It Turned Out Nice

We got a call that the headstone was finished, so we went and took a look yesterday. It was awfully cold, muddy, and wet, but cleaned the headstone off the best we could and it looks so nice. Nate's schedule has been great these past few weeks and we've been able to spend many mornings as a family and it's absolutely wonderful. Especially at Christmastime. I can't believe it is December. I pulled a diaper coupon out of my pocket and saw that the expiration was 11/30/2009. I thought to myself, oh I have plenty of time. Then I realized it's already the 8th!!! In one week we will find out where Nate has matched for his Family Medicine residency. Very, very exciting! But you might have to pry me away from Columbus...or at least kicking and screaming.

SO beautiful, Jessica. Love it. I can't wait to see it in person. Also, I completely relate to how you are feeling about leaving Columbus. I do not want to leave either!

That did turn out really nice! Hope you guys get to move closer to Utah can't wait to hear where you'll be next!

That is a lovely headstone! And I would hope that I wouldn't have to drag you away from Ohio if it meant that you were ONLY 6 HOURS away from me! Woohoo! Nonetheless, I am SO glad that you've loved Ohio so much.

The headstone is beautiful, and I am also glad that you've had such a great time living in Columbus. I'm sure you will keep these great friends you've made forever. What a blessing! But I too am rooting for wherever is closest to Utah! I guess that means Las Vegas!

I love the headstone, jess!

and you find out in a week!? wow! so exciting. I think we may end up staying in Ohio after med school- and I'm pretty happy about it :) Ohio has definitely won me over.

Why are all these people wanting you to move closer to Utah!? Seriously what is wrong with all of them! Just let it be known you won't be the only one kicking and screaming. I can seriously make quite a scene. Where do you think Julia gets it from? The master, that's where.

that is so jansen and natalie under the tree!! perfect choice, especially when you had a limited option. When I go and visit noah after you leave, that head stone is going to make me miss you and your family so, so much!!

It really did turn out great! and you are always welcome to come to Omaha...not too far from Columbus, well at least closer than Utah is.

The headstone is beautiful. It feels peaceful and happy to me.

Now, regarding your residency. You know what the right choice should be. No bad feelings towards your Ohio family, because I am indeed grateful they have taken such good care of you...but you know, it's time for you to return to the Lolly's...or at least close enough for a few weekends together during the year!

How fun to have Nate home during the mornings. I love relaxed days when Daddy is home. Sometimes it feels like a holiday in and of itself.

The headstone is just precious.

I found it funny reading that you don't want to leave Columbus because I remember talking with you when you were first going to move and you were sooo not into the idea. How life changes us huh? It helps us grow, meet new people, travel and enjoy other states. I'm glad to hear that you are happy where you are at.

I stumbled onto your blog tonight (someone new commented on my blog, I visited hers and she had your link...). When I saw this post I went back and searched out little Noah's story. I am an angel mama too--I lost my first three babies at 15, 13, and 11 weeks gestation. Although I have since been able to have two term babies, I have come to FIRMLY believe that it is important to tell our stories of loss. There are so many mothers who have been here, and who *will* be here, and we need each other! I have written about these things several times--perhaps one day when your pain is not quite so fresh you'd like to visit.

That's beautiful. What a strong, sweet, wonderful statement "I am a Child of God". He is. If you ever want to talk--you know we could make it a Magic Jack day.
