I can't believe it's almost July. June has been a whirlwind. We spent 10 days on vacation in North Carolina - I'm very blessed to have a very generous family that finances the entire trip, every year. As some of you know, I am two hours away from my family (excluding the ones that live with me of course!). It is so wonderful that once a year, I get to spend an entire week with my parents, siblings, cousins, aunt, uncle, grandpa, and grandma. We make so many memories, and the kids get to enjoy their family and get lots of love, and sun, and sand, and ice cream.
As you may remember, June is also my last month of week of work. Today I sent emails to all of my clients letting them know that I am leaving. My clients sent really nice, encouraging notes - and I'm so thankful for that! I can't believe that I have less than a week until I am a full-time stay-at-home mom! I know this week I'm going to have to spend a lot of time on follow-up work and trying to resolve some issues, but the end result will be so worth it (and, I really like my co-workers, so I want the transition to be as easy as possible).
On my first weekday unemployed, I have to get a root canal. Unfortunately, the nerve structure in my tooth is complex (I'm sure that's not the correct terminology), so I have to go to a specialist. I was told by our new dentist that insurance will cover 80%; we researched the average price and determined that I'd have to pay several hundred dollars (in addition to the $300-$500 that we will have to pay for the crown that goes on the tooth). Today I got a call that we will have to pay $0 for the root canal - thank you Lord!
It's amazing that even after we made the decision to quit my job, I was still doubting that we made the right decision. However, God has taken care of us so much that it is evident to us that this is what our family needs to do at this time. I really am so blessed and I am so thankful for all that God has done for us. I look forward to seeing what else he has in store for us.
