Where I’ve Been

I can’t believe how much time has passed since my last post.  Life has gotten busy with a recent job changed, and as my husband and I sat down on the couch tonight he asked if I had blogged recently.  It’s not that I had forgotten about my blog, but when I’ve thought about it, I just haven’t been capable of blogging at that moment.  I would tell myself I’d write that night, but that would turn into tomorrow night, and now we are finally here and I’m sorry for such a long delay between posts.

The truth is I’ve never been a career minded person, so this a new road I’m traveling and it is both scary and exciting.  I have a job now that demands my full attention, and I never thought I would enjoy a job that demands so much.  But part of me really does enjoy it which has really surprised me.  I’ll write more about this change soon, but unfortunately I need to head to bed now.

So I’ll get back to my regular blogging schedule this week, and will tell you more about the surprises life has brought my way.  As usual, it seems when I think I have things all figured out… I learn how little I actually know.

Prayers Lifted Up

An old high school friend of mine posted some news on Facebook tonight that has really touched my heart so I’m sharing the news with you.  Mrs. Jeffrey Kocab has delivered a stillborn baby girl today.  As someone who has gone through infertility my heart broke at this news.  I don’t know Mrs. Kocab, but like any woman longing for a child I can only try to imagine the heartbreak this brings.  As I began to learn a little more of the story, I sit here here now in disbelief.  Mrs. Kocab is the wife of Officer Jeffrey Kobab, who was killed in the line of duty just a few short weeks ago on June 29, 2010.  He was only 31 years old.  I can imagine Mrs. Kocab feels as if her whole world has been taken from her.  Please lift her up in your prayers tonight, and if you would like to learn more about Officer Kocab you can go to his memorial page using the link below.
