Today is the day...

Today is the marks the day Mark becomes a Dr. This is a day he has been working toward for over 4 years. I could not be more proud of my husband! He has truly put everything he has in these years spent at Logan. Mark isn't a man who does anything halfway. He takes pride in EVERYTHING he does! I envy his passion for things he loves-it's one of the many amazing qualities I love about him. He has shed blood, sweat, and even some tears while in attendance.

When Mark started Logan College of Chiropractic we had no idea what the future would hold for us. As a couple we had "heard" about the journey others had taken. If there is one thing I have learned these past few years is no persons journey is the same. Many cross the same finish line but the path to get there isn't the same for everyone. This is not to say one path is better or worse than the other...just NOT the same. I feel being in school while married is not something many couples experience. It's usually 1. finish school then 2. get married. Well, this wasn't the case for us. We experienced marriage while we were BOTH in undergrad. After graduation I went to work and Mark began "professional school." While in school Mark carried a load more than any man should ever carry in a lifetime.

He did it so well! He was a not only a husband through these years but he became a dad to 3 children. He lost a son. This adventure is a part of our lives we will never "get over" or "move on" from. He carried a job in addition to a 40+ school week. He stayed up late to study because he wanted to eat dinner and help put the kids to bed first. He loves his school.  He is proud of what he does. He is the BEST!

I look forward to "looking back" and sharing these times with our children.  I am so excited and nervous for today. I think I am more anxious about it then him. He is so humble...I am proud to call him my husband. Way to go Mr. You did are officially Dr. Mark Schmitz!!!
