Oh - yes, you read that right. Matt is making real, actual, measurable progress on his dissertation.
I won't attempt to fill in any details because I'm sure to get them wrong. But, I know that he is polishing his 30 some page proposal and should be handing that in soon. Then, the real writing will begin.
This is such a huge accomplishment for Matt.
His new job is so much less stressful and he has energy to put into his reading and writing. He is happier and calmer and focused. I am so proud of him, I think he should get a prize just for getting to this point. :)
Thanks to all who pray for him, he is finding clarity of mind, time and motivation!
(And I think I've gotten him to agree to never dress up as little red riding hood again.)
