It's no lie he's had several different jobs during our time together, and to say he's succeeded at each and every one of them would be an understatement. It just seems as if one job led him to another, which has opened the door and led him to another.
He has been at his current job going on 4 1/2 years, which probably feels like 10 years to him. He goes to work every day with a positive attitude and always, always, always puts the firm's and clients' best interest first, just as he does with our family. He works hard and works a lot, but it's all been for one reason - to take care of us. I love and respect him so much for that.
Recently, all of his long hours and hard work have paid off in a big, big way - he was offered a partnership in his firm. Is there a word bigger than proud because I am OVER THE MOON excited for him! It's been a big secret for quite some time, and now that the "cats out of the bag" it's busy season and the baby is almost here so we haven't even had time to celebrate (kinda like when you first find out you're pregnant - you and significant others know, but you don't tell anyone else for weeks, then it's like it really isn't even that big of a deal). I'm sorry, babe.
Chet, I hope you know how truly happy I am for you. You work so hard for our family and rarely get/take the credit you deserve. Our family, the firm, and your clients are so blessed to have you working for our/their team. And what's crazy is I know this isn't it for you, it's just the beginning. I am so, SO PROUD.....not just of your accomplishments, but for the father you are to our kids and the partner you are to me. We love you!
Below is what was sent out in his firm's newsletter.
