On February 19th I put Cindy Lynn, Mahon, and Kate the Great on a plane to Salt Lake.  We'd had a great time together and I was sad to see them go.

The next morning Cindy Lynn texted me, "call me as soon as you can."

When I finally got the message and called, she gave me completely unexpected news.  Mahon had gone into work that first morning back only to be told that he had been laid off the day before.  

They had wanted to move nearer to us for some time but Mahon hadn't started looking for a job yet.  In what seemed like no time he had put his resume on a technical website and received almost more calls than he had time for.

And just like that, they were back here 5 weeks later, except this time with all of their belongings and a new job with Nike.

Back in time to go to the girls' Friends & Family show at the high school last week.

Kate was a total fan--she loved all of the clapping!  I'm sure the girls will have her waving a flag and tossing a rifle before very long!

It's been a tough couple of years.  We've experienced miracles, but they've been the kind of miracles that just helped us survive through the trauma.  But this--this was just a straight out, unexpected, un-looked for miracle.  Bam.  There it was.

And we are grateful.


  1. I am glad it worked out and that they are closer to you all now. :)

  2. Wonderful. Just wonderful. I love being able to see miracles. Love it when they just slap me upside the head. This will be so good for everybody.
