The Best News of the Week!

Paul is proving (yet again) that one of his super powers is being a super hard worker.

Two days ago he got several emails telling him he needed to apply for a law related job.

He immediately sent in his resume.  The next day we got an email asking to schedule an interview and today he had the interview.

He starts work on Monday.

The job is a legal aid type job, working with the elderly, and the position is set to last twelve weeks.  But it's a job in the legal field and right now that is really great news, since as many of those of you who've searched for law-related jobs at the present or in the recent past likely know, these days law jobs don't grow on trees.

However, because it is only for three months we were worried about Paul giving up the other two jobs since, here in Michigan any job is a hot commodity and it took many, many applications to get the two jobs that he has.

So he talked to his other employers and he has now worked his schedules out so he'll be working two days a week at Job #1, two days a week at Job #2 and five days a week at Job #3, with the schedules all aligning nicely to work out.

And I'm going to be reminding myself that it's only for three months and that hopefully a permanent position will come out of this temporary one.

That is my very, very happy mid week news update!

And here's a little bit of cuteness from James:


  1. that is begging to be made into a meme :)

  2. Wonderful news! Congrats to Paul.


  3. YIPPEEEEEEEEEE! How great is this! I will redouble my prayers. I have been praying to St. Anthony (of Padua) for him (when I remember. My bad) ever since he graduated. Oh, I hope, I hope, I hope this will lead to full time employment in the legal field.
    Sometimes God makes our way a little rough and rocky, only to bless us exceedingly later for our faith and trust in Him.
    Cam, thanks for letting us know. This is great news.
    God bless. ~ Bonnie

    1. Thank you! I'm praying for the exact same thing (and thank you for the prayers!)!

  4. That's great! I hope it turns into a permanent position. Jobs are like that where I live too - so hard to come by.

  5. Yay!!! I'm so excited for what this means for your sweet family! I'll be praying for endurance for Paul & you during this busy season.

  6. That's wonderful news!!!!!! And what an adorable picture! And you better watermark it before someone does steal it for a meme!

  7. That's great! Congratulations!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
