Changes

My little family is going to be going through some major changes in the next few months or so and we could definitely use some prayers.

David's job is basically dissolving, and while we have no idea when exactly this is going to happen (#5,067,848 on my list of things that irritate me about his company), it will be sometime in the not-too-distant future. Suffice to say, he will hopefully be getting a new job somewhere sometime soon. So will I most likely, something I'm not exactly sad about, as while I love working with my client (a lady with Down Syndrome), my actual job is really, really not making me happy! I've never really liked either of my jobs that I've had since college and I really need a good change to happen in my career...even if that is deciding to go back to school, because my current career path is not even remotely what I want to be doing. Life is too short to spend 8 hours a day hating your job (though to clarify, when I'm at work I try to make the best out of the situation and stay positive for my client).

And all this change after we'd just spent the last 2 weeks seriously talking about buying a house somewhere, grrrrr. So now we have a bunch of hard decisions to make about moving and where to apply for jobs, what kinds of jobs to apply for, buying a house, maybe going back to school. It's just a lot to decide on and think about! Most of this stuff we have been talking about for a while now, but this situation has just thrown it all into the forefront a little faster than we'd thought!

So if any of you have any prayers you can spare for us I/we would appreciate it!

I'll be praying! What about Spokane?!

Would you mind sending me your email address sometime? I have no idea why I don't have it...mine is longingtobelovely@gmail.com. Thanks!

And you're right, life is too short to spend time hating your job. Good luck! love, Amy

I haven't checked blogs for a while. I thought I would see if you had returned from your cruise and how that experience all went, and I find not only cruise info, but news on big changes. Ah change... always so hard. Thanks for sharing and asking for specific prayer. Honored to pray for you. ~Sue
