Busy Being Blessed

The past few weeks have been an absolute whirl wind in our home!


A few weeks ago,  Domingo lost his job. My temporary panic was quickly replaced with peace at having him home more. After two years in a grueling, miserable schedule, there was nothing like the joy of having him home to be my team mate and enjoy family time together!


Despite the huge pay cut {losing more than half our income}, we remained positive that God had good things in store.


Boy, did He ever!!


While I continued to working on free lance projects as they were available, sometimes they just aren’t consistent. Despite working with multiple sites, most projects were just short term.


First, came the opportunity to work for another blogger on her site. It has felt like a perfect fit right from the start! Her site is all about boys and for boy moms, so that alone made me excited! 🙂


Next, I had the chance to work with another blogger on her site. Another perfect fit in my opinion!


Then, a third site contacted me about helping with their brand new site. Really?! Incredible!!


Just when I thought it couldn’t get any more exciting, my pastor asked me to help with administrative duties at our church. Another God-designed perfect fit for me.


I am starting to get in a new routine with all the excitement happening around here. I’m finally getting in a groove where I can accomplish projects around the house while fulfilling my commitments to others. I hope you’ll be patient with me as I settle in! I’m so blessed by these exciting opportunities and how well they fit my talents.


I can’t wait to see what God has next! This entire experience has been another reminder that God’s plans are always better than our own. What seems like a disaster can be turned into something that glorifies Him!


I’m so blessed that you are all along for the ride with me!
