YAY! We didn't get a Friday update last week because the woman who sends them was out on a medical leave. But as far as I'm aware she's back now and I'm definitely expecting an update today. It's only 9:15 here at the moment and the updates don't come until the afternoon though, so I've got a while to wait. I'll keep you posted!
So what I have to talk about today is change. I feel like there are big changes brewing in our family right now. For my LDS friends, last week I was called to be the Relief Society Secretary. Translated for my non-LDS friends, I've been asked to volunteer as the Secretary for a church womens organization. I'm excited to do it and I think it's going to be fun, but at the moment it's a little overwhelming. The woman that I'm replacing came over a few days ago with a big cardboard box full of things to hand over to me. When someone comes to your house and hands you a cardboard box full of binders and paper and information, you know you're going to be busy for a while. :)
It will be good and once I get the hang of it I'm actually really going to enjoy it. But the next month is going to be a little stressful I think, trying to get it all figured out. I've got a lot to learn.
The other change is something I can't really discuss at the moment, and I hate not being able to discuss something! I'm an open book and I don't hold things back very well. There's something brewing at the moment around here. It doesn't involve the adoption and it's not a bad thing, it's just a change.
But knowing that I've got the secretary job to figure out this month, we've got another change going on and this may be our referral month, it's a busy time around here and my brain is working on overtime to process it! I tend not to handle change very well, so I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. Not necesarily in a bad way because none of it is bad change, I just see our lives charging forward so fast right now and sometimes I just want to put the brakes on and tell it to slow down while I process it.
Life is all about change though, I guess. I tend to resist change at first, even if it's a good change, but I eventally adapt. I like my comfort zone. Stepping out of that always throws me for a loop a little.
Anyway, life is moving forward here. Hopefully that will include a referral in the very near future. If our lives are all about change right now, we might as well throw the referral into the mix! Bring it on!
