Tonight I was able to pop that bottle of champagne that has been sitting in my fridge, chilling, waiting for good news.
Tonight, my darling hubby was offered a fantastic job opportunity. In an amazing community. With a beautiful home. And a top-rated, rock-star school district. And it was a generous offer. Plus, it is in a culturally rich area (!!!) with real job possibilities for me. I am dazzled and a little frazzled! Pinch me.
(That sounds like bragging above, and it kinda is. I am just blown away by how something this awesome could land in our laps.)
Part of me wants to yell "neener-neener-neeener" to the stinkers that yanked the rug out from under us. That part of me is 4 years old. But the other part of me is so overwhelmed with thankfulness. Positivity is what got us to this new place. I blocked out a lot of negative influences, focused on my family and kept my chin up. I just knew that we would land on our feet. It is what we do. We are a good family with a lot of love, we laugh a lot and we have each other's backs. It feels like sunshine.
The fact that my dear man was snapped up with such excitement, so quickly, speaks for itself. I am beyond thrilled. There were happy dances, victory dances and more than a few hugs, high-fives and fist-bumps in our home tonight.
I cannot thank my friends (and some new blog-mama friends too!) enough for their incredible support. We had to make some very tough decisions. But this has gone from devastating to an inconvenience to hopeful to celebratory.
So tonight - we celebrate!
