Yesterday I learned that my former employer decided not to give me a part time job as proposed/requested. It's been an interesting 24 hours processing this decision. Though not thrilled about it, we're choosing to look at it as one of a door opening instead of closing. We are confident this is the beginning of a new adventure - one in which God has something just perfect waiting for us.
As a good friend reminded me, it's not like I was just let go (which is kind of how it feels) to sit at home and twiddle my thumbs. No, I have a beautiful, growing daughter to hang out with and teach all about this world. So for now, when people ask me what I do, I will confidently say, "I am a CEM - Chief Executive Mama!". I will likely do some work on the side as an independent contractor in order to fund our adventures (so let me know if you have any research/project management/writing/marketing gigs...). Or maybe pursue whatever other crazy dreams enter my mind!
