Ok about the new JOB!!!

Ok about the new job. Remember back several post when I said I was going to sub for a friend and I was going to be with 8 - 3 year olds. Well the Methodist church in my hometown has a very large , very successful Mothers Day out and Pre-K program. My friend Kathy a girl I grew up with is pregnant with her 3rd child and is due at the end of April and one day she asked me if I would do her maternity leave. Well before I go any further I have to be really honest and tell all of you that I have always had some kind of aversion to working in that field. Where I come from , we put 'em to sleep and fix'em!!! ( I worked in the O.R.) . I love children , I need children in my life but I just never wanted to work in daycare, pre-k, preschool, mothers day out, anything like that. I always admired the people who did , but I always felt it was not for me.

Well apparently God had other plans because he just kept putting this thing out there for me to think about and on thursday I decided to commit myself from May all the way to the end of August. I will work Monday -Wednesday, 8:30-4:00 , and Thursday till 2:30. I will have 18- 3 year olds, having at least 8 everyday that I am there. And I might add that I have already gotten attached to the majority of them, it seems as if they are thereapy for me or something because I have such a sense of calm about me that I just can't explain.And the reasons for taking this job, you ask??? First of all, we could use the extra money for our China travel, Second, I am hoping that it will be a very constructive way of passing the time during the wait that seems to be really hard at times. And I know there are some friends and relatives thinking, what about the lake?? Well it is so laid back that I can get a sub any time I need one. It just seems like a no brainer to me. If I went back to the OR , all of them are 45 to 60 minutes away and my gas bill would eat up my paycheck!!! And to top it all off , Astrud can rack up some community service hours by helping out a few days a week. So there you have it! And if you wondering what the picture means, well this Saturday all of us had a 5 hour training Education seminar and the minute I sat down this was the first document in our booklet!!!! My friend Kathy and I just looked at each other and I said; THAT'S A GOD WINK!!!!!

I think that's pretty neat...God has his way of showing us things, even when we try like heck to avoid it! (I'm also glad you cleared that up...I was thinking you might have meant about taking on the job during Kathy's maternity leave...but wasn't quite sure and thought I was missing something...you know how clueless I can be, only at times!!) I love you and think it's great!

that's a pretty cool photo. Good Luck with your new job. I don't think I could do it. Working in the church nursery every couple of weeks is enough for me. :-)

I'll have to get hopping on the three word thing
