Throw your hands in air, say oh-yayer

The past three years or so have been hard. We sold the house we loved and moved across the state. Since then we’ve had to live in places we didn’t want to and take jobs that we didn’t like. We were “past” those places, but forced to still exist in them. James was born in the midst of all this and the one bright and shining reason why I wouldn’t want to just entirely block the past three years out of my life.

And suddenly, the sun is shining. Everything is so bright that it’s like a straight blessing directed at us, showing us that good things come to those who wait, those who pray, those who have faith.

We live in this incredible house that’s already more than that, it’s already our home.

Jeff got a new job. It pays more money, he enjoys it more and he’ll have every weekend off.

I’m still at my job (still waiting on a miracle there) but something even better has happened. I got accepted into the nursing program. One out of 110 accepted out of 1000 that applied.

We have money in the bank. And clothes on our back. And plenty of food in the fridge. And finally, something shiny in the future.

Happy happy joy joy! (Ren and Stimpy throwback.)
