"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1
Even if you don't believe in God, that excerpt from The Bible is kind of awesome. Thank you guys for every comment and email that you sent me. I realized this morning how ZOMGZ! my post actually was and waking up this morning to read what you guys had said made things better. Seriously.
The truth of the matter is that my husband is unhappy in his current job. Really unhappy. And I'm trying to channel the idea of his unhappiness into creating the inertia he needs to find a job that is not soul-sucking and dreadful for him. I want him to be happy because when he's happy, I'm happy. And quite simply, because he deserves it – he's paid his proverbial dues and should have an opportunity at joy.
We are very fortunate that they're giving us a pretty good window for him to look for something and enabling him to do so by taking hours or days off from work to search. I'm not foolish enough to think this is going to be an easy task – but we are highly motivated, full of faith and optimistic. Remind me that I wrote that next week, okay?
A lot of the details are still fuzzy, but we do have some time. It's not an Up In The Air (great movie by the way that we just watched the other day – thanks, universe!) situation and I am so immensely thankful for that. I'm not altogether sure how much more I'll write about it after today, maybe a little or maybe ad infinitum, it really remains to be seen. I just wanted to say thank you. Your words and kindness are exactly what I needed this morning and I love you for it.
