It's been quite the week, in a good way.
On Monday, my sister's fiancé successfully defended his Master's thesis. He's officially going to be graduating this summer and starting work as an engineer in September.
Upon moving back to Ohio a (long) year ago, my husband realized that his Georgia counseling license wouldn't transfer as easily as expected. Long story short, he took the 3 extra classes that Ohio required this past year and now is finally license-eligible. On Tuesday, he was offered his ideal job at a small, local, private college working in their counseling center as a...counselor! It all kind of worked out somehow, because the job he got now was pretty much made for him.
I was in the car with my mom on the way to yoga when he called to tell me he was offered the job. I was so excited and thought I would have a hard time concentrating through the yoga class. But, the group intention that the instructor set for our practice was simply "gratitude". I couldn't have picked it better myself. That was actually something I could focus on.
My dad and I have also started training to walk the Columbus half-marathon in October. My amazing husband will be running the full marathon that day. My dad and I did our first training walk over the weekend and so far so good.
Sometimes things just fall into place. Show "gratitude" when they do, for life's little blessings.
Recipe from my husband's family
