Being Real!

I was trying to spell a word that was just outside of what spell correct can pick up with my very limited spelling skills and I thought to myself..."Self just be real"

I like to think that I am a pretty real person, but there is room for improvement always.  One thing I have really tried hard to do the past few years is when I tell someone I am going to pray for them that I actually do it.  Something I am a bit ashamed of is I will stop right in that moment and say a heartfelt prayer, but then move on with my life.  I may not even pray about it again or follow up to see how the person is doing after praying for them.  How heartfelt is that?

So tonight I write and I want to be more intentional with my prayers and love for others.  Life is only as busy as we make it!  There is always time to stop and pray or love on someone.  If there isn't that what is the purpose in life?

Well after a quick trip to Boston I turned around and jumped on a plane to Michigan the home town of Derek Jeter Kalamazoo.  Nice to have such exciting opportunities in my life but now I am tired, very emotional, and have some big decisions to make in the very near future. I really enjoyed my trip to Kalamazoo it felt like going home.  I love the idea of moving out of the city and hopeful that I could be a home owner at some point in my life.
That being said it is going to be something that has happened a lot faster then I planned.  Which in all honesty is a good thing so I don't over think it too much.
The next few weeks could prove to be interesting and exciting for me!

Bean Town

What a view! What an adventure?  Interviewing on the East Coast for an Amazing job.  I would almost go as far as to say my "dream" job, but how do you pack up and leave everything you know.  Ok when I was 24 I did it but at 40 with a 2 year old doesn't it seem a bit crazy? My belief is that God has a plan and I May not understand it but he could be opening doors I never imagined!  Doing my best to live for the day and trust that all will work out as planned!

Boston, Michigan, Seattle, San Francisco....OH MY!!!

Once again it has been forever since I have blogged. It is safe to say that the last four years of my life have been a little crazy and while I probably should have documented them I didn't. So now after going to Africa, having a child, being laid off from my job, moving and working a crappy job for a year, going back to the job I was laid off from as a contractor I find myself in an exciting phase of my life. Next week I will be off on a series of job interviews to see where my next adventure might take me. It is a bit scary and very exciting to see where this next chapter of my life takes me. The love of my life turns 3 in November and I can't believe how fast she is growing up. I hope whatever change takes place I can get her settled and some sort of routine in her life.
