Stephenson Family Ties The Barn Burnt Down
And Now I See The Moon
All my life I thought that the story was over
when the hero and heroine were safely engaged-
after all, what's good enough for Jane Austen 
ought to be good enough for anyone.  But its a 
lie.  The story is about to begin, and everyday
will be a new piece of the plot.

It was just a year ago that we Stephenson had the great joy and pleasure of planning a wedding.
Clark and Jenna had found one another on the campus of BYU, and had decided to take on one anothers gifts and foibles for better or for worse.  Jenna's exuberance  is contagious.  Clark's patience and goodness are a gift.
Its been a tumultuous year...for them, and for most of us.
Im remembering that 1st babies are tough...and as is often the case, so can the first months of marriage be also.
They have worked hard, have studied hard, have tested well, and have applied to many medical schools (at GREAT expense I may add)
Well today is the day ---- they received great news!!!!!  They both received letters of acceptance to the medical school of their choice!!  It looks like come August they will be heading to Kansas City to start school!!
These two are so full of promise on so many levels...
But today all I want to do is to  CELEBRATE with them!!!
But I live in Logan.
It aint happening.
Someday soon we will find an opportunity to do so!!!

What a beautiful, but oh so true way, to describe true love:)
