Second thing is another great bit of excitement! Remember when I told ya'll I was finally committing to this blogging thing? Well, we are absolutely pressing on with that and completely redesigning the page! I was incredibly blessed by an individual who payed for a full year of blog-hosting and I am currently blessed by a "big-little brother" who is helping me put the page together! So, keep an eye out for the domain change and all that jazz! :)
The third and probably most important update is that after prayerful consideration, the Husband and I have decided that I will be returning to work part-time. The opportunity has come up several times and this is the first time either one of us feel any peace about it. I had a very hard time at first, knowing that I was going to leave Aaliya for about 10hrs a week with someone else, but truthfully, Christ has shown me so much love and affection during this time that I feel completely at peace with all of it!
Something quite amazing that has come out of it is that I am now truly cherishing the time that I get with her. I took for granted the time I had with her and would become frustrated, more times than not when it came to her (very fiery and very feisty) personality and wouldn't really enjoy much the time I had for her.
Since this decision has been made I have read to her everyday, I have chosen to cuddle and play with her over housework and have learned the meaning of contenment (more of that at a later post). I can't describe it, but knowing that I have to return to work has actually made me a better mom. Who woulda thunk?
I look forward with sharing with you guys some of the lessons God has completely wrecked me with over the last few weeks. I look forward to talking to ya'll soon! =)
What's been going on with you? How have you been doing?
