A Prayer Answered

My younger brother has been living in PA since last June (2008) and has had the worst job ever! He's been the General Manager for an RV Park. The summer was fun, long hours, but lots of socializing and he learned a lot. During the summer season it was expected he would work 7 days a week, 12+ hours a days. For the time the park was open he didn't mind the hours, but it's not something you want to do 365 days a year! He's been sick a lot, I think due to the excessive stress. He was told he would be able to work a 27 hour week during the off season, but as he got into the off season they started requiring him to work 7 days a week, 5 12 hour days at least an 8 hour day on Saturday and then more hours making sales calls on Sunday. He's been miserable for months and started looking for a job, but the job market, as we all know, is not good! A few weeks ago his manager quit because things were unbearable and she was interviewing for a couple jobs. She took one, then recommended my brother for the other. The one she didn't take is right here in Indianapolis and it turns out is right around the corner from our house (literally 3 minutes to the entrance). It's been a long process, but today he got the call......a job offer!!! He is so excited, as are we!!! I haven't lived in the same state as my brother for 10 years and it's been even longer since I lived anywhere close to him. He will have a free place to live and will be less than 5 minutes from our house! He starts the day after Memorial Day. Next on the list is for my parents to move here!! :-)
