Hubby was laid off from his teaching job in May. He decided that he might need to go back to school and change careers. He was accepted to St. Edward's University, but there was a student-loan snafu, so he continued looking for work. We lost count on how many resume's he sent. He sent 32 in one day alone. The school district was supposed to rehire laid off teachers, but we really don't think they did. Zero of his friends on the RIF (reduction in force, schools LOVE acronyms) list have been rehired.
All of that is in the past. He was hired at The School That Works http://sjdchs.org/ as a part-time technology teacher, but after the first day, he came home with a full-time job as a Theology teacher and he will be getting a Master's Degree in Theology instead of Business.
We all have a overwhelming sense of peace and gratitude. A big hug and thank you to our Jesus, Mary, Joseph, all our Saints in heaven and our friend and family prayer warriors who have stormed heaven with prayers for months and months.
