There are many points of frustration in the reality of Jimmy being without work but there have also come opportunities for Jimmy to become closer with our kids. I believe that can be a hard thing when the Dad's are off at work they don't always get to enjoy their children during the mornings and afternoons when they are often at their best. I know for our family Jimmy would come home many nights in time for dinner and prayer and then the kids were off to bed and they were often beyond tired by the time he would see them. Well with him being here he has been able to help in the mornings get the kids off to school, he loves making them eggs with ketchup and seeing Grace climb onto the school bus. He loves to take James out into the back yard or on long walks in the neighborhood. I have seen him grow so much as a father in such a short period of time, and our kids just love being with him and having him here more. While we pray everyday that work will come and he continues his search for employment, it has been time well spent.
"And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. "
