Work Week

Fall has most definitely come to Oregon

the leaves on the ground, and the chill in the wind make me happy

and subtly begs for me to have some cuddle time with my coffee and Parenthood

but it also means that our family will be adjusting to me going back to work

I knew this was going to happen

I had been trying to prepare for it

and now that it is happening, i'm completely anxious

anxious about learning a new set of skills

anxious about leaving my girls for long portions of the day

anxious about losing quality time with my husband

but completely excited about what the Lord is going to teach me through this

and completely grateful to have a job

and completely overwhelmed by God's never ending grace to me

this is yet, another opportunity for me to rely on the Lord

instead of my own strength, which will undoubtedly fail

Happy Monday! Its going to be a great work week!

* And I have no idea why there are double pictures in my blog


  1. Hi Carrie! I hope you really enjoy Starbucks! The skills come quickly and it's a lot of fun :)

    By the way, I've nominated you for a Liebster Blog Award! Head over to my blog today to see what it's all about. Can't wait to read your responses!

  2. I am jealous of your Oregon. Our fall is 92 degrees. And you are going to rock the 'Bucks. I can't wait to hear. Miss you, friend.
