so proud.


just. , originally uploaded by olives on a monday.

Today my sweet husband came home and casually mentioned he got a promotion and a raise!
WHA?!
Needless to say, I'm SO proud of him. He works VERY hard, and I'm so happy to have him as my husband.
I'm also VERY thankful. I know many have lost jobs or have had to take pay cuts. We have truly been blessed, and I hope we can use this extra income to be able to help others who may need it.
We also {happily} are staying put. Last week Justin was at a Leadership conference and they asked him to take a position in Maryland, and after prayerful consideration we decided to stay where we were for now. It would be SO HARD to leave our church and {amazing} friends right now.
I LOVE you Just...and I'm SO proud and thankful for you!

Congratulations on the promotion & raise!

So you're not moving to MD? (Disappointed sigh.) Too bad. Although it sounds to me you made a wise decision. Maybe in a few more years . . . ;)
