I don't have to lesson plan for school this summer!
I don't have to do any summer professional development
I don't have to worry about what room I'm in or preparing everything for that room!
I am free!
I was depressed
AND NOW I AM NOT!
I am laughing and giggling and just all around in a much better mood!
I feel young again!
I no longer feel like I'm forty!
And though this freedom comes with it's own challenges...
It's so nice to not have to worry about Teaching!
For now I am planning Children's Church Events and dancing, and doing my side gigs, and trying to find a job!
It's a wonderful wonderful feeling!
Even my husband is like, "It's so nice to see you again!"
Now we are just waiting for God to reveal where we are to go next! We have the whole world and our whole lives in front of us!
We want to go where God want's us to go! So we are waiting.
I am allowing myself to use this limbo time to heal and bounce back.
Not really rushing anywhere.
Getting to spend quality time with God.
And helping spoil my husband.
Vacations (and in my case, stay-cations) are a wonderful and much needed thing. It's like a mental nap that God has given me!
And naps are important! They are in the Bible!
One time the prophet Elijah was cranky and was like, "It's not worth it God. Just take me now!" And God was all, "Here. Eat this food and take a nap." And after Elijah woke up he was all, "I feel better, thanks." And decided humanity wasn't so bad after all!
Times of rest are very important.
Even God rested on the 7th day!
So take sometime and rest.
