I am just hours away from starting a brand new adventure in life. I have been a stay-at-home mom for eight years. Tomorrow morning, I am going back to work. Not only amd I going back to work...I am going back to work two and a half hours away from home.
I am super excited! I will be returning to a position I held prior to getting married. I'll be working with people I consider friends, and I'll be working for an organization that is highly-respected. They do really good work, so it will an honor to serve them.
On the other hand, I am sad to be leaving my children. We are a really close family. I enjoy being with my kids (as it should be!). It will be a difficult transition, but God opened this door wide, and we feel like we should step through. Trust is a word I am clinging to right now.
So tonight, I will kiss my children good night, tuck them in, and head out on my way. They will be in my every thought. I already have their artwork ready to decorate my office. I will surround myself with reminders of them until we can be together again. And I so look forward to the weekends when we can hold each other close and enjoy the time.
