Today gave birth to a wonderful blessing, an answer to the prayer that we have hoped for since my husband was permanently laid-off this past December. He was offered a very good position as a certified Pharmacy Technician at Theda Clark Hospital. As I shared with you soon after he lost his job, it was quite a blow and we were worried and anxious. Yet, we were hopeful that he would find employment but with the economy as it is and so many in the same position, it looked rather bleak.
I was so proud of him as he made finding a job his "job" spending long hours a day looking online, going to Workforce Development, scanning the Sunday paper and getting discouraged as the weeks turned into months. But he was very smart. He had let his certification for his Pharmacy Technician career lapse since he was working in an unrelated field so he thought it would be a good idea to go back to course work in order to regain it. He studied on his own for two months and then this past February he went down to Milwaukee and took the certification exam. He passed with flying colors and that went a long way to show that he was dedicated, his knowledge was current and he was ready to go.
I'm so proud of him and he's on cloud nine. It's hard for a man to be out of work for a long time like that and this past weekend I could tell it was taking a toll on him. We have both prayed a prayer of thanks individually and together for we know how blessed we are for this opportunity. I hope you believe in "Divine Intervention". I know we do.
