Showers of Blessings!
I feel like there are so many good things going on in my life right now, I’m not sure where to start! Here’s the short list:
1. Rachel LOVES Kindergarten!
She came out of her first day yesterday jabbering about everything she had done. When asked if she wanted to go back, she responded, “YES!!!”. 🙂 Her teacher told me that she has adjusted very well. Yesterday she saw tree sap (or, as she puts it, TREE SAP!), and Friday is Computer Class AND Show & Tell. Big day. 🙂
What do South Texans do when they see the first rain in months??? Take pictures, of course. 😀
And one more…
It may not have been much, but it was SOMEthing!!! And, we will take ANYthing at this point.
3. Mother’s Day Out
I have never put any of my children in a Mother’s Day Out type program before. I guess I never really wanted to. I mean, I enjoy a little “me” time as much as the next person, but I guess I always felt like I had enough. That hasn’t changed much, but my working status has (more on that in during #4). This change has led to my seeking out a 1-day a week program for both of my boys. And, I found one!!! AND, it’s the one I wanted!!! Yay!!! AND, they had room for BOTH boys, starting NOW!!!!!
4. A new phase of life… work-wise, that is.
It’s funny how sometimes when you least expect it, the thing you have been waiting for will just happen. Even funnier when you didn’t realize that it was the thing you were waiting for in the first place. Confused? 😀
In September, I am going to start working in a part-time capacity for our church. I LOVE our church, and I really love the area I will be helping with. It’s kind of a weird transition, because the girl who does the job (fabulously) now is one of my good friends. While I know that I am super excited about starting, I’m also sad that she’s leaving… make sense? They’re not moving anywhere, but it will be strange to not associate her with this position. In all honesty, I do feel a teensy bit intimidated. I know people love her, and while I try to not seek the approval of men above the approval of God, I also want people to like me, ya know? 🙂
So, that’s the short list.
Everything right now seems so crazy, but in such a good way!
I feel like life is a tornado, and yet I’m not being swept away by it all… just in awe of it all.
