3 Years Down & One More To Go!

Gerson finished 3rd yr of medical school today!!

I can’t help it. Since Monday, I’ve been remembering it all… when I opened his acceptance letter to medical school (He asked me to, cause he was working), the move to San Antonio, First year… Second year … and now Third year.

It’s really been an adventurous ride! We’ve had our ups and downs. There have been some months that felt like an eternity, and others that flew by quickly. Regardless, God has been good, even through the challenging months.

Unfortunately,instability has been part of this journey. I don’t know exactly what’s to come, but I want to continue enjoying the present. It’s great seeing the light at the end of the tunnel (from medical school), but I know this transition will soon come to an end. And the next phase will come.

So I’m going to celebrate along with Gerson the end of 3rd year of this challenging transition. It’s still not the end of 4th year,aka GRADUATION DAY, but 3 years is an accomplishment. Before, I just wanted this to be over with because of our battles and struggles. But if anything, even those times had a purpose. They made us stronger as individuals and in our marriage. We learned from those mistakes and moved forward.

I encourage you to enjoy your current phase too! Life is too short to dwell on the bad things or bad times.

Enjoy your spouse and your family today. Enjoy your baby while he/she's little. Enjoy your marriage while it’s new. Enjoy your 30 years with your spouse. Enjoy your teens. Enjoy your singlehood while your single. Enjoy your weeks of dating/courting. Enjoy college. Enjoy your engagement & wedding planning. Enjoy your pregnancy. Enjoy your promotion. ENJOY TODAY!

This week I found a bag full of old pictures and came across the picture below. It was taken about 9 yrs ago.

Gerson and I were in college, just friends not a couple. I had heard that the Dallas Mavericks were playing the Houston Rockets, my team at the time, so we decided to go to the game. My girlfriends and I even wore the Rocket's colors (red, white, and blue) to show support.

I had to laugh when I saw the picture because if you know me now, I'm a hardcore Mavericks fan! I don't know exactly when or how it happened, but I know it had to do with Gerson.

Have you ever noticed how someway or somehow your partner begins to have a huge influence on your life, positive and/or negative. He/she begins to inspire you. They become contagious!

Marriage changed me in many ways. Maybe before I thought it was silly, but now I find it inevitable. It's not that I've become somebody else, but Gerson has had a huge influence on my life.

Can you think of all the things you love and do now thanks to your spouse? I can think of many! And quite frankly, I like who I've become as a married woman.
