The Case of The Missing Husband

Has anyone seen this man? He has disappeared in his studies and I can't seem to find him. Lately he has been spending so much time at school and with his study group that I was about to put out a missing person report on him.
One thing I have learned over the past few months is that having a spouse who is working on a medical degree equals not seeing much of them at all. When my husband decided to get his degree in physical therapy I did not realize how much time and energy it would take. And it seems that as finals are quickly approaching I am seeing less and less of him.
I am so proud of him for sticking with it and following through with his goal of becoming a physical therapist. I know that he is going to make a fantastic therapist one day. But the road there has not been an easy one. I am jealous of the time that he spends studying his class material. And I feel selfish wishing that he would spend time with me rather than doing his homework. I am also jealous of the fact that right now his classmates see him more than I do. But I am slowly beginning to realize that this is just a sacrifice that we are both going to have to make in order to have a better future for our family. I just wish that the journey to get there was not so hard. But I know it will be worth it in the end.
Until then I will just be patient and know that the end is in sight.
