So....yeah. I need to get started on this again!
Brandon has issues with feeling like a failure constantly, so I figured I would take the time to brag on his most recent success! In the eyes of society, we are successful we reach certain milestones....when we graduate college....get a good paying suit-and-tie job....when we are able to drive expensive cars....the list goes on and on. To me, we are successful when we set a goal and reach it...no matter how big or small. My husband has never been a big goal-setter or go-getter...and it is frustrating! Well, after being married for 2 years and my husband being in the same position, making pretty much BARELY enough for us to get by, he finally began to try for a promotion. Every time there has been an opening at another store, he has interviewed. The first few didn't go too well because he wasn't very experienced with interviews or "professionalism." After that, he got better and better at it. It took over a year of interviews, but he stuck with it, and a month or so ago, he got a promotion! Yes, he works at Kroger, which according to society's standards is lousy, but in my eyes, he is now the Assistant Manager, and he worked hard for it! I am so proud of him for working so hard and sticking with it...he's good at giving up because all he ever heard growing up was "you can't do it." Well baby, I told you could do it and you did! I am so proud of you! Thank you for stepping up to do what it takes to take care of us :-)
