Well, vacation time is over, and it is time to get back to the real world.
I have lots of decisions that I need to make in this next month. Our family structure is changing drastically and so I now get to set new boundaries and actually figure out what my role is going to be.
I have been the primary person, available to help my folks, but with the family structure changing, I now have the opportunity to decide to what extent I want to be available.
Is it time for me to think about getting a "real" job? In getting a "real" job, do I have the ability to think about relocating? I know that in the next few weeks, I need to do alot of praying and hopefully God will tell me what I need to do. I will also spend time talking with my folks, to help assess what they think their needs will be and to what extent they will need my help. I also have a Dr's appt scheduled for a complete physical at the end of the month, with minor things prior to that, so that we can see to what extent I can "dream".
I guess I am just at a point that I am thinking about me - please don't call me selfish - I've had that enough - but as more people come available to help, maybe I have the opportunity to do something for me. Maybe I can find a dream and go after it - maybe I can "get a life" as so many people tell me I need to do.
It will definately be an interesting month, filled with lots of decisions, lots of prayers for guidance, and hopefully being able to figure out what I am going to do with the "rest of my life." If you want to - I would appreciate the prayers of others.
Until the next post.....
