Oh Happy Day!!!!

The call finally came this evening.  We were sitting around the dinner table enjoying homemade pizza.  The cell phone rang with an unfamiliar number.  Michael answered it with his standard business voice, "Hi, this is Mike."  He jumped up from the table quickly and his smile stretched from one end to the other.  He was trying to contain his excitement while staying professional with the person on the phone.  It was TVA with a start date for him to go to work. Let me just say this has been a long drawn out process and we are thrilled that it is almost completed. 

The next few weeks will be filled with much excitement and many things to get accomplished.  We have to find a new house that will accept all of our kids and the English Mastiff.  We have to make the deal on the sell of our  house and pack up our entire farm.  It looks like we will be renting for the first year that we move so we can get acquainted with the new area.  Did I mention that I am so thankful for this job?

grace and peace,

Yay! Been praying for you sweet friend.

Sounds like "packing" is next on the agenda. Wish I could come pack a few boxes with you.
