This summer has flown by in a flurry job changes, travel, and visits with family. God has been so good to us to give us exactly what we needed when we needed it. Over the last couple of months I've been having a very difficult time finding a good balance to my life. I had become increasingly uncomfortable with our childcare situation, and it affected every part of our collective family life. So, after much prayer and pleading, God opened the door for Jared to get promoted to an art director position at work... and I got to kind-of quit my job as a nurse for the oral surgeon I had been working for for two and a half years. And although I was sad to leave, I am so excited for Jared and the huge step this is for him... and I get to spend some much-needed time with my boys!
Also I've been having great bursts of clarity recently, like I've just woken up after sleeping for a long time. So much of how I saw myself was tied to what I did for a living, and my husband and kids got what was left over of me at the end of the day. My patience was always wearing thin, and I always felt like I could never quite get on track. I'm not perfect, and I have a long way to go, but I'm just so thankful for this opportunity to invest in my family! So, here's to new adventures of the mommying kind!
