"And it came to pass that they journeyed many days in the wilderness, and they fasted much and aprayed much that the Lord would grant unto them a portion of his Spirit to go with them, and abide with them...  And it came to pass that the Lord did avisit them with his bSpirit, and said unto them: Be ccomforted. And they were comforted."  -Alma 17:9-10

About the last year of our lives have been pretty crazy.  Realizing that we needed a more steady, reliable income, Tyler decided to go back to school and totally switch careers.  After a lot of thought and praying, the Radiology program seemed to be the best option for us.  While there are a lot of places that offer programs, the only one that was looking like it would be realistic for us was the University Hospital program.  Problem - they only accept 8 new students a year.  And right now, that program is what everyone wants to do.  

So, after A LOT of praying and A LOT of fasting from A LOT of people, we were answered this morning.  Tyler got a call from the school to congratulate him on making the program.  I cannot begin to describe the faith building experience this was for me.  The funny thing was that I wasn't fasting and praying for Tyler to get into the program.  I trust that my Heavenly Father knows what will be best for us, so I only wanted the faith to accept whatever that might be.  But isn't it wonderful when you get an answer that just brings so much comfort?  Like He's telling you that you and your happiness and your little life actually matter to Him?  In the eternal scheme of things, I don't know how much of a difference it will make that Tyler got into this program, but to us in this moment, it means the world.  And it is wonderful that He loves us that much to send us that comfort now.

The next two years (starting in July) are going to be ROUGH.  I thought I never saw Tyler now, but I'm about to really know what it's like to never see him.  Except maybe every other Sunday.  Oh, well.  There is a light at the end of the tunnel and that's good enough for me.  HOORAY!!!!!
