Mysterious ways

So the place next door for Carl to work didn't pan out. They were offering about half what he makes now and no chance of overtime. But here's the thing...I didn't feel disappointed at all! That's a big deal for me :) I feel at peace with the fact that there is a plan for us and we're pretty much just along for the ride! I am really impressed that Carl even agreed to go over there and talk to the guy. He really enjoys his job at the mine and feels he is finally providing for his family the way he should be. I can see he is torn, he doesn't want to like working up there because he wants to be with his family but in the end it's the job he's sticking with. Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers. I really felt your support. Even though the outcome wasn't what I thought I wanted I actually feel really good about it.

In 30 days of nothing news, we have a financial advisor coming to our house to meet with us tomorrow!! He is a very trusted friend, of a very trusted friend of mine. I'm really excited to finally learn how to be a grown up with money!! I still have this underlying fear that he's going to get here and laugh in my face before I even pour his coffee, buy hey, what can I say, at least I didn't cancel!

In picture news, I can't find my dummy camera cord!!! I know ya'll are dying to get your hicks family fix, but keep your shirts on if I can't find it by tomorrow I'll borrow a friends. See how I said borrow a friends, not buy a new one! I'm learning....

In birthday news, my birthday is now over and I will post all about it tomorrow ;)

Love you guys!!

believeing in that everything happens for a reason is a great attituted to have. Not always easy when things don't go the way you wanted, but it is great to have. Good luck with your advisor, and yay to you for making this HUGE step.

It's hard to have that faith but since you do it can give you such a great peace of mind. I know sometimes I just have to step back and know that God is in charge! Happy Late Birthday!

Can't wait for the Hicks fix! Don't worry, I'll keep my shirt on! You're hilarious!!!

What a fab attitude to have. Good luck with the advisor -- I know exactly how you feel about having him laugh at you. I had the same fear. You will feel so much better after you meet, I know I did!!

It sure is hard having your hubby away (mine used to contract) but if it's the right thing, than it's for the best!
Is it alright if I add you to my blogroll? If not, please just leave a comment.
