The begining of everything

Tomorrow everything changes.
Tomorrow I take the first steps to begin my career in the beauty industry.
Tomorrow is going to be a challenge but one I have been looking forward to for a long time.
Tomorrow is the first day of everything!
Today I have been a crazy person, running around trying to make sure everyone has what they need for the coming week.
Trying to explain to Sweet Pea why Granna is now picking her up and how she will have to be brave and (gasp) walk to the flag pole in front of school for pick up.
she cried.
Today, I am looking for the 'perfect' outfit for my first day.
I'm planning meals, doing laundry and trying to rest a bit too.
Today I am basking in the little things and trying not to let tomorrow worry me.

I have to admit I'm a little nervous.
Not so much about the actual job because I'm pretty confident that I can do a great job.
No I'm nervous about how my family will adjust to this change.
We have spent months praying for a job for me.
Now that it happened and it's here, are we ready?
There will be no more baking and a movie Thursdays with Sweet Pea.
No more Mommy whipping up a gourmet dinner by 6pm (I'll just be leaving work)
No Mommy getting Sweet Pea up and together in the morning
( I will have left before she gets up)
Not a lot of quality time in evening as everything will have to be prepared for the next day.
I can feel the lump rising in my throat.
It's a transition period and those are always hard.
I know it will get easier.
I know my family will be okay and no worse for the wear but I wouldn't be a mother
(or soon -to-be wife)
if I wasn't the least bit concerned about their adjustment.
But I am ready.
I asked for this
the Lord answered my prayers
and I am ready to answer the call.
I am blessed to be able to have this opportunity and can't wait to see how it all pans out.
So tomorrow, while you go about your regular day, if you happen to think of me,
please say a prayer for us.
We are going through a change and could use your support.
Thanks!!!
I will let you know how it goes!

  1. I will definitely be thinking about you tomorrow! I think 'change' in itself is a hard thing to grasp but you and your family will be for the better because of it. You and your daughter will find new ways to spend "quality" time and there will no doubt be a new appreciation for each other. Enjoy your first day tomorrow! I'm sure you'll do a bang-up job!! =)
