You all know by now that Joey graduated last Friday from the police academy. You also know by now that I am the proudest wife on the planet.
I think this is my favorite picture from the whole experience:
This picture totally and completely describes how proud I am. I love Joey so much, and to see him work so hard to accomplish a dream that he's had for quite a while was just overwhelming.
For the last 8 months, he has studied so hard, endured hell-ish physical training, and sacrificed personal desires to get to this point. To see all of this pay off with the highest honor - to see him be awarded the Top Cadet in his class - was more than I could imagine. I knew he could (would) do it!
Joey, I'm so proud of you. You are my rock, my hero, my love, and my best friend. I'll continue to pray for you constantly - not only for your safety (of course!) but that God would grant you all the desires of your heart. I know you're living your dream and I could not be more happy to be living it with you.
Psalm 1211 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
