School Daze

Wil has been going to school NON-STOP for the past year and a half; I'm not exaggerating. My boy has been working full-time and carrying a heavy course load for a REALLY long time now. 

I've never seen him so focused and dedicated as he's been with his school stuff. His days are long and his weekends are cut short by the need to study. I miss him when he's at school and would much rather be playing in the city during the weekend than staying home to watch Wil hit the books, but it's okay. I know he feels the same. 

Of course getting a bachelor's degree is something he wants to do for himself; something that will grow his already healthy self-esteem. But if you ask him why he's going back to school, he'll probably give you a different answer. 

My man is thinking of the future...of our family. He is putting in all this hard work to ensure that we'll be comfortable and provided for, for years to come. Yes, I miss him, but when I'm feeling lonely while he's in class or bored while he's studying, I think of the reasons behind the sacrifice and I move past the thought. 

My Love Cub is the most selfless man I know. Before he makes any decision, he thinks about how it will affect the little life we've made together. I really am so incredibly proud of him. 

Today, he's heading into, what should be, his very last summer session of his undergraduate career (I can't even remember what it was like to have him free and available from June to August). Class doesn't start until 6:00 pm, but I miss him already. I'll end up spending my evening ironing his clothes for the week and making him a lovely dinner. It's the least I can do to show him how much I appreciate what he's doing for our little family.

Aww... thanks babe. It is really difficult and I greatly appreciate your support. You have gone above and beyond for me. At the end, it'll pay off. :-)
