Great News!

Saturday, November 09, 2013

First off let me apologize for not being very active in the Spark Community these last few weeks. I have some great news and things will be changing very rapidly for my family.

On Thursday we received news that my husband is approved for VA disability. We have been waiting for a little over a year and a half to find out. This is wonderful news and such a relief as now we won't have to worry about Albert's medical bills. Albert was in the Navy, he was a hospital corpsman and his last deployment was in Afghanistan for a little over a year. He saw things and did things that he hasn't recovered from and I'm not sure he ever will. He has PTSD. It took him years to get help because he thought he could deal with it on his own. But now we can finally get him the help he needs and deserves so this is a wonderful blessing!

Last week Friday I applied for a promotion not knowing if I would get it due to all the issues I've had at work and with my health but yesterday I interviewed and found out I got it! I signed my acceptance letter and will be starting my new position November 18th. I will be a supervisor in charge of 18 people! I live in San Antonio and the job is in Austin so I will have to commute for a while but the hubby and I will be looking into buying a house up in Austin.

Lots of good things and blessings have been bestowed upon us! Thank God! For with God all things are possible.
