I’m a fairly new blogger. I’m still not sure what I will be discussing here, but I feel the undeniable need to ramble on about life in some forum. I suppose I should share a little about who I am, so here goes.
After about ten years teaching standard and advanced placement high school English and leadership in the traditional classroom, I find myself in my fifth year as a virtual school counselor. I absolutely love my job and enjoy getting to know students from all over the state. Of course my life is interesting, since this is an occupation which has catapulted me into the tumultuous world of teenage angst, apathy and the search for identity. My new job came with a freedom and professional respect I have never before experienced in education, I feel so blessed.
My husband and I have been married for 28 years (and counting) and both of our children graduated from college over the past year. In this new season in my life I find myself trying to figure out who I am, like attempting to gather water in my hands, only to find it all pouring through inept fingers. Life is changing so quickly, and not exactly in the way that I planned. God has a way of reminding us of how futile our own plans are, and He does so in the most ironic and surprising ways. I guess life would be pretty boring otherwise!
I hope you enjoy reading about my experiences in a world that isn’t always fair, a family that is far from normal and a God bigger than it all.
