Dear House on the Mill...
I'm sitting here thinking of the changes that will happen overnight. After tomorrow, I no longer work at my 9-5 job full time. Tomorrow is the last day that I'll spend 8+ hours at work and only 3 hours with my family. Tomorrow is the close of one chapter and the beginning of another. And that both excites and scares me.
Change is scary - especially when that change effects your household income, your way of life, your career, and your family. But, I can feel that it is the right decision for us. From the moment we discussed it, It happened so quickly and I felt God there telling me that this is possible and this is what I needed to do.
I'm thankful. Very thankful.
I'm thankful to work for a company who takes the needs of their employees into consideration, for leaders who went above and beyond to accommodate my request to work part time, and for co-workers who understand and aren't judging me for this decision but are supportive.
I'm thankful for our family members who help out in so many ways.
I'm thankful for my husband who works hard to support his family, who is loving and kind, who makes me laugh everyday, and is my best friend.
I'm thankful for our son who makes each day bright and fills it with such wonder, who reminds me how fast we grow up, and teaches me something new everyday about a mother's love.
I'm thankful for our God - a powerful and mighty God who loves us and when we listen and follow Him we can do things we never thought possible.
