If you asked Gavin whether 20 years ago he would ever wear a uniform like this, ever, he probably would have laughed. Now we've been active duty military for over 3 years...we've seen the wonderful and not so wonderful aspects...and certainly have gained an overwhelming appreciation for military personnel who make this country what it is today. I look at our friends who are paying ultimate sacrifices of time and life to serve our free country.
So today was the day the decisions from the Navy came out. We feel VERY fortunate that Gavin was offered a position (1 0f only 3) at the Naval Hospital San Diego in their Ophthalmology Residency. We were all pleasantly surprised this morning...no one more so than Gav who dreams of being "home" and surfing his home breaks...but we certainly have not made any final decisions. It is yet another blessing of opportunity that we can pray about. We have so many life changes going on right now....but all of them are long-awaited blessings...remember those rewards after the trial of our faith...these are those fruits=))
