This is just a snapshot of John that I took last night. He had just gotten home from work, and was dirty and sweaty. You can see the weariness in his eyes, and it makes me sad. I want more than anything to be able to give him a wonderful life, and I am so afraid I will not be able to. We have a very tough road ahead of us, with medical school looming in my future. I have tried to tell him it will not be easy. I think he knows as much, but will not let on that he does. As cheesy and corny as it sounds, you can endure anything when you love someone enough. He says when I am finished, he wants to become a professional fisherman. I just hope he can. He will deserve to do nothing but float on a lake somewhere in peace.
