Dr. in the House! Wedding in 30 days!

candi grad for cmk

Doctor of Pharmacy – Candace Mae Koenig. My beautiful niece. Oh yeah, I am SO proud of her. Proud of her for going through the blood, sweat, and tears of 7 years of undergrad and graduate school at OSU; proud of her for never giving up; proud of her for being a wonderful sister to her wonderful little sister – their bond is beyond amazing; proud of her for pressing on and keeping focus when outside struggles tried to bring her down; proud of her for leaning on her God and her faith.

Here’s to you my amazing niece. You know I love you. Always. No matter what!

Next on the family agenda – Dan and Katelyn’s wedding. Exactly 30 days from today as a matter of fact. Dan is in the process of moving into their newly acquired apartment. Katelyn will move in after the wedding. His room is getting bare here. The apartment is filling up there. What a blessing to see my son in this exciting new stage of his life. Of course there are normal motherhood pangs of realizing a stage of my motherhood is complete, but how selfish of me if I let those consume me. Instead I am loving seeing the excitement in both Dan and Katelyn’s eyes. I love seeing Dan care for, respect and cherish Katelyn. It makes my heart so happy and thankful. God is so good.

Happy Thursday! I hope this finds you happy and enjoying life today. I know I am! 🙂
