Congrats to Dave
Dave received his acceptance to UMSL Graduate School yesterday. He wants to pursue a masters degree in business. I guess he will start in the fall. I am so excited for him and hope it is what he expects. He has been depressed about job prospects and so I hope this helps to alleviate that despair. We went out to celebrate at Krieger's. I just want him to know how proud I am of him. Things have been kind of difficult for him and I hope this somehow gives him a new sense of freedom or awakening. He is not happy at his current job and so I hope this allows him to realize that he is not stuck there. He can and will move on to bigger and better things. He is such a great guy, husband and father. I just wish he knew this. I don’t know how to give him more confidence in himself or help him gain this confidence. He has had some tough blows and it has caused him to really doubt himself. I just think those things happened because it wasn’t the direction that God wanted him to go. Unfortunately, it seems he took it to mean he was less of a person or a man. He has done a great job supporting us, so that I can stay home with Kaitlynn. He currently works at least 6 days (if not 7) per week. He gives up almost every Saturday to work overtime. I feel terribly guilty that he has to work all the time. I realize I am working too (taking care of Kaitlynn and selling Avon), but I am rewarded by getting to spend all my time with our beautiful little girl.
