The biggest and most exciting news to share is the promotion Craig received to become Store Manager. Again!
Some of you already know that Craig was previously a Store Manager for a couple years. The joy that it brought at that time soon turned tumultuous and the odds were stacked against him. Finally, after lots of prayers and tears, Craig decided to step down and regain his focus and renew his strength.
I watched Craig struggle professionally and wanted so desperately to take away his pain. I heard the heartache when he felt as if he failed on many levels. But, I also swelled with pride as I saw him reach every single goal he had made. He never gave up and kept his focus on everything that was so important to him.
These past two years have been nothing but life lessons, not just for Craig, but for the whole family. We rediscovered and maintained our center, which is our relationship with God, and we have newfound joy and positivity. We have been so thankful for the happiness and success we've had this year by remembering to keep our faith and that God truly wants to give us the desires of our hearts.
