So I went MIA again. Sorry. Life took some surprising turns and I'm still trying to catch my breath. For starters, Frank got a job. He got a job with a commercial painting company. It kind of sucked and the money wasn't great but it was work. Two weeks later he got another job offer with a commercial construction company and it was more money, more hours and so obviously, we jumped at it. Two weeks in to that job, they promoted him to foreman!
I am seriously giddy.
Then at my job, I got promoted to semi-full time. More hours, more income. My bosses are just such amazing guys. When we hit one of our lowest points, they took the time to talk to me and see what they could do to help. When we were desperate for help, they helped me. I never knew that bosses could be like this. I honestly almost cry when I think about all of this because for the first time in what has literally been YEARS, I have hope for us. I feel like we are finally getting on the right track so that we can have a little security and a life where we can breathe and maybe not struggle quite so much.
We laugh a little more around here. We are actually looking forward to the weeks to come rather than dreading what's going to happen and how we are going to survive it. Now when I take a deep breath, I can release it with ease; it's not shaky and heavy. I thank God EVERY DAY for these blessings.
Hope is a beautiful thing...
