The Parting of the Seas...

My mom reminds Aaron and I that we have been the recipients of countless well-timed blessings by joking that "the red seas always part for the Grovers." It seems that the red seas may again be parting for our family in a very big way. With baby #2 due to make his appearance in only 6 short weeks, Aaron and I have been very anxious about adjusting to a single income lifestyle. We have been praying that an opportunity would present itself whereby I would be able to stay home fulltime with our babies and Aaron would be able to continue to provide for our growing family. I think we may have gotten our answer. We've been hesitant to count our eggs before they've hatched, but I think its safe to announce that Aaron has been given a major promotion that we hope will solve all of our financial worries. Beginning August 1, Aaron will begin training as the National Sales Manager/Marketing Director for his company. Currently, Aaron bids projects for concrete pumping services within the Seattle market and then services those accounts. Under his new position, he will no longer be associated with the Seattle branch (he's moving to the corporate headquarters office right next door to his current Seattle branch office) but will open accounts and bid projects on a national scale. Aaron will also get to handle promotions and marketing for the company's 58 national branches. Aaron feels like this is his dream job and I am SO proud of him. We're expecting the new job to present a huge challenge and increased responsibilities, but we're approaching it with excitement. The timing of this promotion is so perfect that I think we both still feel like we need to knock on wood. I am crossing my fingers that this job turns into everything that Aaron has hoped for and I'm saying my prayers of gratitude for this huge answer to our prayers. I can't think of anything that would make me more happy than to be at home with my babies. Hallelujah!
