Last night the bf and I were talking about his firefighting goal, and all of the challenges that come along with it. The one I try not to think of the most is how becoming a firefighter will add so many risks to his life. I just pray that we’ll never have to get have to get disability insurance quotes for him due to a work accident. But the good news is he studies all the time, and he is determined to be the best he can be. Not only will this make him more employable, but it will help keep him safe.
Still, I can’t help but wish sometimes that he had chosen a career path that was more subdued, or safer. Then again, if he did that, he wouldn’t be my boy. He would never be happy with a simple office job or anything easy. He would only be truly happy at something that challenges him every day. I know he’s going to be an excellent firefighter, despite the dangers. And I know that having a boyfriend (and maybe oneday husband) that is happy with his career choice will be worth every bit of stress and worry it took to get him there. I know the road to his career won’t be easy, but I’ll be there for him every step of the way.
