This week started off with an epic bang. I'm sort of riding a weird high right now. Basically I got a huge promotion at work. And it kind of rocks. And even though it's taking me down a completely different path than I ever saw my life going down, it's good. Really good actually.

I've been kind of treading water per se these days. I have a whole post about this in the works but I've been dealing a lot with feeling "left behind" as I watch so many people make huge life decisions while I feel stuck. A conversation with my pal Whitney, gave me a bit of clarity on some big things and I feel much better. The moment I took a step back, put forward a bit more faith, and let go of the reins a little... a promotion fell in my lap. Somebody has a sense of humor.

Speaking of that Somebody, lately I've been feeling more and more that I'm missing a big calling in my life. So I finally signed up to volunteer with the youth at our church. Middle school age kids/early high school have my heart. Especially young girls. I just hope for so much for them and I just want such great things for them and my heart is burdened over the difficulties they face daily. However, having a heart for them isn't worth anything if you aren't ministering to them. So I signed up. Now I just wait to hear about my position.

It was warm for a few days a couple of weeks ago. Oh, and it stopped raining for half a second. This has been the longest, coldest, wettest winter ever. I am SO over it. Of course the second the sun decided to come out for a few minutes, we headed outside. Unfortunately the warm weather only lasted about two days and then the rain came back and the temperatures dropped. It was in the 40's here today. The week before Easter. And while I know other places are even colder, the 40's in South Carolina this late in the game is bizarre. WHERE IS MY WARM WEATHER?!?

My sweet tiny baby girl will be three a week from tomorrow. Hold me.

I'm beyond in denial over that. I have done nothing for her party. Nothing. Oh wait, I got the invites out. Today. Nothing like waiting til the last minute.

Things are good over here. We're just hanging out, doing life, and trying to survive toddlerhood. Which is harder that it should be. Truth.

Oh, and a reminder, this blog like most others out there is making the switch to Bloglovin' so be sure and follow along. I imported all of mine from Google Reader and then decided to do a big clean out which felt amazing. I never could figure out how to do that on Reader. One point in Bloglovin's favor from this girl.

Congratulations on your promotion!! That's awesome!! Isn't it funny how He really does have the best timing? I have the hardest time letting go of control, but usually when I do, everything falls into place. Can't wait to hear more about your position with the church, if you are able to talk about it. I've been wanting to volunteer at our church, just need to figure out in what area.
P.S. I cleaned out the blogs I read from Bloglovin too & it felt good! :)
