a good news announcement!!

Ember Grey: Grateful Heart

you all know how hard things have been for me lately.  with my disability leave, my health problems and then getting laid off, i have been feeling like i have been drowning in an ocean that i can't get out of.  i can't seem to reach the surface.  in addition, my sweet, brilliant husband has been trying for months to get a new job where he can actually use his brain and get a real engineer job.  it has been very, very hard in the packer  house the last few months. 

but yesterday, something incredible happened!!! taran got a new job!! a real engineer job that pays exactly what he deserves!! he will be learning so much and using that brilliant brain of his!!! it  is such a blessing!  the Lord is good!!! just when he was told that he wasn't allowed to work overtime anymore, which was what was keeping us afloat financially with my unemployment, he gets this amazing new job that is perfect for him  and that will keep us afloat!! and  i got three calls from companies i had applied to!! things are looking up!! my health problems are getting better, things are getting better, and it is all because of the Lord. the Lord will ALWAYS take care of you, He will ALWAYS provide.  i had faith in Him, we had  faith in Him, and now look what happened!! i am so grateful for this huge blessing and am so proud of my husband!! he deserves this!! the Lord ALWAYS will answer your prayers!! 

and now i want to introduce you to someone who is very, very special in my life.  i text her daily and she has helped me immensely during these past few months of hell.  she has been there for me as i have struggled with my disability leave and health problems, and i can't even count how many times i have called her crying.  do yourself a favor and meet karen from a peek at karen's world.

Tell us a little bit about what we will find on your blog. Life? Recipes? Fitness?  My blog is a little about my life and the things I love, including movies, books, sports, and my friends.

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be? Can it only be one person? Because if it could only be one person then this question is kind of impossible to answer. I mean, obviously I would want Jesus there. But I'd be fascinated to see him sit down at a table with, like, the Dalai Llama and the Buddha and some of those folks, you know? But then I'd also really want Tom Cruise to be there because I have loved him since I was 9. And also my grandparents because I really miss them.

Describe your perfect Saturday: My perfect Saturday is a day when I could wake up without the alarm, have breakfast on a balcony overlooking the ocean. After that, it pretty much wouldn't matter what I did because the day had already started out so great.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Or, what is your favorite place you have traveled to? I really want to see Alaska. It looks so beautiful and vast and amazing. It's a place I've always longed to visit.

What are you going to be for halloween? or what was your favorite halloween costume? Picture of said costume encouraged!! I haven't decided yet! Well, I was going to be a World Series Champion Angels fan, but they ruined that plan...
