I've been a little absent in the last week or so, as you have probably noticed, and the truth is I have just been so distracted. A couple of weeks ago we were hit with the news that the district that Matt teaches in has to make some serious budget cuts, and the language program was one of the proposed cuts. Well, the school board met, and at that point, they decided that the language program would stay.
We breathed a sigh of relief.
Fast forward to last Thursday, when there was another meeting. Long story short...we are pretty sure that my husband will not have a job next year. They are cutting the entire middle school language program.
How are we feeling about this? Well - scared. Kinda angry. A little bit lost. We are grateful for the fact that he still has seven months of employment, during which he can hopefully find a new position, but again scared, because so far the only open position we have found is in Maryland. In a way I feel like things were finally settled down and now they are all up in the air again.
But here is what I KNOW. God has always met our needs. Always. This is not the hardest thing we have ever faced together...if we got through all that crap with the house, we can get through this. I have a husband who provides for his family, he is a blessing in so many ways.
Kind of a sucky turn of events though. I could go into the additional news that Matt was in an accident that totaled his car last week as well, but really...do we need any more bad news? I'm just happy he is fine, cars are replaceable, Matt is not.
