He took the first job offer... it was several states away, so we packed up and left for China. We came home as a new family, to a new home, in a new state - where we knew no one. It was hard, it was stressful, it was lonely, it was scary... we made it through.
Four months later my husband was offered a job back in the same area we had just moved from. We went back. It was another move, more stress and more change for Rylee. But we made it through.
One year later, my husband lost his job again... It was hard, it was stressful and it was time to give up on the auto industry. We did not want to move again. I started working two jobs and I was fortunate to be able to do both from home. We also started our own business and one or both of us have worked 6 to 7 days a week for the past two years. We made it through.
And we have thrived as a family.
These past few days, we have finally made it to the point where we can take our first non-working - the four of us only - family trip!
The place was beautiful...
The weather was perfect!
The sunsets were amazing!
The children were fun and smiling and beautiful!
The beach was breathtaking!
The trip was perfect!
And I am so thankful!
