A working man...


Congratulations are in order for my cute husband Tom! He got a job last week. After a pretty discouraging series of interviews, he received 3 different job offers in one week! We decided to take a job at JSA architects. It seems like a pretty good fit for him and his strengths, so we are excited. We will have insurance, so I can go to the dentist again! That is probably the best news. This is a picture of Tom on the first day of work. He was being nice letting me take his picture. I made him hold the lunch I made him. I'm such a nerd...you gotta love it though. :) We have been so very blessed this past little while. Even when we didn't have a "real" job, Tom's cousin gave him tons of work at his graphic design firm & he's been blessed with lots of tile jobs and landscape jobs too. My research grant has also been a blessing and has really kept us afloat for the last little while. It reminds me of a quote from President Hinckley.

"It isn’t as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don’t worry. I say that to myself every morning. It will all work out. If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us. … If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers."

It is so true. Everything always works out. I think it is just making ourselves stay positive and hopeful while it isn't working out at the time. We might be moving closer to Tom's job...so start screening your phone calls from us, because we might be calling you for help! :) I will post more often. I love reading all of your blogs! Thank you for all of your support and friendship. Life is good.

Good to hear it, I guess it is going to be hard for Tome to come help me with my projects now though :-(
Also we are planning on going camping in a couple weeks and you guys should come.

Hey thanks for posting on our blog so I could find yours. I am so happy to hear Tom got a job. How fabulous! And, yes, let's hang out some time soon. The clock is ticking and we'll soon be out of here!

Yeah! Congrats Tom! That's so exciting! I love the picture of his first day. We would love for you to move closer to us. Where is his work located? And thanks for posting that quote, I really needed that today. Let's for sure get together next week. We are leaving for Bear Lake tomorrow, so let's plan on something when we get back. Talk to you soon!

Bubba,

Not far from the picture of your first day of kindergarten. Sorry, but I couldn't help notice the resemblance. Congrats to you.
