God does answer...

Well, here it has been weeks again since a post...thought it was time to update about what is going on in my little piece of the world.

My beautiful, oldest daughter graduated in May from Blue Ridge Community College with her Vet Tech Certification degree.  We are all so proud of her for her 3 years of hard work all the while working full time along with taking classes part time to accomplish this.  The last several months of school were especially hard since she was pregnant and had morning sickness for the whole pregnancy.

Then with her LVT in hand she knew that it was time to find a job closer to home. You see she lives across the state from us and we don't get to visit as much as we would like and when we do it is only for a day or two.  She delivered her son in August and those visits are even more important now and needed.  Babies grow and change so fast and it is hard to try to raise a child with no other family around to help out as needed.

Now on to the point of this post.  I have been praying for months that God would bless my daughter and her little family, bring them many blessings according to his will.  I asked that he help her make her dream of moving closer to us possible by providing a job opening in her field of LVT, one in large animal not small.  There are only a dozen of so equine vet clinics in our state so there are never very many openings for the job she wanted.  Well God does hear our prayers and he answers in his time.

Two weeks after having her son, a job opening was listed for a LVT position at an equine vet hospital, not just any equine vet hospital but the one I use for my horses.  This clinic is less than 10 minutes from my house!  Well she applied for the job, came in for two in house interviews and was offered the job!  Not only that, last week her husband was offered a transfer of his job with the company he works for even though there were no openings listed!  Praise God!  He is so generous and loving!

So as of November 25th, all my living children and their families will all be located within a 45 minute drive of us!  And guess what!  This grandma will be babysitting her cute little grandson while his parents work!

Can you tell I'm excited!  There's more to the story but I will save it for my next post.
