Anywhere Except the Third Floor

Dear John,
I got encouraged today. Actually, I was excited to near-speechlessness. You know I've been putting in applications at Goshen Hospital with no success. I've thought about going to Human Resources and putting in a general application, and trying to find somebody to talk to about what I'm looking for. But I got so discourged by all of it that I really just gave up on getting a hospital job, especially at my age.
Well, today I got a phone call from a very nice lady in Human Resources who said she'd seen that I had applied for a few positions, and wanted to talk to me more about what I was interested in. (I told her, anything except the 3rd floor. I've always avoided OB like the plague.) So she seems very excited about finding a place for me, probably in cardiac rehab where there's a two-day-a-week position advertised at the moment. And, by the way, two days a week is what you have to work to get beneifts.
It will take a while, I'm sure, to hear anything from anybody. But I'm feeling hopeful again, and it feels very good. I really do want to get back into hospital work - there's nothing like it, I love it, and I miss it. Please keep rallying the troops to pray for me.
And please pray for tomorrow's adventures, too. I've found some more Goshen apartments that I need to look at, so I'll be out and about looking at places. I'm especially interested in one place I found that has a living room and a family room with its 1-bedroom apartments. That would give me the office/workroom space I need, without paying for another bedroom which I don't need.
Thank you for your prayers. I need to make the right decision - the timing is out of my control - and I don't get your opinion on this, which makes it a bit harder. But your prayers are wonderful, so please don't stop. I'm feeling good, happy, and ready about all of this. Now that I've seen that I really do need to sell the house, I'm ready to get on with it and get it done. I feel a bit like I'm coming out from under a cloud. I actually am - the viral respiratory thing I've had is getting better, so I'm having more energy that I have for a couple of weeks, and that helps. But that phone call was a shot in the arm that I really did need.
I love you so much! I'm thankful to have you there to pray for me - like you always did, but better. Know that I pray for you, too. Love you, adore you, and worship the ground you walk on,
