So, I didn't have the greatest weekend, health-wise. But it was a WONDERFUL weekend filled with fun and family and love. So I am really not complaining and I definitely don't feel guilty about it. Moving on...that was then, this is now.
Yesterday was really a banner day for our household. A little bit after lunch, I was offered a new job (that interview I had last week). I was THRILLED to accept the offer...it is $1,000 more per month than I make now (which we BADLY needed) and MUCH better health insurance. I cannot tell you how hard it was for me to not scream for joy when I hit "Send" on my Resignation Letter to my Supervisor and HR. I felt so free.
Then, I got home and opened up a letter from the University to find that my husband has received $1,000 scholarship. AWESOME!
And, as if that weren't enough...he then received a voicemail and it was The Hilton wanting to interview him for a job. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? I am gonna go ahead and say that yesterday was a GOOD DAY. And I really can't help but thank God...we could never have imagined such blessing! It has been SO difficult for us for SO long...quite honestly, we were beginning to just lose hope. What a great and wonderful God we serve, who periodically decides to just POUR our blessings on our lives. I just can't understand that kind of love.
This morning, I woke up at 6am and my 8 yr old and I went on a walk on the Trail. I don't know why this idea never occurred to me before, but it's a perfect time in the day to walk (before the stifling heat rolls in) and it's a great time of connecting for my daughter and I (she's always complaining that I don't spend time alone with her). Plus, we can work out together! Bonus. She and I both have issues with weight piling on pretty quickly...and since she quit gymnastics last year, I can see her filling out a bit and it worries me. I mean, I NEVER EVER say anything to her...but I do worry.
So, all in all, it's like I have a new lease on life. Wow. Big week. Big week!
