The Waiting Game

For those of you who don't know my husband has not had a full time job since he graduated law school. We have not been living the life we envisioned when everyone promised fortune, because you know, all lawyers are rich... hrrmmpph
Not that I'm complaining. I believe the last 3... and a half years were a learning time for us. We reconnected with our faith, we rearranged our priorities and found out that those "things" we thought we wanted didn't mean much. We also moved close to both of our sets of parents and believe it or not, we love it! We visit every Sunday, and sometimes do dinner in between. When we need someone to watch the Eskimo there is always at least one hand in the air, sometimes several followed by a fistfight.... ok we aren't that violent, but it is wonderful to have everyone so close.
It amazes me that these things have become so important for me when only 3 years ago I was ready to get out and go anywhere else. God has slowed us down, and taught us not only patience, but also what is really important, and you know what? The last 3 years have been a lot of fun!
But... it seems the wait might be over the Mr has had a few promising interviews lately, and might just have landed a full time, get up and put on your business casual, benefits for your family, paid on a regular schedule job!! Mr is super excited and I am as well!
So how bout it, anyone else go through a time of learning and happier for it? It seems that God might just have a plan!
