Answered Prayer

Thanks to all of you for your concern. I have the best friends and family, I really do. I've had people texting me, emailing me, calling me, and leaving wonderful heartfelt comments. And I assure everyone, we are all okay. Situations are often beyond our control, as this was, and although sometimes things happen that I don't like, I still continue to see God working.

Today I had a job interview. I've known about it for some time, but I didn't mention it because I wanted to get more details. It was for the job that I mentioned back about a month or so ago that looked like a great opportunity. And it actually wasn't an interview, it was just the first time we actually met. Well I start next thursday part time. I will be doing mortgage processing, which is what I did when I was at Coldwell Banker. He is also paying for me to get my loan officer's license. So if you're in Texas, I can do your loan for you if you want to buy a house. You don't have to live in Lubbock.

I'm really excited! He isn't that busy right now, but I'm not worried about that. I believe this is an opened door from God, and God doesn't put opportunities out there for us that are too good to be true. He wants to bless us! Really for me, this is all sort of poetic. I never imagined myself in this field, but processing is something I am good at, and I'm very excited to have the opportunity to originate loans as well. It can be a stressful profession, but it doesn't have to be if you're prepared and in a good work environment. And like I've said thousands of times before, I'm with God on this one, so I know it will work out for the best for me and my family.

At some point, I will probably work full time, but I am okay with that. Being a single mom, I have taken on the role of 2 people, one being the financial manager...and having 3 kids isn't cheap. However, I've made it evidently clear where my priorities are, and that is with my kids. And he completely understands that, he is the same way.

I don't actually know what the name of my company is yet. There is a possibility that he will be partnering with a real estate company here in Lubbock, and we will office out of their office, or he may stay independent. He will know within the next 2 weeks. Either way, he wants me to work with him though. I am really am so excited. I've been waiting for an opportunity like this to open up that could help me with my finanical future, and this just kind of fell into my lap, thanks to my sister Suzanne. And I can't tell you how nice it is to have the feeling that I won't have to depend on someone for money for the rest of my life. There is something very psychologically draining about that!

Well I better go...I hope you are all having a great week!

This is such great news, Larissa. I am just delighted for you. Our daughter Suzette is a loan closer and has been for a number of years. It has been a very good profession for her and she has done real well. I KNOW you will, too.
