How's the move coming along? Funny you asked.
When my husband's company said there was a relocation benefit, we figured we move ourselves and then submit receipts to get reimbursed for some of the costs. We thought that idea was great, as no one had ever offered that to him before. I made reservations for equipment and travel, etc. etc. I started packing little by little and cleaning the corners when they were empty. I was operating on that assumption when....
My husband suddenly called and said, "They're moving us." As in they send a moving company that will pack up everything and haul it and we just drive ourselves to our new place. Un-be-lievable.
So, we'll be on the road this Thanksgiving Day. Not exactly a traditional way to spend the holiday, but, that's okay.
I'm frankly overwhelmed. We were so grateful when he got the job after much prayer and anxiety-though-trying-our-best-to-have-faith-that-things-will-work-out. We have been greatly blessed and I can't thank my Heavenly Father enough. I don't feel I deserve it. But my mother always said it's not polite to not accept a gift; you sincerely say, "Thank you".
I've sure got a lot to pay forward, but that'll be the fun part.
