God's Plans

Jeremiah 29:11 says "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  When I read this I am reminded each day of God's promise.  So no matter what my circumstances are right now I am believing that better days are just ahead.   I see myself staying home and raising my daughter, educating and nurturing her.  When its time for her to attend school I see  her in a facility where the teachers actually teach instead of disciplining.  I see myself being able to afford her college tuition to any college of her choice.  All this is possible because God said it.

Returning to Work

After 14 months of maternity leave, I am returning to work.  I must say these months were sometimes filled with uncertainty, and there were times when my faith was put to test.  I guess the bright side to returning to work is the flexibility.  I work in the airline industry as a flight attendant and my 10 plus years have me at an advantage.  The thing I dislike most is the time I'll spend away from my daughter.  She is 10 months old and I was able to see every milestone up to that point.  She has one tooth and one growing beside it.  I heard her say "Daddy" and "Momma" for the first time.  I've even seen her take a few steps. Now that I'm returning to work I just hope that I won't miss out when she finally takes her steps without the help of me or her father.  I want to be there to cheer her on.
