After 6 1/2 years, next Thursday will be my last day working at our church. I have loved my job there, and the people I have worked with. But this particular season of my life is done, and it’s time to move on to something different.
So…what do I do now?
I’m applying for a couple different jobs at the school our kids go to, jobs that would only have me working when they are in school. Perfect! I don’t know yet how this will pan out, so I’m waiting, and praying, and trusting.
Chad’s solution is that I write more, though I don’t see how that is a financial option… I shared with him that I love his support in my writing, but it sometimes scares me because I’ll probably disappoint him. I probably won’t write a book or earn one dime doing this. Then he said the most wonderful words to me. “You’re already successful if you encourage just one mom on your blog.” I love him.
I’m excited, nervous, a wee bit scared, and sad to not see my dear friends at work three days a week. But I believe this is what’s next for me. I just don’t know what comes after that. Maybe be prepared for some random, rambling posts from a rather bored me 🙂
