And the news….

And smarter they are ….. because they took a young man that knows a bit about lots of things and hired him in a position that they can teach him, mold him and inspire him. He has been hired as an Engineer and a trainee in robotics. He gets to use his many talents from college and other jobs such as welding, plasma machining, fabrication and manufacturing. His wages are that of a trainee but with great potential. This is what he’s been looking for, something challenging and exciting. It is the answer to his and our prayers. And we have your love and support to thank too.

Mike works 4 10 hours days but also has an hour travel both ways. He’s thought about moving closer but that makes him further from friends and family and that is not what he wants so he is selling all his extra things such as guns and equipment, his dirt bike and his very first car – a suburban, and whatever else we can come up with so he can get a good size down payment on a new to him 4 wheel driver or all wheel drive vehicle. There are times in life that I wish I could help him more than just being supportive but I also know that this is how we grow and learn and become the people/person we want to be.

I am very proud of Mike. He has picked himself up and dusted himself off a few more times than most people have too but we also know less than lots so for all of this he/we are very thankful. Life’s lessons is making Mike into the man he really wants to be. It is awesome being the mama and getting to be part of it and watching and learning also.

So there you have the update. Isn’t it really truly awesome?!!!!

Blessings my friends!!!!

What a huge breath you all must have taken upon hearing about such a GREAT job for Mike. And what talent he has!! Amazing.

I am so very happy for him. It's hard letting go and allowing them to go on their own, but we know, as parents, if we don't let them they won't ever cut ties and continue to count on us forever - and they don't want that, do they? [Honest question. . .really]

I am impressed at the sacrifices he is making to assure his transportation is secure - that is so much to give up, but this job sounds like such an opportunity and I am SO HAPPY he is taking it.

YAY for Mike and his coooooool parents. ::skippyhappydance::

Great news! I know what you mean about wanting to be able to help more but, I also agree that just being supportive is a good thing. They have to learn how to make their own way. Very proud of him and excited for you both!
