An Update and some Experts

We've had our ups and downs this week. A 2nd interview that was fairly bursting with "buy signals" -- I think the word Mr. H used for the interviewer was 'slobbering', LOL -- well, it didn't work out. They went with someone else.  (We know better than to count chickens before they hatch, but we were all so ready to be done with worry and skimping and stress!)  Another opportunity fizzled when the company who was advertising for a contractor objected to Mr. H having some contract work on his resume. Huh? Go figure.

On the other hand, we have been enjoying gorgeous Spring days -- the sun and warmth have finally decided to stay, and we've been outside a lot, soaking up some vitamin D. We have a loving family fretting over us, keeping us in their prayers and sending help when they can. We have a lovely neighborhood with good friends that are also our neighbors. Mr. H is still working his short-term contract (thankful for that). We're all relatively healthy and safe, sheltered and fed. Life is good.


Here are two little people I know that are a great example of 'joy in the journey' to me: my nephews. They GET it. They're experts. They take great joy in their journey and give a lot to those around them. Here they are in action. Proof.

Homemade ice cream!

♥ Look at those faces. If that ain't joy in the journey, I don't know what is!! ♥

Bummer about the job. Something will come though, I just know it. Don't you wish you could just be a kid again and be care free? We didn't know how good we had it when we were little. :)

I heard that. Ice cream solved anything. That and a hug and a kiss from mom. :-)

Oh Wendy! I'm so sorry about the job. :( Rats! I know how that is. Michael had someone call HIM asking him to come interview. He went in and we never heard anything back. :(

Your nephews are absolutely adorable though. Snuggle them, tickle them and just eat them up! Nothing helps cure the blues like children's laughter!
