It seems that everytime Sal and I make plans, our plans get put on hold, or pushed off to the side.
About six years ago, I wanted to be a Realtor. I studied and took the tests and just could not pass the license exam. As embarrassing as this is, I am going to mention it anyway....I took it 13 times! I knew my material, but the test was in "story" or "scenerio" form and that just doesn't work for me, never has. I wanted this bad! Thirteen tests and 6 years later, I had to finally give up. This job that I wanted, was NOT in God's plan.
In 2019 I quit my fulltime job so that I can be home with our youngest son when he got home from school. He was not doing well, and I needed to be here to help him with homework and projects. A few months later I was able to get a partime online job, and in November 2020, Sal's dad had to move in with us, and we quickly became caretakers. He lived with us till he passed away on March 25th, 2022. Then, Sal and I decided that we would move to Portugal in December 2022. Vinny decided he would rent our home from us, and possibly buy it in a couple of years. Sal's older brother found out he had Cancer, so we decided to prolong our move till March of 2023. My dad's health and my moms are not good either. With all this said, we feel that our move needs to be put on hold. We are eager to go, and we feel that we are hitting every obstacle. Maybe it is God's way of telling us it is not time. So, we sit back and we wait till we get the "sign" that it is time. We have to be faithful and patient, and know that God's plan for us is the right plan. God is good no matter what the circumstances.
