After just over 6 months, I am so so SO excited that I can tell you…NICK GOT A JOB IN WILKES! Hallelujah!
These past 6 months have been some of the most trying times of my life. Being a parent to two sweet boys with the other parent being gone the majority of the time is no joke. Neither is being married to someone that you adore but that doesn’t actually really live with you most of the time.
Nick has applied and interviewed for several jobs, and the rejection that we both felt when he didn’t get them was miserable. The last time he found out that he didn’t get a job he had interviewed for, I will never forget. When he told me, I was originally fine. I had prepared myself for the worst. And then, my sweet, sweet sister in law, Chelsea, called to see how I was, and I lost. It. All. I was confused and hurt and scared and sad and I felt like I just couldn’t keep doing this. Why had God led us to this house and this town, basically placing it all in our hands, if it meant we couldn’t all be together? I KNEW he had a plan for us and that one day I could look back on all of this and see the good, but in that moment, I couldn’t see it at all. Thank God for Chelsea. She gave me hope that day. She helped me to feel ok, and she helped me to see that it was going to be fine, that we would get through it. Thank the good Lord that my brother married her.
I am still not so sure about what I learned from this…except that I need my husband around all the time. And how important my support system is! But I’m sure that it will be clear to me one day!
I’m so proud of my hubs. He has always worked so hard to support our family, and none of that ever changed. I’m so so thankful for his persistence and determination over these past 6 months. Golly, I love him. And no, I’m not one bit sorry for being a total sap.
So, we made it, friends! The end is in sight! One week from Thursday is my sweet husband’s last day of work at Lowes in Greensboro. He will never have to go back. He can stop having to spend 4 nights a week away from us. And y’all, we are all so stinking excited to be together every day again!
