Thanks everyone! James has been out of work almost 4 years, and as you know he is in an intensive 11-month CAD training program. We're not sure if the internship (if he gets it) will start after that or before. There is a high likelihood that it could start very soon.

We love you guys! Thanks again.

Barbara

Thanks Suzi and Katie! We're coming from the valley to the mountaintop right now. We know there will be valleys again in our life (as well as more mountaintops) but hopefully they won't be as deep as this one has been!

I would have sworn I posted in this thread - - - apparently not.

You know you and James have my prayers for whatever is best. The Little Engine That Could should definitely be RED!!!

My prayers are with you as well. Seems every time DW and I start to climb out of a hole we get knocked right back down, grrrrr. For the first time in three years last year I felt well enough to started to go back to work, then this winter bonk! Heart surgery!
So, I will pray extra hard for James that he gets success!!!
