St. Patrick’s Day Parade + Good News

A little piece of home (Richardson, TX)

These guys definitely had the worst parade job-manually pushing the bubble machine float

I wore my green!

The parade itself wasn’t too impressive, but the atmosphere and people-watching make it a must-see. It’s also funny to see the things people do to have a good view. I saw two families that brought ladders for their children to sit on top of.

My good news is that…I found a job and a place to live!

My job will be “minding” a 3-year old girl (and maybe one of her friends) from 7:30 to 4:30 M-F. She goes to pre-school every day from 9-12, so I will have those hours off.  I met the mom and the girl today and they are incredibly nice and from the Philippines! Also, the mom is WAY more easygoing than my previous employers, so I think this will be a better environment for me. I heard about this job through a friend literally an hour after I found out my last job was ending, and everything fell into place.

Over the weekend I found an online posting for a room to rent in a flat in the general area I wanted to live. Something about this posting really grabbed my attention and I couldn’t stop thinking about it.  I went to look at the flat yesterday and really, really liked it. They let me know last night that they wanted to rent the room to me, and that I can move in on Wednesday. My roommate is a Mexican girl, so I am excited to (hopefully) practice Spanish with her.

I am so excited to be back in Dublin and so thankful that God has provided for me once again, and quickly!

    Wow, Emily, the Lord has certainly provided for you and impressed you with his loving care. I rejoice with you! Your employ and board seem to be a good match for you! From what island in the Philippines is your employer.

    Thanks for including all the St. Patrick’s Day parade pictures – I enjoyed all of them. And I can’t believe that a high school group from Richardson, Texas was there – perhaps a providential sight for your benefit?

    God is proving his faithfulness and love to you – he is eminently lovable!

      Thanks Dad. Carin (my boss) is from Luzon.
      There was also a marching band from Odessa in the parade. There were probably just as many groups from the US as from Ireland. Ireland is just such a small country!
