"Timing is everything in the success of a rain dance."

I don't believe this is original to my father-in-law but he quotes it often and I'm always amused by its truth.  I was reminded, again, of this quote last week when, after looking over our rather tight-but-doable-without-any-fun budget, Donald left the RV to go for a walk.

Remember me blogging about the Target security job that was all but promised to him?  Six weeks ago?  Target called while he was out walking and asked him for a second interview.  He interviewed on Friday morning and starts training for his part time security job tomorrow.  Six weeks without a word and then they hired him, just like that!


If Donald had been hired back in July when he was feverishly looking for a job to keep the house he would never have considered school.  Even if he had called George Fox he would have been told the program was full.


Once we figured out that graduate school, and not a house or full time work, is the Next Thing we were filled with such peace, knowing we were on the right track.  Having the semi-depressing budget discussion was a bummer but it was calm and accompanied by a sense that all manner of things would be well.  And they will.

Because timing is everything in the success of a rain dance!
