Life lately has been moving along at a pace that really seems frantic to say the least! Mom will be leaving tomorrow for the west coast to apply for a teaching position with several colleges.  I am hoping and praying that the Lord provides her with work.  Since dad has been gone; mom has been all over the place with her emotions.  At times I have wanted to just retreat from it all but I can't....who else would be there~  So in the end although I will miss her and I know she will miss us it would be a very good thing.  She has always enjoyed teaching and her students always love her and her teaching style.  She is going to be staying with a missionary couple in their guest house.  She'll have company when she wants and space when she needs it.  We will be pet sitting while she is away and I will be tending to dad's garden.  His garden is looking beautiful with the flowers blooming.  I have been on the mend at home.  God is good and continues to meet our every need. Tom is doing very well at his job~ his co-worker and bosses all like him.  He has always been a people person.  I was forced to resign because as a new employee I only had so much leave...I must say I have had a struggle with feeling like a failure but I keep reminding myself that God is in control.  I left on good terms; so who knows what might happen.  For now I am trying to be content in knowing that my husband, children and home are being well taken care of~I continue to pray for the kids as there have been so many different transitions but I am seeing God work in them all.  Mandy will be officially graduated in  June...where did all the time go?  Austin and Gabby will be studying through the summer with my help.  I am hoping to get away with the girls next week to visit a dear friend who will be taking Amanda's senior pictures.  Can't wait!  It will be our first road trip together in over a year.  So many changes these last several months but God continues his faithfulness to me.

So glad you've posted, I've been thinking of you and your family, and hoping and praying all was well in your home.

I'll be praying your mom gets the job that's perfect for her.

Answered prayers on Tom's job...YEA!
It sounds like your plate is full enough without you working. You have to take care of yourself and get enough rest.....
Have a great trip!
