We've been hit with a bit of a blow today. We met with Tim's Navy recruiter today for lunch and at the very beginning of the meeting, she handed us this fiscal year's financial notes regarding the offers they have available for the year. We were absolutely shocked to see that they no longer offer the loan repayment for pharmacists. While we were not joining the Navy solely for financial reasons, it is not feasible to continue on the same path without the loan repayment option. At this time, we have no idea what we are going to do, where we are going to go, or why God has closed this door. Obviously, God is not going to leave us here to figure it out on our own, but we do feel a bit lost at this time. We both have decided to sit back and pray for direction, without any predisposed ideas of what we want to do. Please join us in praying while we search for what we are going to be doing in 7 months. Both of our sets of parents are being incredibly supportive and caring right now. They know how excited we were to have a decision made about what we were going to do and about serving in the Navy, so they know we completely devastated about this change of events. I will keep everyone updated as decisions are made, but we aren't planning on any being made for a little while.
