Simply surviving.....

Getting back into the habit of working full time has been a very rewarding experience. Starting Tuesday, we've gotten up every morning a bit exhausted, but eager to get to work. Our move here was such a HUGE leap of faith, but I feel so grateful each and every morning I get up that we decided to just do it. The jobs that TJ & I planned to work at when we left California are not the jobs that we are working now. During the interview process for those jobs, we had a feeling that the Lord had something greater for us so we sort of swept those jobs aside and went looking. After job hunting, multiple interviews, and many job offers, we now have jobs we genuinely enjoy. I'm working at Allconnect which is basically a mover's servicing company. Anytime someone is moving, they call us and we set up new service or transfer existing services such as phone, cable, and Internet. This week has been nothing but training. I feel exhausted just thinking about all the information I tried to learn this week but I am truly grateful because I feel like this is where I was meant to be. TJ started working at the hospital this week. He is working in the cafeteria and we absolutely love the fact that we don't have to spend money on his lunch.....lol..... He gets free lunch there which is totally AWESOME..... But that's not the best part. Working at the hospital means great benefits and they pay for your school if you want to further your education. TJ & I truly feel blessed because our whole purpose for coming here was to get settled, start a family, and finish school. For the first time since we've been married, I truly believe that we will be able to accomplish those goals. I am so thankful that the Lord has blessed us with such a wonderful opportunity to fulfill our goals. Our experiences within the last month and a half has truly tested our faith but I am happy that the Lord has never left our side. Its been a testament to me that if we truly listen to the Lord and follow his will that we will be blessed. Well, enough of my babbling. Till next time.......
