My Dream Job

So some of you have heard, I was let go from my job yesterday. It was not something that I even remotely saw coming. Just a couple of weeks ago my boss gave me a small bonus and told me that I was doing a great job, so as you can imagine I was floored when I walked into work and was told that they were letting me go. Anyway...whats done is done and there is nothing that I can do about it. However there are some things that I have learned from this, and that is what my dream job be a mother.

When Scott and I first started dating I didn't want to have kids...I wanted to have a career. Scott kept trying to convince me that it was going to be great having kids and I just didn't want that. Slowly job after job I have realized that being a mother is the only thing that I want to do. For those mothers out there who are thinking that I have no idea of how hard it is to be a mom, I do. I see my own mom, my sister, and friends. I understand that it is not going to be the easiest job, and that there are going to be days where you want to pull your hair out, but at the end of the day you have a gift of a human life that loves you. When they hurt themselves, they want their mom, when they are experience something new, they want to tell their mom. How great would that be? To know that you could never be "let go" from being a mom (unless you really are messed up and do something that is super bad) It may not help pay the bills, but what a blessing it is to be a mom.

So until the Lord's timing and our timing are the same and we are blessed with children, I guess I am back on the hunt for a job. I guess we will see what the Lord has in store for us this time! But if any of you know of any jobs that are available in Utah County or in Salt Lake...our course I would appreciate a shout out!
