Now that we are home I still feel a little sick about our situation, but Eric is in really good spirits. He's determined to make the best of this and I love him for it! We still feel awful about not knowing this was coming. We are feeling the weight of his electricians that depended on Eric as their boss to have a job, and to be warned if something was going to be changing. We wish we could have given them the proper warning that we have appreciated having.
We also feel free (obviously). A few months ago we were ready to build a home! We were pre approved and Eric had talked to the builder but I just had a feeling that we weren't ready. We have been praying real hard to figure out what direction we needed to be going in life, because we've felt like we've been in limbo the whole time we've lived here, almost 3 years! It's no secret that I had a hard time adjusting and really resented Eric's job for taking him away from me so much (60+ hour work weeks were the norm) There is more behind the story, more than I could ever share with the world wide web, more than anyone needs to know... but let's just say that the company didn't have the best interest of their employees in mind. So maybe this is God's way of answering our prayers... We are so dang stubborn, maybe this is the only way we would accept an opportunity that we would have turned down before? ha ha! I don't know! I'm feeling completely lost at the moment but I am doing my very best to put it all in God's hands and trust that we will be okay in the end. But more importantly, I'm trying real hard to find peace in everything we've been through since we moved here and to let go of all my anger (I have a lot of it, unfortunately) because they don't deserve an ounce of my energy. We are grateful for the tremendous resume builder Eric received from being the electrical superintendent, but it is time to move on now (in the electrical field). Thank heavens I have my little family to help me through it, Mia has kept us grounded through this ordeal, she is such an angel! Not to mention the support of our family and friends... we love you all!
I know there are much harder trials and hardships that we could be experiencing, but this still feels so big right now. Prayers would be so appreciated!
Reminding myself everyday that they are reason my world goes 'round!
