Grig started school this week! That's been kind of exciting, but it also means that my poor husband has even less time to himself.
Grig had been thinking about applying at some other places a few months ago, but when he prayed about it, he had been told to stay with his current employer for now. However, he felt really directed that he should focus on schooling.
After a very long story and many prayers, we found out that he was supposed to go to the community college here in town and get his welding certificate. That was not the answer we had been expecting, but so far it's working out really well.
It's been well within our price range, and so far, Grig has really been enjoying it. He's getting to learn the basics of welding from an actual teacher, and not just from the guys at work. Hopefully, this means that once he has a couple of years of welding experience at his work and his welding certificate, he will be able to get a better paying job that has more stability and fewer unpaid days off.
We know the Lord has a plan for us, and it is so much better than any plans we might have had for ourselves.
I never would have imagined that we'd be living in our own home with a large yard. It is so great to have people over and have room for everyone. There's more to clean and take care of, but it is SO worth it.
I never would have thought that I'd be so happily married with a wonderful son who is nearly two and a half.
I thought that by the time I was 28 I'd have five or six kids and be married nearly a decade, but I wasn't ready to get married by 18. I needed to experience some things in life before I met my wonderful husband. I'm not disappointed at all. I've met so many wonderful people over the course of my life, and I wouldn't change any part of it.
Life isn't going the way I planned, but it is so much better.
Grig's at class right now, and he's a trooper, because essentially he's doing thirteen hours of welding a couple of days a week. That's a lot of welding. He should be pretty good at it by the time he's finished with this beginning welding class. He has a great eye for detail, and he's careful. He's also becoming faster as he works on it.
I think his employers like him quite a bit. I sure do.
Ain't life grand?
