Like many moms, sometimes I feel like all I do is work and no play. Just recently I've met a special person in my life. Not someone I thought I would be with, but through a mutual friend we have become really good friends. It's gotten a bit more serious which scares me a bit. But with everything good, comes change and I think that is what scares me the most. Change.
Being a single mom, you have more challenges. Balancing the work, kids, boyfriend and where is the time to do my painting? No where right now but, as I get older I find that the kids take care of themselves more, they don't need mom as much. Part of growing up.
Just recently I was approached by two emails that proposed job opportunities. I'm very excited but also nervous about the change and falling on my face. This is a career change and really important move for me. I want a career not just a job. Right not the job that I have is nice, but no room for moving up.
The two jobs presented to me there is a chance to have a career and more of a life with my family and the new man in my life. Excited? Yes. Scared - oh yeah!
My goal: to have more of a career where I work hard during the week, but able to enjoy life on the weekend. I want to get back to painting and start up the "ARTwalk" in Harrisburg, maybe offer Sat. classes to middle school or special groups. Still dreaming of that "Purple Barn" - yep. Still think about it.
We as I sign off todays blog. Think about the change you are going through and how you are handling it. Are you giving it to God? I know I have to, I can't make the decision on my own. I want to know that I'm going in the direction the Lord wants me to take. So where one door closes there will always be another that opens. And I have to remind myself everyday - God has the plan, not me. He knows what is good for me whether I agree or not.
