First of all, thanks for all of the encouraging comments.
I will continue to update you as we move forward in this "find a new job" process. Other than the obvious prayer of quickly finding a new job, we are also asking God for wisdom and direction. To be more specific, I am mostly begging God for wisdom and direction.
I am in Scottsboro trying to be a help with Abigail and her siblings. In the mean time Scott is in Crossville with our two kiddos, so that they can visit with Mae Mae and Pop, and so that my hands are free so that I am able to be a help rather than a burden.
It's been a treat, though, because at the end of the day while mom stays at Ann's to help through the night and in the early morning hours, I return to mom's house, sans kids, where I am able to enjoy an evening free of responsibility and a full night's sleep with no little people waking me up early in the morning. My crew will return tomorrow.
So, with this evening free time, I am about to begin reading The Help, which I am super excited about.
I also went by Unclaimed Baggage today--Scottsboro's claim to fame--where I bought Same Kind of Different as Me and Cynthia Heald's Becoming a Woman of Excellence. Any time that I happen to be in a car by myself driving through Scottsboro (which is rare), I feel 17 again. Will I eternally feel 17 in my hometown? Maybe so. Everywhere I turn this town is haunted with memories.
Well, I am off to read, alone, in a quiet house. This is my Heaven.
