I just wanted to send out a HUGE congratulations to my amazing husband who successfully defended his dissertation today! This is probably the biggest hurdle in getting our Ph.Ds and he did it today! My smiles are so big and my hugs are so tight; I am beaming with joy for him!
And while I’m gushing…I thought I’d share the dedication page from his dissertation. Because it’s out of this world sweet…
“To my wife, who stands by me and edits me in my writing and my life. My life would not just be incomplete, but it would be grey without her. To my parents who raised me to be a man, to follow my dreams, and to never give up. To my brother who inspired me by his own accomplishments and paved the way for my own success. To my sister who showed me what family is through her children and her love. To Allison’s family, my new family, who’s generosity and openness makes me a better person. And to my friends, for sticking by me as life is empty without laughter and tears of which good friends are never in short supply.”
Congratulations Matt, you’re one step closer to being Dr. Davis. You inspire me daily, and I am so proud of you for all your hard work and dedication. Today is your day! I love you so much.
