Usually, a Saturday night, unless it's the rare occasion that I have plans, involves me at home relaxing alone while Pete works a late night at his job. But tonight it was filled with friends, family, food and fun as we finally got around to celebrating Pete's graduation from nursing school and earning his state licence!
The kids (all ten of them!) ran around and had a great time together, and the grown ups had a wonderful time socializing! And it was great to see Pete, who is so often cast in the supporting role, be the center of attention and the reason we were all gathered there!
I know that his frustration at not having found a job yet is mounting, but despite all of that, he worked very, very hard to get through school and to pass his boards, and I know without a doubt there is something for him and that it will come his way soon.
In the meantime, I just know how lucky I am to have him!
