Today was a good day. Even though there are only 12 or less minutes in this day, I wanted to blog about it before it was over. It started off like any other day. Early, with very little sleep for me. But it seemed like it was a good day. The kids and I played Wii, the little kids almost never get to touch the wii, so they were super excited they actuallly got a turn. Then we played in the playroom, then we played outside. As we had just sat down to eat lunch, Chad called. We hadn't talked all morning which is pretty unusual. We usually at least text something to each other. He asked if I had seen his text which I had not, when I went over to see the phone, I saw the text. He told me they offered him the job. I was so excited, I could hardly stand it. Although this job is in Los Angeles, and we probably won't see him except for the weekends, it is a really good thing. So after 2 years of underemployment, I mean let's not forget he was the culinary supervisor, schedular, and billing specialist for the day-care, he finally has a full-time, good paying job. I can't even begin to tell you how grateful I am that the Lord has blessed us with this right now. The timing is impeccable, (but that is usually how He works). We just last night met with a couple that are buying a house in our neighborhood that want to rent it out as an investment property, they want to rent it to us and we want to rent it, so I think that we will pretty much be able to get it (Thank you Brad!) The house is more rent than what we are paying for right now, so I was really nervous about doing it just based on what I make with the day-care, but now with a Chad's job, that isn't nearly as big of a worry. I am so happy and grateful that things seem to be working out. I know that things could change, but if everything keeps going like it is, then we should have a house to live in and a job to pay for it. I will write about more details soon, but it is now midnight, and I have to get up in 5.45 hours.

What would life be like without friends? I am so grateful for the friends that I have. Between my last post and the post I put on facebook, I can't believe the amazing feeling of love that I have felt from friends and family. To all of you who have said such nice things, or offered words of support, or just ask how things are going. Thank you so much! I am so lucky to have such great friends and family. I saw this quote today and really liked it. "Friends are like walls, sometimes you lean on them, and sometimes it's just enough to know they're there." I am so glad to know that I have friends that I can lean on, but just to know they are there is comforting too. Thank you!!!!
