Life lately has been moving along at a pace that really seems frantic to say the least! Mom will be leaving tomorrow for the west coast to apply for a teaching position with several colleges. I am hoping and praying that the Lord provides her with work. Since dad has been gone; mom has been all over the place with her emotions. At times I have wanted to just retreat from it all but I can't....who else would be there~ So in the end although I will miss her and I know she will miss us it would be a very good thing. She has always enjoyed teaching and her students always love her and her teaching style. She is going to be staying with a missionary couple in their guest house. She'll have company when she wants and space when she needs it. We will be pet sitting while she is away and I will be tending to dad's garden. His garden is looking beautiful with the flowers blooming. I have been on the mend at home. God is good and continues to meet our every need. Tom is doing very well at his job~ his co-worker and bosses all like him. He has always been a people person. I was forced to resign because as a new employee I only had so much leave...I must say I have had a struggle with feeling like a failure but I keep reminding myself that God is in control. I left on good terms; so who knows what might happen. For now I am trying to be content in knowing that my husband, children and home are being well taken care of~I continue to pray for the kids as there have been so many different transitions but I am seeing God work in them all. Mandy will be officially graduated in June...where did all the time go? Austin and Gabby will be studying through the summer with my help. I am hoping to get away with the girls next week to visit a dear friend who will be taking Amanda's senior pictures. Can't wait! It will be our first road trip together in over a year. So many changes these last several months but God continues his faithfulness to me.
