Very, Very Good News!









My husband lost his job on Thursday of last week. He knew the company was struggling and had already started sending out resumes. Last Wednesday, the day before he was laid off, he had a phone interview with a recruiter, on Friday he had another phone interview, and on Wednesday of this week he had a face to face interview. Today he got a call saying that he had been chosen for the job! If all goes according to plan, he should start on this new job February 2!

We are so very thankful that this didn't drag out for months. So many people are without jobs right now, and it seems that each day the news reports of even more layoffs and business closing. We feel very, very blessed.

Thank you all for your prayers, good thoughts and well wishes for us. They meant so much to me!

Robin I'm just thrilled for you both! I do so hope the economy will start to turn around soon for those who are not as fortunate.

Hopefully the two of you will find a small way to celebrate : )

Indeed you are blessed, Robin. Each and every 'chicken in my nest', including 'The Rooster', hangs on a perilous roost (each heart beat synchronized with the automotive world, living and breathing on news of each day). Rejoice and be glad! I live in faith of a beautiful tomorrow ...

Hurray! Oh Robin, this is such good news and I am so happy for you and your family. Losing a job is always worrying but in times like this it is very worrying indeed. So glad your hubby is starting his new job next month. I wish him good luck in his new job and hope it's a job he will enjoy too.

Have a great weekend my dear!

Hope you have a wonderful day! Love your blog and your photos! You are so gifted!
