The Most Wonderful News!

Cue the music....light the fireworks...
Prayer works!
I know, you did not need me to remind you of that fact did you?
Still, I have this crazy desire to run up on the roof and scream....PRAYER WORKS!
Thank you God!!
What a way to begin the new year....
The man called at 3PM this afternoon and said....drum roll please....
....and I quote....
"We won the contract, Bill's on board.
We need him back in Dayton in 2 weeks!"
I think all the blood rushed to my head after that.
I had thought about so many scenarios over
the last 10 months, imagined how Bill would tell me he
finally had a local job. But gee. I never imagined that *I* would
be the one to call HIM! He and Grace were running an
errand and I called him on his cell phone.
Talk about a surprise! His new boss had gone in on New Year's
Day to discover the messages about the contract...decided
he better see if Bill was still home or back in VA.
He was so sweet to me...I kept thanking him and he kept
telling me how happy he was that Bill was going to be part of their team.
I want to publically thank our God, all my family &
friends who have prayed so hard &
my husband who has the patience of Job and
kept telling me it would happen!
Of course he still has to leave tomorrow and has a
12 hour drive ahead of him but hey. He goes knowing
that he will be home for good in just 2 weeks.
