After reading Rachel's last post and contemplating her experiences over the past 8 years, I was reminded of the "wild ride" she's had as a result of our marriage. For some random reason, a song by Willie Nelson popped into my head - "Momma's, don't let your babies grew up to be cowboys." I then mused that maybe someone should write a song (we have a couple of friends in Raleigh who could probably do it) along the lines of "Momma's, don't let your babies marry graduate students!"
I do have a lot to thank Gerald and Kay (Rachel's parents) for, and certainly have even more to thank Rachel for! At any rate, prayerfully this "wild ride" will be over soon!
