So I started a new job Monday-
I will admit it has been harder
then I expected!
Not the job,
but the changes.
Its a 30 minute drive..
The position I am qualified for was not available,
I took an assistant position,
and I had struggled..
as teaching is what I LOVE.
I was feeling a little lost and sad.
Then out of the blue I got a call..
Two job offers...
ONE was the one
I had hoped for..
A position at my children's school
(the preschool beside the main school they attend.)
lead teacher for the little guys,
working with a good friend..
working the same school schedule as my kids.
I was THRILLED!
So, in a dramatic curve of the road-
I have my current job notice
and start my new job next week!!
God is so good!
Working full time
takes me away from my children.
Last year I missed their field trips
They rode the bus
and I never saw their teachers.
I felt so out of touch with their world!
a place I never want to be..
and yet a place that had to be for then.
To be back apart of their daily existence;
to know their teachers and their friends,
for them to know that I am there!
EVEN is I am working-
I am there!
Happy does not seem like a strong enough word
to describe how I feel..
after a rough few years
of doing what had to be done...
and making compromises to make ends meet,
I will take this new blessing
and relish it..
and move to this next step,
knowing what a luxury I have
and thankful for the gift
of getting to....
BE THERE! just be there...
simple! profound! My heart!
