“I need to talk to you,” my husband’s voice informed me in voicemail yesterday.

I immediately feared for one or both of our sons. Anthony’s were terrified words, not excited ones.

But the next statement floored me. Absolutely floored me. The news wasn’t bad at all. In fact, it was just about as far from terrible as could be.

Just five weeks ago, I wrote about how I believed it wasn’t yet time for my husband to shut the door on his dream of eventually directing.

Yesterday, the door got held wide open for him. And those words I wrote five shorts weeks ago?

Who could ever have guessed how soon my unlawyerly faith would be shown so well placed?

There are still lots of steps ahead, but his feet are now pointed exactly the right direction.

“So what you’re saying is, ‘Don’t give up, I believe in you, you can do this’?”

I laugh. “Yes, that’s Hollywood for what I just said.”

“Lawyer,” he accuses me with a smile.

      Thanks, Renee! I, too, am so excited to see his years of hard work paying off for him. And so soon after he was saying it really was time to start down a different path! *cheers*

    p.s. still no new blog for me yet while moving into new house. lol

      I was wondering about that! Glad I am not missing any of it while barely staying awake through long, exhausting days I’ll soon enough adjust to though I haven’t yet. I think I have read only one single blog the last couple of weeks, oy.

    Faith, it is such a fabulous thing. Your unwavering faith, you move me and show me the way!

      It’s been a week, and I’m still cheerin’ that! (I did write a little more on the matter this morning, too, so it’s a woo-hoo and then some. Ahem.)

    Great news!

    Brilliant! (I love being able to use that word — it’s so shiny and full of sparkly possibilities.)

    • August 7, 2014 at 5:16 am

      That is exactly how it all feels now that I’ve taken time to explain a little more clearly! I’m so beat from my own day-to-day that I’m barely awake ten minutes after the kids are in bed (which means no replying to comments or reading blogs, gah), but that exhaustion somehow makes this sparkly, shiny change seem all the more amazing. ♥

    Congratulations to Anthony, and all the best to him.

      Thanks, Nicci! That’s from both of us as Anthony read through these comments and expressed his thanks as well. 🙂
