Hello again, dear friend


Just as I was starting to get discouraged, worried that we would be out of work for a long time, the idea came to me to write about what I have accomplished since being here in the NW.

But before I sat down to write the spirit lifting post, I got a job! Not just any job, a very similar job to the one I said goodbye to in CA. Working with a new-ish hospice, developing systems and processes.  They’ve just switched to the database that I’ve been using for almost 5 years.
I submitted my resume at 9am on Tuesday, got a call back at 11:30 the same day, had an interview at 11:00 on Wednesday, and was hired on the spot! Friday (yesterday) was my first day at work.
I must say I am so relieved. Many, many folks up here have been searching for work for months upon months. I feel so fortunate to have friends praying for our success and to have a friend who sent me the craigslist posting that morning.  Heartfelt thanks to all.
More to come. I just wanted to check in and update you, imaginary reader.  I have been busy since we landed, volunteering, crafting, building relationships with family and exploring our new home.  Several posts worth, I’m sure. 
Blessed be!
