It always happens that in order for you to know gratitude you have to be able to compare the good from the bad. Let me preface this by saying I will get no sympathy and maybe even shunned for this. Jeremy has been abundantly blessed by his skills of course but by timing as well. He started at his job 8+ years ago as an errand boy/box mover between his mission and his first semester at BYU. Right before we got married we moved back here and he got his job back, I think he moved right in to the loan department, then as luck would have it he was able to take over the loan department. After getting a few things in order he got the opportunity to be the Executive Vice President of the credit union, his title has since changed because of growth and circumstances but his job really hasn't he is still second in command (unless you count the Board of Directors) I am very proud of him for what he has accomplished at a relatively young age. With this being said I will now commence with how spoiled I am. His job is 5 minutes away from our house, he comes home for lunch, he gets to help out in Miranda's classroom, he has either come to all my pre-natal appts. or watched the kids so I could go. He has been able to take multiple weeks off for each child, he gets lots of vacation time, he works only 8 hour days. He is home no later than 5, usually 4:45. He rarely has to work late, like once every 4 months, and when he does he has usually gone to work let to balance the hours. He travels maybe twice a year. This is where it is put into perspective. Jeremy is in Boston right now, a trip I really wanted to go on. He will be there for 4 days, come home long enough to re-pack and then is taking some vacation time to Arizona where he serve his mission. He will be gone for 7 days. I have planned something to look forward to everyday. I know keeping busy will keep the time going. It is hard being with out him because he is such a hugemongous help, but sometimes he needs to leave me so I can remember to be grateful for what we have. I am very blessed by his job and diligence in all aspects of life. He is amazing. I love him very much, and miss him!
