Looking Back

So I was looking through my old phone, clearing off texts and pictures so my mom could have it all cleaned and like-new and I got to see a beautiful picture of my year.

Wow.  Really, WOW!  I say this a lot, but if you would have told me what my life would look like a year from October 11, 2010 there is no way I would have believed you were talking about me!

To start, my Mom began her first Chemotherapy treatment one year from yesterday.  Even my Mom and Dad had forgotten that until I reminded them tonight.  When my Mom was first diagnosed with Cancer I thought my world was ending.  My Mom is my best friend and I talk to her several times a day.  To think about her having Cancer was just not even something I could comprehend.  When they first found it there were a million questions and a million unknowns and not a lot of positive answers.

Her Cancer changed my world FOREVER.

I looked at everything differently.

To start, about 2 weeks later my boyfriend proposed!  He became my fiance and two short months later we were married.  Yup, you read that right, 2 months later!

boyfriend-->finace-->hubby= 2 months of craziness

I began training to take over my mother in-laws Flower and Wedding Business in October as well.  I am one year in and loving ever second I get to work with beautiful flowers and be a part of other’s special events.

The way I spend my time changed dramatically too.  Commuting over 3 hours a day for work had to stop.  I began to look for a new job and prepare myself to leave a job I had thought I would be in for many many years.  It took me 7 months to prepare my heart for this move.

Then, I thought I was moving to a perfect job.  ( I wrote about it here )

Turns out, while that job was a good learning experience, like most learning experiences, it turned out not so perfect.  Funny how that works, huh.  I did however meet some of the most encouraging people I have come across in my professional career and feel that many of my dreams for ministry and my future were confirmed.  I need confirmation a lot since most people think my dreams/goals are crazy/impossible.  To them I say, look where God has brought me so far, they said this was impossible too!!

Now I face another new beginning.

door to a new beginning

A new job, year 2 of learning to take over Petals by Candy and soon another possible move.  But, best of all, year two of marriage to the best MAN in the whole world!!!
