I have officially resigned from my position as pediatric surgery nurse practitioner at LSU! Whew! I had been having some anxiety over it off and on the past couple of weeks. But now that it's done, I feel relieved. I will be sad to leave. I enjoy the working with the people here and will miss their friendships. But I am excited to know that I will be doing God's will for my life and making Carter man really happy! Hopefully Theo will be happier too but I know he'll miss the extra money :).

God is so good though. Just this morning, I was sitting at my desk thinking "Ok, Lord, are you sure this is what I need to do? Who quits their good paying job in the middle of an economic crisis. I sure am giving up a lot of money". Well, lo and behold, in my e-mail box was a devotional e-mail I signed up to receive a couple of days ago. The first thing on the screen was:

"Do not overwork to be rich...For riches certainly make themselves wings." Proverbs 23:4-5

I just had to laugh. "Ok God, I hear ya!"

I must say being off with Carter for the past few days has really made me know in my heart of hearts that I want to be home with him. He is such a joy to have around. No one loves me quite the same way he does. Obviously my husband, my family and my friends all love me and I know that. But with Carter, it's just different...not necessarily better or worse but different. So that's that. I don't have any pictures to post because I accidentally let Carter spill a glass of water on our desktop at home and now the computer is fried and I can't upload any more pictures for now. Sorry :(
