Everything Happens For A Reason

I truly believe everything happens for a reason.
While I may not understand it now,
one day I will. 
There are many things I don't understand right now.
But, even though it may be years down the road, 
I know I will look back and understand why that happened.

As I was driving home from work last night 
it dawned on me that my job is so much more than just a job.
There was a much bigger "reason" for it.
Not only did it get me out of the restaurant industry,
it has also been an increase in my income.
This in itself was a huge bonus.
The bigger bonus has been everything else this job has given me.

 But I don't doubt for one second that God knew
what he was doing when I got this job.
My boss/friend Kim has become a wonderful friend.
She may never know how much support and help she has given me this past year.
While dealing with and trying to navigate this infertility world,
she has been there every step of the way giving me the best advice and support.
I would honestly be lost and a hot mess if it were not for her.

Any time I am feeling down
I have the two most beautiful, sweet and funny girls to make me laugh.
That is my work day! 

I know for a fact I would be battling depression if 
I were still working in the restaurant industry and dealing with infertility.
I was hating life already when I was working at the restaurant,
so I can only imagine how negative I would be now.
Instead, I love my job and it brings me so much joy.
And I know that is greatly helping my outlook on life right now.
Travis has even commented on how much happier I am since I started nannying for them. 

Moral of this long blog post,
I know this family came into my life for a very important reason.
They may never realize all they have done for me.
But they will always have a huge place in my heart. 
I am so thankful to God because he knew what I was going to need far before I did,
and he gave me just that.

  1. OK, this just made me cry! Seriously, we feel the same way about you and I thank God every day for not only such a loving person who takes such great care of the girls, but a great friend as well. It's rare to find a *true* friend who "gets" you, and I am thankful every day for you and your friendship!

    Now, if only the girls were sweet and funny all the time... LOL.
