Still Makin It

Well, it's been a month since Dan's lay off. I said in an earlier post that the first few days were the loneliest...I was wrong. I think when going through what we are going through, after a few weeks, you find out who your true friends are.

All things considered, we are doing pretty good. God has taken care of our every need this past month and even provided a little extra to take a family trip to Edward's Orchard yesterday (they really did a nice job rebuilding after the tornado last January). It was nice to get out and kinda forget about our situation for a few hours. The kids had a good time and it was nice to be able to treat them to some fresh doughnuts. YUM!

If you think of it (or even right now) please pray for Dan especially tomorrow. He has testing with a nearby police department in the morning. As far as work for him goes, we haven't heard anything from any applications he has filled out. It's been very hard to stay positive and not think that this is going to last forever...being overtired, stressed out, and PMSy doesn't help either. :-)

1 things to add:
