Happy, Happy!

I want to say thank you to everyone who was praying for us/thinking about us/sending good vibes our way as we waited to hear back about Mike's job interview. He got the job, and we are THRILLED!

When Mike got laid off back in April, he started teaching himself computer/web programming and web development. I admit that I would get a bit impatient at times and say things like, "Maybe you should just apply somewhere just to at least HAVE a job" not really appreciating that he was taking the time to learn something that he really enjoyed and would like to do as a career. Well his perseverance paid off and the perfect job came around and he was ready for it.

Before interviewing for this job Mike was offered another position with his old company and we were tempted to take it just to have the security of a consistent paycheck. However we both felt uneasy about taking the job for a few different reasons. After lots of thinking and praying and some time at the temple (I am so glad we live to close to the temple) Mike turned down the job.

With the arrival of our baby so close at hand this news about Mike being hired is such a relief, and I'll admit I burst into tears of gratitude when Mike got the phone call this morning. We are so grateful for prayer and of our Father in Heaven being mindful of us, as well as the peace that we've had knowing that even if Mike did not get this job everything would be okay. Again thanks to everyone who was thinking of us and lending us support.

yay! congratulations! for you guys!
And I'm so sorry that I didn't make it to your shower :( I had a ton of stuff going on, but I was gonna still try to make it (what was I thinking, I always try to squeeze too much stuff in). I have a gift - I'll give (or send it) to your mom.

Big blessing! I'm so glad Mike found a job that he'll enjoy doing. And I'm really excited to see you this next week. I fly there tomorrow.

PS Sharon told me she spilled the beans! Can't wait to talk with you (in person). Love you!

Yay! Glad he'll finally be out of your hair! Just kidding. Once again, it was so great to see you guys. I guess this job will keep you in SF a while now-- we'll have to come again. Oh, and if you ever get the urge to come to the great state of Utah, well hopefully we won't still be here but you're welcome anytime :)
