Bill has taken a job and has started training this week. We are very excited but scared. He has accepted two jobs in the past 6 months and both have fell through for different reasons. The first one wanted him to move to Texas. At this point in our lives, neither one of us felt that was the right move. The other told him he was going to start on a certain date, they paid for his drug test. We thought it was a sure thing until about 5 days before his start date, he got a postcard in the mail saying "Thank you for your application but, at this time, we have no current openings." But don't worry they are keeping his resume on file.
Through all of this his biggest fear was letting our family down. He has always taken care of us and was starting to feel like a failure. In no way did he let us down. With all that we have been through, I realize that so many things in life come and go. We choose how we are going to respond to the trials of this life. We could have let this destroy our marriage but we chose to hold on to what is important. I can't say it has been easy but I know God won't give us more than we can handle. We are definitely not the same people we were 6 months ago. Even though I would like to believe the storms are over, I know this storm has prepared us for the next one. I believe we will weather that one, too.
