My mind is made up and Happy Birthday

Okay well a while back I wrote about changing positions at work. Very shortly after that I was informed that the amount of money I had been told would be the difference in the two salaries was WRONG! Long story short, the amount I was told was pretty much way off. So after prayer, discussion, and thinking long and hard I have made my decision. I am staying on as Secretary. I was looking forward to LESS STRESS! But I didn't feel like I could turn down that much money. (Not that it's a lot of money total.) Believe me it's NOT! But originally I was told my check would only go down about 35 dollars a pay check. I could definitely have handled that. But that is not the case. So anyway, I will continue to do what I have been doing for the last several years. I know that God is in control and that I can do all things through Him, so that is the plan.
This weekend we got to go see Avery. She is doing a little better. This is while she was enjoying some delicious sweet potatoes. She is still coughing unfortunately, but was more back to herself. As long as she is coughing she has to continue the breathing treatments. Pray that she will be well soon. Even though she has had to endure all this sickness she smiled and was sweet while we were there. She helped her mommy open her birthday presents. We celebrated Casey's birthday this weekend but actually it is this Wednesday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SWEET BABY GIRL! I really cannot believe she is 24 years old! Man twenty four years! Wow I remember that day 24 years ago, which certainly does not seem that long ago. I had been in labor for a good bit of the day. We had played cards and such at my moms house. When the pains started getting stronger I went home and showered and did my hair and makeup, LOL and off to the hospital. No point in the hair and makeup thing, cause she wasn't born until 9:00 am the next morning. No more makeup left, and the hair, well... I remember being so glad all that pain stuff was over, but they took her away so quickly. It was much of the day later when they finally brought her to us. Todd had been out in the hall lurking, waiting and watching for them to bring her. I had buzzed and buzzed asking "When are they bringing her?" But finally they did and she was so completely beautiful. We were so blessed to have her, and we still are 24 years later.

Aww...thanks mom...that was so sweet! Well I guess that other job just wasn't meant to be. At least you have a great boss! Everything is always for a reason, and as we have witnessed MANY times before God is always in control, always one step ahead.

I must admit that I am glad you are staying in your present position. I really like seeing you there when I have to come to school. I do think you are there for a reason...I am glad our kids have you there.

Now about the 24 year old! I can relate. My first born will soon turn 20. WOW...it is so hard to believe...I know he's married and that he has a 3 year old...I am used to all those facts, but my baby boy was born 20 years ago...it makes me sound old, but I sure don't feel old.

I am enjoying your blog and I appreciate yours and Casey's comments on mine. I know people view it all the time...I have a site meter and people that I did think knew it existed tell me. I just wish more would comment.

Okay, have a good day...I didn't mean to get so long-winded. LOL
