Good Things to Come

A lot has happened & changed for our family in the last couple of days.  It's amazing how everything has fallen into place and not how we would've thought or planned, but it's good & I finally feel at peace.

A week ago, we thought we were going to get kicked-out of our rental house.  A family that we go to church with found out how much our monthly rent is & decided our house was the best deal & that it was best for their family to live in our house.  Even though we went over to there house a couple of times and asked them to not pursue our home, they continued.  Without going into more detail, it all worked-out in our favor and we are staying for the time being.

Hubby has been looking for work for a couple months now.  Nothing has panned out.  We've looked at several employment positions as well as practices that are for sale.  We got pretty serious about a practice in Payson, AZ.  We pretty much found a house we wanted to buy, were qualified for financing through the bank to buy the practice, and this past weekend I think we were able to take a step back and realize that this was a great job, but probably not for us.  We weren't surprised at all yesterday when the broker called us to tell us that the current owner has decided to go with a different buyer ... personally, I felt relieved.  I think if the owner would've chosen us, we would've eventually backed-out of the deal or asked for so many changes in the contract that the owner wouldn't have been happy with us.  And just so we wouldn't be freaking out today about money & work, another opportunity opened up for us this past weekend that we could be OK with.  Hubby was offered a job within the same company, but at a different office ... his favorite office.  The office that's been wanting him & that's he's really wanted to work at pretty much since the beginning. 

I still don't really know what is in store for my family or where we were supposed to end-up.  I still dream of living on the East Coast, but I just don't know if that's in the cards for us.  I don't know if living in the East Valley of the Phoenix area for the rest of our lives is in the cards for us either.  But for now, we are here & things are good.

I've watched this video many times the past few weeks & I wanted to share it with you.  I think we all have things in our lives that we are trying to work through. We can have hope that there is something better in store for us.

Pin It!
