You know how they say that bad things happen in 3's. I do not know where that came from and despite what I am about to share with you... I do not believe it.
Last week was quite difficult for us. It started out with our 4 month post treatment appointment ... where we found out that Don has yet again, relapsed. He is still positive for Hepatitis C. Despite the news, Don went straight back to work after finding out.. I went to the park and walked around and prayed. On my way to the doctors office that morning I told the Lord that no matter what, I trusted Him. My life has been in His hands since my conception and nothing had changed. As I walked through the park, I could feel Him with me.
A few days later we found out that our son-on-law Daren, is going to be deployed for a 6 month tour. Our daughter Emily was understandable ... heartbroken... but she is a strong woman and we will make the best of it, She is going to bring the Grand children down here this summer and we will plan lots of fun things!
and a few days after that, Don called me and told me he was laid off of work... a job he had only had about 6 weeks...
With every incident I made a point to give it all to God. I slept well. I did not find myself in fits of worry or frowning... and after the initial shock - all was calm. I have had this overwhelming feeling of comfort... of being really loved.
..and about losing his job.. well before the day was over, he had an interview with a new company and he starts his new job tomorrow!
