If there's anything that working these last two years has taught me
its that home is where my heart is.
i took a break from working in June, and 24/7 time with my family
these few months has been absolute medicine to my soul.
having energy to clean my house has lowered my stress level.
cooking fresh meals with spices that have been sitting
in my spice rack for two years has been rejuvenating.
and spending extra time on pinterest-y projects has been complete therapy
Jason graduated in May and we had some special guests fly in for the occasion
Mother's Day was the same weekend as graduation, which gave me a chance to celebrate with my
mommy for the first time in about nine years. It felt special.
but that week may also have been one of the most stressful in my life
have you ever popped a blood vessel?
Well I have
between graduating, work, company, and job interviews for both Jason and myself, my lovely eye
decided it had enough. No pictures...You're very very welcome
it was a bloody ugly mess
the eye-opening experience, that only confirmed I had reached my limit
It took about four weeks to heal, just in time for my last day of work and my baby's last day of school
I can't believe how grown she is now
she now knows what that means
Can I get an applause from all the mamas!
The proud privilege feeling wore off pretty quickly for her
But she bounced back with some sports therapy
The Lord has richly blessed us. So many ways I can't even count.
Jason and I both got new jobs, so we'll be extending our stay in this beautiful
state and are apart of a wonderful new church body in the area. Jason's pastoring again,
and I'll be back at teaching in the Fall. But this time it will be as a 2/3rd grade teacher.
We are all excited. Haley and Aidan will both be joining me at their new school,
which is a two-year prayer answered.
Lord you are AMAZING!
Much of the future still feels unknown, but one thing that feels sure is the Lord's hand over it all
Looking back, these last two years turned out completely different than what I originally thought
but I wouldn't go back and change a thing
The Lord has used everything for our good
even the hard things
especially the hard things
Home may be where my heart is
but in His grace is where my heart finds rest
