    difficult child was working at an animal hospital but part time. Also she was required to work Tuesday nights and that's the night of the sober house AA meeting that is a requirement so she was going to have to move out. It was a tremendous stress because we wanted her to stay in the sober house but she also had to keep this part time job. She got a call today from one of the original animal hospitals she went to and they offered her a full time position that pays $1.50 more an hour than she is making now. She will work four 10 hour days and she told them she has a commitment on tuesday nights and they said they will work around it.

    She is just about out of money and this couldn't have come at a better time. I made her a casserole and she will have dinner for 2 or 3 nights. We talked about how somehow things work out if you just do the next right thing. I am so relieved. She looks and sounds good. I do believe she is starting to see there is a better way.

    Someone sure is watching over her. She had had a lot of second chances and I hope and pray she realizes how lucky she is.

    It sounds like she has all positive supports in place one could hope for to make it thru this phase and she is sounding very positive about it. Congratulations to you and her!

    Great news. Hopefully being tired from working long hours will be one more tool to keep her out of trouble.
