As you know from visiting my blog lately, I've been traveling back and forth a lot to my mom's in Iowa, due to a personal issue going on with my daughter. When everything first happened back in August, I started looking for a job in that area, with no luck. I was patient, and kept my eyes open, even though there wasn't much in that area. Recently an opportunity presented itself. I applied, had two phone interviews, and then a face to face interview the last time I was in the area for court. On Thursday of last week, I got the call, offering me the position and I accepted it. It's a much needed blessing, and I'm so thankful to Him for helping me find something. Not only is it a senior level management position, but it's also more money, and only a 10 minute drive from my mom's house. I couldn't have asked for better. I truly believe that by leaving it in His hands, he provided for me and my family in a way I couldn't have imagined. God is so good!
On Friday I gave my two weeks notice to the company I have been with for almost 10 years. To say they were shocked, is an understatement, but everyone understood and is 100% supportive of my decision. They have been so wonderful to me, and my family, not only during these past couple months of turmoil but always when there has been something I've needed to attend to, and it has been my absolute pleasure to have been a part of their "family" for so long. It's bittersweet, to say the least. I've established many wonderful friendships and business relationships, and everyone will be greatly missed. My last day with them is the 21st of December. I start my new job on December 31st.
For this reason, my blog will be dormant until after the new year. I have one post scheduled for the 12th, but then I won't have anything else until the first week of January. I hate the packing and moving process, but this time I'm almost happy to do everything I need to do, because of the circumstances. I look forward to being able to provide the support my daughter and mother need, full time, and I'm also excited to continue my career with a new company.
I would appreciate any prayers or well wishes you can send my family's way, as it will definitely be a crazy few weeks, and an adjustment period for all of us. I just hope I can do everyone proud and continue to do my thing, without issue.
I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and safe and Happy New Year, spent with loved ones and friends! May 2013 be filled with many wonderful blessings for you and your families.
