The alarm went off at 5:54am this morning. The sun was not out yet, but the moon lite our room so brightly. I could hear him get out of bed, go over to the alarm clock, and hit the snooze button. I did not sleep well the whole night, Sabrina kept kicking and moving around. For some reason she was very restless this evening and no matter how I positioned my body, she was not a happy camper. He crawled back into bed and into my arms, I knew that in 8 minutes the alarm would go off again and he would get ready to leave. I softly stroked his hair and he laid there quietly. I slowly closed my eyes.
The classical music in the back ground rang through my ears (our alarm clock), he slowly raised his head from my arm and whispered "close your eyes and sleep." He got up and heads to the bathroom to get ready for his interview. I stayed awake for a bit staring at the ceiling praying for his day, his drive, and his interview. No matter what the result may be, I knew that God knows what is best for our family.
I fall asleep...I'm awaken by his gentle and soft kiss on my forehead to say good bye. I tell him not to forget his belt and a banana. He smiled at me and closed the bedroom door. I heard the car alarm and the car leaving.
It's in the late afternoon now when my phone goes off at about 1:30pm and its from him. I pick up the phone and all he is saying is "wow...wow...wow." I have no idea what is going on, and so I ask him. His voice is shaking a bit and he tells me the news...
"Dear, I got the job!!"
