ok wow look at me 2 post in one day…but this isn’t a good post this is a post that i need to vent and why not write (since this might be a new thing for me).
right at 5 (our time) andy’s phone rang and it was little rock. this was one of those phone calls that he had to wait on (he got an e-mail to expect the call) so all day we have both been praying like crazy and our minds have been going crazy with what happens next. well, the call came and it wasn’t good news. i mean i guess in a way it was good news because that means that we can fully decorate for Christmas (we are still deciding if we are going to do a big tree or a little tree) that makes me happy. it also makes me happy that we won’t be leaving and trying to move over the holiday. it makes me happy that maybe we can find something a little closer to our families. it makes me happy that we got to fly together and see part of the states that we haven’t seen together. and it makes me happy that we were able to go through this together with little bickering and a lot of love and support. it makes me sad and mad also. it makes me sad because we have to stay in our current situation which doesn’t make us feel warm and fuzzy. it makes me sad because we don’t get to buy a new house right away and we don’t get to “move” together (with a moving truck and everything). it makes me sad because i know that the church was really cool and the people seemed really nice while we were there. it makes me mad that they said no. it makes me mad because i know that andy could have done a great job and that he was qualified to do the job. it makes me mad that we flew all the way there and gave up a weekend (my mom’s birthday weekend) to go there and spend time apart instead of taking an “us” vacation. it makes me mad because we have to start back at square one. it makes me mad because i feel like we were led on. but when i sit back and think about it we did pray that if it wasn’t right that it wouldn’t work. and we prayed that it would be clear if we were meant to be there and obviously we weren’t. with the rollarcoaster of emotions that we are both feeling right now we know that we are in this together and that there are possibilities out there and that the right thing will happen. we know that we love each other very much no matter what happens. andy is my hero and i am constantly amazed with his strength and love and passion in all that he does in life. we will close this door and not dwell on it and not let it ruin our holiday season or dictate who we become. we will let it shape us and we will move on. in my honest humble opinion little rock is missing out (but we still pray that they find the right fit for them).
