Not what we wanted

Well the news I was hoping to share with everyone was that Brian got the Sales Rep position with the company he works for in the Kinston area, which meant that we would be headed home...aka Greenville, NC. We where both so excited and he actually had the position until the final day of the interview process when we learned the company's HR department wanted another guy. We both cried, but have realized that Greenville is not where we are suppose to go at this time. I also had a job offer on the table at the school I coach Volleyball at, but also learned on the same day Brian did, that I wasn't the number one candidate. Came in very close at number 2, but just wasn't the person they wanted. More tears where shed, not because we didn't get the positions, but were hoping something good would come our way in 2010. Its been a pretty rough year, and we continue to get punched with bad news from all angles in our lives. However, we are both very strong individuals and we will continue to keep pressing forward in hopes that whats meant to happen will. We have to keep believing that something good is coming our way...... God we still continue to put it all in your hands!

My quotes I look to for guidance in times of adversity......

"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go threw it, or work around it. " ~~ Michael Jordan



  1. Saying, "it'll happen" is the ultimate cliche and just not what you want to hear in times like this. However, I know that in time, everything God has in store for you guys will be set into motion. It already is in motion - you/we just don't see it yet. I still have days when I sit and say, "God...are you there? What are you doing with (insert event/need here)?" As much as I question, I do trust that He's still working....even when I can't begin to understand His reasoning behind everything. Hang in there... Thinking of you guys.

    I saw your comment about my house. haha Yes...I think I could sell it before our realtor could. I feel the exact same way you do about the whole thing!

  2. Sorry things didn't go as you guys hoped. I'm sure something better is in store! Keep your head up :)
