Change is coming…
I’m not one that always does well with Change but sometimes it comes and all you can do is adjust or let it take you. I’m hoping to adjust.
Change. It seems to be happening all around me and even to me. Sometimes change is good. Sometimes change is bad. Sometimes change is something that is welcomed and well sometimes it’s not and it’s devastating. Regardless when change comes you either deal with it or it will deal with you. There is a lot of change coming our way (and no I’m not pregnant) Some of it is change that I know is going to happen and to be honest some of it is that internal voice telling me to get prepared… what for? I have no clue but it’s just that hunch, most of you know what I am talking about.
But first up to bat is a personal change for me. From the moment I finished college I entered the full time working force. (12 years ago)… and since then, there has never been a day that I have not been needed at some sort of job. For the past 6 years I’ve been working part time and that has truly been wonderful. Wonderful does not seem to be the word to do it justice. Incredible, perfect, ok wonderful. But coming in a few weeks for the first time ever I will have days in my week that are not spoken for anyone but myself. It started out as a needed cut back at my job due to the economy which then turned into something that did not need to happen but then became more of a personal decision. So big change number 1…. I will now be working “part” part time. I’m cutting my part time hours in half. Not sure what words are out there that describe this. I think only time will tell. I’m hoping it is going to be a really good thing for me personally and for our family but then again, what will I do when I don’t have to get up on a non weekend and not have to go to the office. I can think of a zillions things.
Most families at this stage in their life keep climbing the ladder… wives get to stop working or cut back because their hubbies make more money as time goes on. I’m still wondering when and if that will ever happen to us..ha! It seems we have a different formula in play… we keep climbing down the pay ladder… hmmm. But I must say our family is right where it needs to be. It’s such a great thing to be in your families sweet spot and waking up each day knowing that we are doing exactly what the Lord has called us to do. And money, possessions, worries, adoption process, giving, bills, blessings…. well they all come in play and make this life our life and the best journey ever. I want to waste my life… I want to give on every level and have nothing left. When I check out of here I want to look and feel like I fought hard.
Looking forward to my new journey and wishing you amazing blessings in yours.
Change is always good and hard all at the same time. I am sure you will find something to occupy your time. That is what is crazy about being a stay at home mom.
i remember when my son went to school all day and it was just me…..i went for walks….i sat in the middle of his bedroom floor and prayed with God…..it is amazing how that took up half my day……i miss that intimacy with Him now with a young one in the house and one on the way…you will find your groove……..
