Good news!

The evening of December 18th, Dwight received a call to let him know that the company he had been working for as a contractor had decided to let him go. That's the way things go with contracting, but it was overwhelming getting that nurse the weekend before Christmas.

Due to all that was going on in our lives, the holidays, moving and cancer treatments, we really didn't get started on his job search until December 27th. I was especially nervous because we are acutely aware of the condition of the job market. It's tough right now! We know lots of good candidates who have been out of work for a while. But, we pushed forward full force. We lost a couple of days due to the New Year's holiday and due to treatments.

But the search is over.

Yesterday afternoon Dwight accepted an employment offer with a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, one of the “Big 5” consulting firms. It is a great opportunity and sounds like something he will really enjoy. He will be able to keep his hands in technology, but also do some new things as well. Although he will travel some, he will be home most of the time.

Once again, we have seen the Lord’s hand in our lives and are thankful for His blessings.

Thank you for all your prayers, love and support!

PS Only ONE more treatment! Whewhoo!
