10 Final Days of Thankfulness

Today, I had intended to post my 10 Final Days of Thankfulness.  While we won't quit being thankful when November is over, it will end the post for a "Month of Thankfulness" that many are doing either on Facebook or their blogs, or wherever else they might be making their post.  It's been a great month, full of building projects, family trips, and other assorted excitement.  We are transitioning into the Christmas season.  Which is another time of year that reminds me just how blessed I am.  I had alot of thoughts from big ones like our health to little ones like Gary's recliner that I steal borrow from him daily.
Instead, I'm going to share a prayer request with you.  Gary was laid off last Tuesday.  We didn't want to share the news with anyone until after Thanksgiving.  We didn't want to ruin anyone else's holiday.  It's hard to comprehend why they would move us up here, and then dump us after 4 months.  Especially seeing the increase in sales and the relationships he was building with the customers.  It's hard to believe that we are going through this yet again, a process I hoped to never relive to be completely honest.
In some ways it's scarier than ever to be 18 hours from our Church, and 8 hours from our family.  To have such changes again when everything seemed to be so bright, is frustrating.  On the other hand, it's not so bad this time.  Sad as it is to say, we are getting to be pros at living on very little, and combing through jobs.  On Tuesday we were in contact with two guys that had been interviewing Gary and then wanted to hire him after he had already accepted this job.  Gary also spoke with Mr. Ron our wonderful recruiter (who truly has been a Godsend).  He already has some applications put in and interviews lined up.  Please continue to keep us in your prayers that Gary might find a good position in his career field (and more quickly this time than the last), an that we would be given discernment as we try to make decisions between now and then.
