A Time For Change

First of all, I want to start this evening's post off with a bright, smiling face. This was taken this morning before leaving for church.

And now to the 'meat' of the post. You know how they say 'where one door closes another one opens'? Well that is ringing true for me now. I found out Friday afternoon that after eight years of service, my job had come to an end. It wasn't a choice I made, but nonetheless, it is done. Most of you know that I had been unhappy with that job for the better part of the past three years and was in the process of finding something 'new'. However, when you have been employed with a company for almost ten years, make good money and have established benefits, it can be difficult to take that step outside of what's comfortable for something different. So when I sat down with Jeff Friday night and gave him the news he said, 'now is your opportunity to find something that will coordinate with Anna Kate's school schedule' and he's right. I'm not 100% sure what I'm looking for yet, but the good part is that I don't have to jump and take the first thing that comes up. I can take my time (obviously not too long) to find what I want and what a perfect time to try and get my photography business off the ground.
So while this is all happening so fast, I truly believe it is a blessing in disguise. I know everything happens for a reason and at a certain time in our lives. Do we always understand it? No. But I take comfort in knowing that God knows and will take care of me (us) if we remain faithful.
So with that, I am headed to bed. Anna Kate starts back to school tomorrow and I have some contacts to make, so I need my beauty rest. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers and I will let you know as things begin to unfold........
