So I realize my delay in blogging has been my unconscious attempt to wait until I had magical news for you all. The breaking announcement that Jahred has found the job of his dreams, that we are finally moving into that house where we can regain our sense of "home"...that alas, struggle has paid off and a "higher education" really is worth the wait and sacrifice.
I'm giving up on my staring contest with "what I feel I am owed" and I'm admitting to you now (and to myself) that I do not, nor have I ever lived in the "Magic Kingdom". I live in a world where the hard work is plentiful, the second guessing is never-ending, the wine is rarely poured (too expensive), and I wake up most days thinking just for a second that I live somewhere else.
Today we received a call that Jahred has missed yet another job opportunity. This one was a hard blow. We not only did all the right things, the resume was a knock-out, an interview "thank you letter" was sent, plus we had the "who you know" element on our side. I have to believe there is a greater purpose to even this, and am preparing a pep talk on that subject for tomorrow morning. The pressure stands because this is at least the 1000th appearance of "motivational speaker me", and I need to bring something a little different to the table.
There you have it. I am breaking my "blogging" silence and knocking my ego off it's pedestal. Because I realize now that we don't live in the "land of nod", that must mean that we live in the real world. I choose to believe that only in the toughest of realities, "magic" may not exist but "miracles" most definitely do.
From my true life to yours. Keep your eyes peeled, and don't count your chickens before they hatch.
