In 19 days I will turn 30. Whaaat?! It’s hard to believe. I thank God that I have lived to see 30.
My absence on blogging was mainly due to my job – working long hours, then cut backs, and my commute… it made certain things hard to commit to, but it all worked out as it was supposed to.
There’s a place nearby that I’ve been checking out for employment for several years and one afternoon I looked at their site to see the perfect job for me was open. More or less the same exact thing I was doing, but it also allowed me to learn and grow in areas that I knew of and didn’t do day to day. It took 7 business days for two interviews (phone and on site visit) and the job offer to take place!
I accepted a new job, planned my first vacation to Disney World to celebrate my 30th birthday two months early, had time to shake off the old job and get excited for the new job, and then started my new job.
2015 had started with excitement and sadness. I was beyond thrilled for a new calendar year and what it will bring, what God has in store and all the exciting things He has for me.
On November 28th, 2014 my mom had received a call from my dad stating that my younger brother, Joe, had passed. It was something that wasn’t expected.
The last 5 months of my life have been a whirlwind. In some ways it still is, but not as much.
The passing of my brother was quite the learning experience. With friends checking in and stopping by, it was brought up that I wasn’t blogging and that after this experience I will blog more. I’m not blogging now because my brother died, but for several reasons: I have the time to dedicate to this process, I have less deadlines and stress, time for adventures, laughter, and memories, and I have a story to tell… testimonies to share. There’s someone who needs to read about my brother, who needs to read about my mourning, who needs to read about how all this had happened, but I was still thanking God.
I have parts of my life that needs sharing.
so, let the sharing begin!
