Road trip! I’m taking my mom to visit her sister in Omaha. I gassed up (the car–stop it!), got the car washed, programmed the GPS, bought snacks and bottled water, made sure I had all my medications, and we took off.
My trusty steed, all polished and vacuumed up, with my corny little mascot in the back window.
I have wonderful news, as well–I got a job! After what I truly feel is one of the most stunning summers in history (truly a gift from God), I’m starting back at my beloved Concordia in August. I got a job in the campus pastors’ office–a position I have coveted in all the time (12 years) I’ve been working there.
I hardly think it could have worked out better–makes me truly believe that it wasn’t just coincidence. I lost my job just at the beginning of the gardening season, spent a truly amazing couple of months drinking in the best weather I can remember, spending lots of time not only working in the gardens but also sitting on deck appreciating the view. . . just to be able to be employed again come the fall.
Life is good.
