November is a month when we put a special focus on giving thanks. And boy, do I have so much to be thankful for:

Earlier this month, both Derek and I were THRILLED to accept our first “Grown Up” jobs. Praise the Lord!

Beginning after graduation this winter, I will be taking on the role of HR and Payroll Administrator at W.D.S. Construction, Inc. in Beaver Dam, WI. I’m so very excited to be working in a solid company full of great people.  Derek will be working as a Software Developer at Epic Systems in Verona, WI. After very vigorous testing and interviews, I can confidently say Derek is beyond happy to have accepted his dream job.  This takes a huge weight off our shoulders and we can finish our school years with a little less stress and chaos 🙂

We praise the Lord for His faithfulness and all the blessings He has given us!

“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!”
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
“Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!

PS: Another thing I am thankful for is my cousin Beth.  Who shares her meal swipes at school with me and kindly badgers me to post on my blog…I sometimes need the extra push!
