Life has become very complicated!

Just when you think things are settling down...
HD's company tells us on Friday, that they are handing out termination letters, but being that he is in the union and works for a major phone company you know the one that says "can you hear me now" they have to first offer us a lateral move.  The move is in a neighboring state but is still hours from where we live.  Hours from where we just buried my Grandpa.  Hours from our friends our church our lives...
So being that HD makes very good money we have to go.  We have always been blessed beyond measure with his jobs and our health care.  We wish we had more time or more of a choice but we have to go.  They are giving us the offer on Nov. 3 and we have 1 week to answer.  From that point I don't know when we will have to report to our new spot.  We had a realtor come this morning to advise us what we need to do to sell quick. 
As much of a shock as this is I am at peace.  God has different plans for us than I knew about.  Pray for us as we are going to be super busy!  We have to paint and trim and we are having new Kitchen floors and counters put in. 
So what I mentioned about moving was only a rumor in the company which came to pass this weekend.  I will keep you all posted!

So sorry to hear this. (although you are moving a little closer to me...jk) What about your mom & grandma? Only God know what the future hold for all of you.
Good luck with working on your house. My mother worked for the same company for 30 years.

Wow, so much going on! I did not realize your hubby worked for a phone company--Mine too, only we are AT&T. We have been in similar positions with the company. I am so sorry you are having to go through all this right now--I will be praying for you! I must admit, however, that if you HAVE to move, a little piece of me wishes you were moving to my neck of the woods--I think we would make great "real life" friends. Keep us posted!

We are THAT Family said...

Oh my goodness! That's a lot of news for one weekend. Wow! It's important in times like these to remember that it doesn't matter where we live or what we have, as long we're together. And I"m so glad your Mom and Grandma will be going with you!

Will you be closer to TBM?

P.S. He loves you.. said...

Glad to hear that it was not a termination letter...but a move! ;)

My hubby is in commercial real estate...and we have had the worst year ever in his 9 years in the business. We literally don't know what will happen next...but I hope to have the calm and peace that you have! Knowing Jesus helps...I just wish I would believe beyond my know?

Good luck moving and painting and packing...oh my!

Mom mentioned one of the possible cities as you know.
If this HAS to happen... I really hope it's the city close to us. Your grandma would be closer to her sisters. Actually closer to us than when you lived in Dayton! For most of my life Dayton was a three hour drive. The other city in WV is 54 minutes. In fact Tony is there now.... shopping.

Growin' with it! said... that's some big news. you know what hm, i have always been so confident at God's timing and plans. even if it stinks that i might have to move away, start over and trust Him with all the details. so i feel your anguish and i pray you have tremendous peace in this new adventure. God is so daggone faithful to us as His kids and I know He is going to bless your sweet family beyond what you can imagine!

Big hugs,

Wow..that is a lot to deal with. Praying for God to open the doors and lead you clearly down the path.
You sound amazingly calm!
Does this bring you closer to Pa?
