazing man. He is the real deal.
