For the last 7 years, I have worked with an amazing team of professionals and an inspiring and special group of young adults. In February, I submitted my leave of absence request to the district, and I am now on a journey of discovery and adventure–that is what Living4Today is all about!
Just after submitted the request for a leave, I learned that my position was actually being cut to half time–which affirmed my decision. And, our entire building is being moved around this summer, so here is a photo of packing time on Friday! With the ruptured disc I have been dealing with since February, it required more planning on my part. Strategic placement of the boxes, movers to help at the office, and a friend at home to help me unload, as I am not allowed to BLT (bend, lift over 20#, or twist). I also was switching from one borrowed automatic transmission car to another, so I was in three vehicles in one day! What a blessing, though–to have people willing to trade vehicles, be my muscles, and support my healing and health. It shows me how often I rely on my own strength, when there are plenty of willing people around. A good lesson on many levels.

So, this is my last week of work, and next year I have a number of possibilities, and the one I am most excited about is chasing after God even more. In my professional endeavors, how I spend my time, community, and in relationships.
I hope your Memorial Day was a meaningful one, each year I give thanks for all of our servicemen and women–present and past. Your sacrifice is always appreciated!! Godspeed to you all today and in the coming week.
