Visiting Brother!  
Yay, my brother got home safely last night and I'm so happy to see him! I think it's been about seven months since I've gotten to and that's way too long. He now lives in Connecticuit which I've mentioned at one time or another, but he is not very happy where he's working. He got hired by an architecture firm that is fairly new and they've been entering a lot of competions to try and got some recognition. Well, my brother has been killing himself, working seven days a week till all hours for this place! :( He never gets a break or time to do anything for himself. He basically has no life outside of his job, and it's really getting frustrating for him and my whole family. My parents and I hate seeing him so unhappy and working himself into the ground. I'm especially worried about him catching that dreaded swine flu this winter as he gets so run down working the way he does.

He said he's going to give it until his lease is up in February and then he's probably going to have to quit. We would love for him to come back home and find a job here to save some money and pay back school loans etc., but I don't know how easy it will be for him to find another job. He's already put in a few calls to people he knows for possible teaching jobs, so I'm praying that one of those could lead to something for him! *crosses fingers*

I'm just glad he's able to take a few days off to rest, but he has to go back tuesday, so it's a much shorter visit than any of us would like. I hope he'll be able to come home for a longer time over the holidays, that would be really nice. ^^

Now that I'm done ranting I would like to take a moment and wish my friend luststories a very Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day and get everything your hear desires. *hugs*
happy birthday to you

You are most welcome, my dear. Just remember that God loves you all and that He will never leave you nor forsake you. We may not always understand why things happen the way that they do, but we can always be sure that God is still God and that He loves us and that He is always with us. God Bless all of you. :)

I'm glad your brother got home safe! Seven months really is a long time, wow. Best of luck to him with his job situation! I really do hope he can find something close to you guys that isn't as demanding but is still rewarding. Have a great time with him, hopefully Tuesday doesn't get here too quick. ;) *hugs*

Thanks! He'll be okay, hopefully. I'm hoping by February he might be able to leave his current job and find something else. *hugs back*
