For those of you who check my blog on a semi-often basis, I bet you are wondering if I gave up or quit the blogging business. I think this has to be the longest break I've taken since I've started. There is much that I want to blog, but just not enough hours in the day to do it.
Let me catch you up on where I've been and what I've been up to.
I received a call last Friday night stating the hours at work were becoming scarcer and scarcer. Since I am a flex employee with no benefits and no commitments, I am the first one they look at cutting when the patient census declines. Literally, on Friday evening I did not know when I would be heading back into work or when I would next get a paycheck. Devastated at first, I then realized when one door closes, another opens. I began looking at the positive aspects of the situation and began contemplating all of the things I could do in my "spare time."
As many of you may know, to supplement my income, I began a home based business just recently. It involves telecommunications and I believe will be successful for me once I can get things off the ground. This new found amount of "time" that I now had allowed me to place more effort towards the business. Of course, this is a step out of my comfort zone but I believe I can do it - it is a matter or me putting my mind to it. So to put a quick plug in for my business - anybody out there who is up for a cell phone renewal - drop me a comment or give me a call. We can renew your contract through my business and save you money while doing it - all while maintaining the convenience of your current plan. That's all I'm going to say about that right now.
Please know that I am seeking out moments in my day where I can steal away and blog my little heart (such as now - was up before 0600 to do Bible study, email, bills, twitter, blog, business stuff, laundry, etc - but I imagine my children will be starting to stir soon.) 24 hours just doesn't seem like enough. It is a difficult and challenging time for our family right now - a time of concern and uncertainty. Through it all, our God remains faithful. I had a moment - several actually since I'm not working - to think about where we are as a family right now. Although things are not perfect, we are still blessed. We have always been blessed. We have so much to be thankful for. I will continue to praise God "in the storm." I know there is a light out there - I will hold true to God's promises and realize this is only one of those trials that I/we must endure. On that note, I'm off to fold a load of laundry and start another and maybe just maybe sneak in one more cup of coffee before Mattea comes stumbling downstairs demanding breakfast.
