As if this week wasn't emotionally draining as it already was, today I got a phone call that induced a whole other kind of flood of emotions. Brett's property manager has accepted a promotion, meaning her position is available. Brett, being the assistant manager, is really the ideal candidate. He has been there almost two years and has done a great job. He recently got a glowing review that stated that he is completely ready for a promotion. However, per company protocol, the position has to be posted within the company and other candidates will and already have interviewed.
This is the phone call I have been waiting to receive for a long time, however, both Brett and I are kind of overwhelmed. With this promotion, I could have the opportunity to stay home full time with Emersyn and do real estate on the side. This is my hearts desire and has been since I became a mother. This would also let Brett work M-F, another great opportunity for our family. We could start going to church again on Sunday mornings, Brett wouldn't have to miss so many birthday parties and family functions, etc.
I am so nervous to hope, to believe. I need to though. God has been so good to me so far in my life and no matter what happens with this opportunity, He is still good. I get so used to encouraging others to trust in Him, believe that He wants the best for our lives....yet, when I am called to practice what I preach so to speak, I often have those same worries and fears that plague many of the friends I try to encourage.
Brett will be interviewing either Monday or Tuesday. I would appreciate your prayers. The timing of all this with what's going on with my grandma is a little unsettling emotionally like I said, but no matter what, God is good and I truly want His will for my life, even if *gulp* that means I have to work a little longer. I am so so blessed. Please pray for favor for Brett within his company. Thank you!!!
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.
