I have many pictures and memories I want to share of our Christmas with family.. but there were two huge days in our family this week that I can hardly wait but to share.
Thursday was my last day of work! We’ve known for so many months that I would be laid off. But then I had to go through the months of knowing and waiting and seeing things slowly but surely end in my job of almost six years. It was an emotional end to a job I enjoyed and saying good-bye to many co-workers that feel more like a family then just “people you work with”. We were a very diverse team and I learnt many life lessons from those around me. But am I sad to say I’m unemployed? Not one bit. I came home that night to Ryan and two happy kiddos who made a banner: “ happy no more job day, mom” along with a delicious ice cream cake for our evening dessert:
The morning after our celebration Ryan and I were holding hands as we were back in the hospital for our level two ultrasound. We’ve had such peace in the past weeks. There was the scare of hearing about our babies’ cyst and what that could mean.. but then there was peace. Friday we sat watching as our third “surprise baby” was moving about inside me and were told there was no cyst. Not a trace. Baby is growing and beautiful. We are thankful.
For 2012 I know there will be changes. We anticipate wonderful things in store for our family.. but know through it all (the wonderful and the hard) we can trust Him. His ways are good.
Its a happy day. The first of our New Year.
