I get to wear the cutest scrubs. . .

In the last three years I truly learned the meaning of praising God even in the darkest of times. I can honestly say that I thank God for my sickness. Being sick has brought me so much closer to Him.

So, I'm at a point that I can shout for joy again at His awesomeness. God blessed me with the first job I applied for. I am now a receptionist at Bradley Animal Hospital in Lawrence. I couldn't be happier there. This job is surreal - I am completely blissed out on what I'm doing.

Even greater than this job though is the fact that with this job Michael was able to quit the evil fast food job. He was getting more and more strung out on the fact that he was working two full jobs. Last Thursday I got the call that I got the job, and I immediately called him and told him he could quit. He did just that, and immediately we both felt like we could breathe.

Also, last Wednesday Michael received Employee of the Month at his Home Depot DC. How exciting!?! This is only going to help him as he continues to work hard at moving up in the company. There is a position in Massachusetts that he's applying for, and in my deepest place of my heart I want this job SO bad! God, seriously, whatever is in your plans, is in your plans. As we said when the position in Ohio was open - whatever happens, happens.

I realize this is a little oxymoronish to what I've been writing about loving my new job. But Michael's job come first, and if he has the opportunity to move up in the company that's ultimately what's best. I really feel in my heart that I'm ready to move away, and my gut says that if this happens then this will be the place to go.

Tomorrow will be my fourth day of working at the hospital, and I'm loving it. It's intense, and it's going to take a while to learn everything but I'm confident that I will succeed.

I found out that my boss, Carey, has adopted three children from Colombia. My mind can't seem to wrap itself around the awesomeness of that act. It has long been on my heart that adopting or fostering children may be in future. I admire her selflessness and loving act of doing this.

Father God, thank You for blessing me with this job and providing a pathway for Michael to be able to relax. Also, please continue to guide Michael as he works hard at Home Depot, and if he's meant to move up in the company please guide him in doing so. Please guide Carey and her family as they embark on this journey of adding to their family.
