Tender Mercies

After a longer than expected, but greatly appreciated, hiatus from work, Rob has officially started up again. We have been blessed by receiving one tender mercy after another from the Lord. Rob quit work at the CAO Company LED division the day I went in to be induced, but he left with a brighter light at the end of the tunnel. After searching for a more rewarding occupation for six months he received a call, an interview, and eventually a position working for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as a project manager in the media department. Ahhh…what a welcomed relief. He walked off to the Church office building on the 22nd with an extra spring in his step . They were more than accommodating with his “paternity leave”, especially since he hadn’t officially started yet. Fortunately for us, and our bank account, they acted as if he had already started for insurance purposes. This was a huge burden of worry taken from our backs. It allowed him to stay home with the baby and me for three weeks! That assistance turned out to be more needed than initially expected since I had to have that blessed c-section. Another unforeseen blessing was that we were still living at my parents home while waiting for our house that we had purchased in February to be available (more on that later), that meant another two hands and a willing heart to help me out after Rob went back to work. Thank you Rob, Mom, and everyone who prayed for us, loves us, and continues to support us. Sawyer and I could not have done this without you!
