Thankful Thursday: The One Where I Ramble...

Last year, I kept a log on Facebook of things I was thankful for each day in November. Thankfulness grew in my heart throughout the month and I was determined to keep a Gratitude journal in 2012. Then life happened, and I didn’t follow through. (Imagine that!)

This year I think I will keep track of my thoughts here and I am sure my Facebook friends will be grateful that I have chosen to leave them out of this! It goes without saying that I have much to be thankful for: a new home, my wonderful family, and so much more.

This week I am thankful for timing and being prepared. When I left work for maternity leave, I was uncertain if I would be able to return to the role I was in with a newborn. On Monday of this week, I interviewed for a supervisor position and will be returning to work on two weeks earlier in order to fill the vacant position. While the hours will still be long, and the stress high, this position is much more predictable and conducive to having a newborn at home. I am excited to be returning to work in a new role and thankful in the timing of the opening. I am thankful for my direct supervisor for preparing me for this new role and the mentoring she provided over the past seven months.

I have mixed emotions about leaving Millie and going to work, but I know that she will be in good hands while I’m away and I know that her daddy is close by even when I am at the office up the mountain.

Aren’t they the cutest?!?!
