One year ago...

Laying in bed last night I realized that it was our 1 year anniversary of moving to St George. I just laid there in awe thinking about how much we have been blessed in that year. Empire (Johns co in AZ) wasn't a great company to begin with but it seems we were able to leave just as it started getting really bad. They finally went bankrupt 2 months ago. We also were able to start our job here before the market got too bad. Within a couple months of being here the market really did start to slow. John at this point feels pretty good about his job even though things are slow. Hes been able to win a couple of big jobs and will probably clear 2-3 million in jobs this year and they wanted between 3-5 million. For the market though...that's really good.

Plus we really have found a "home" in St George. We love everything about this place and each day as I drive around the red beauty of this place my heart just swells with how much I LOVE it here! Its going to be the perfect place to raise a family and we are hoping that this is where we can stay forever! Okay, things have been even more perfect since the in-n-out opened and we have taken weekly trips :)

We feel so blessed and just so grateful that we have been brought here and that John has a good job and we have a good home. Plus once the 4th hits if for some reason we have to leave Sunroc we don't have to give back the moving bonus money! We don't plan on it though they have treated us well with some amazing benefits!

Cant wait for another great year here in this amazing place called St George!

So glad you love it there! I think really loving where you live makes all the difference. I sure love where I live and revel in it every day. Aren't we lucky that we still haven't gotten numb to our blessings?

Brian and I really want to see your place. We are checking out schools in Utah for Brian in a couple months. Can we crash at your place? How are is St. George from so Cal?

I am so glad we remember our blessings and so glad to hear you express your thankfulness to the Lord. He really is a wonderful God. I feel really, really blessed too.

Thats so great Lisa! I hope that someday I can feel the same about here. Don't get me wrong, I like it here but everything still seems so transitional since we're still renting and will probably move again in a year. I just want to feel settled, with a ward that I love, and friends for myself and my family, and still be close to family.

That's so wonderful that everything is going so well for you. We miss you in AZ though! The ward has been shrinking again!
