Eleven days shy...

... of one year between the day John was laid off on September 13th last year, and the day HE STARTS HIS NEW JOB on September 2nd of this year!

There is a lot of uncertainty ahead, as JJ and I will only see John on the weekends until the house sells and we move 150 miles to where he will be working. But I will take this uncertainty above the one we've been living in for the past year.

And I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have been there for us throughout this craziness. Your prayers, positive thoughts, kind words, and thoughtful actions have been what has made this ordeal bearable. Truly, we have been blessed by both the kindness of friends and of strangers.

Thank you!

Congratulations, I'm so happy and relieved for you guys, but I have to say I'm sad for us, it won't be quite the same as knowing you are just across town.
Good luck with the transition phase, if you need extra help w/ Little Man you know where to find us.

There are no words to describe how happy I am for you guys. Unless you use "a lot" or "extremely" or "abundantly" or "a super duper amount" or "extraordinarily" or "hugely" or "lots and lots" or "fantasmically" or "greatly." But even those aren't quite right.

Way to go, John!! We'll keep the prayers goin' through the process. We wish you all the happiness in the world.

As for me, I'm just glad blog addresses don't change with a move. I don't deal well with change AT ALL.

Wow. Big change. But thank goodness a job came along. So many people are hurting financially right now. It's getting bad.
