I have been spending time with mom in Blairsville, with Haley and Austin in Warner Robins, with Hadrian in Americus, and with Hannah and my sister/brother-in-law in Snellville. I have been praying for over a year now about where to start over when the time came to start over. When my nest became empty, I knew that I was headed somewhere . . . I just didn't know where. I knew I had to be patient and just let things unfold. Oh, how hard it was to sit back and trust that everything would be okay when there was no clear plan . . . at least I had no idea what the plan was. But, God is revealing it now that it is time.
I spent some time with my mom and explored the possibilities of moving back home to Blairsville and living with her. I really enjoyed my time there, and it felt so right being back home. And, when I was staying in Warner Robins, it felt so right being there as well. Time with the kids is always great. While I was enjoying a lot of time to myself and exploring my options, I was feeling more confused than ever . . . where should I go? where should I live? what should I do? My heart felt really torn between going back to Blairsville since mom is alone now OR going to Warner Robins where there is better opportunity to rebuild my life. All I could do was talk to God and put it all in His hands. And wait.
In these tough economic times, I knew finding a job could be a challenge. I started applying for jobs in the north Georgia mountain area and also in the Macon/Warner Robins area. A lot of people have been praying for me to find a job . . . and not just any job. I needed to find a job with a company that could offer me a career opportunity with excellent benefits. Being single, and needing health insurance, I feel that right now the benefits are actually more important than the pay.
Well, after two months of gypsy life, I finally found the opportunity that I was looking for. I have accepted a job with Geico in Macon. Geico is the largest employer in Macon, and they are known to be a great company to work for. They have the best benefits out there! And, they have me on a career path that I feel is promising for advancement and future compensation. So, Macon, it is! The prayers worked! Thank you very much to all who prayed about this! I feel very blessed to be offered this position.
I knew that once the job was in place, the rest will hopefully follow. The first big piece of the puzzle has been solved. And, I am living with Haley and Austin for now . . . until I feel ready to get a place of my own OR until they kick me out . . . whichever happens first. ;)
Where I Will Now Be Spending Most of My Time
So, I guess my gypsy life will be coming to an end. It was short-lived, but Gypsy Rose Lynn is settling into a new life in Warner Robins. And, I will settle into my working life in Macon (about a 30 minute drive to Geico).
I guess it is official now that I have changed the license plate. I am now a resident of Houston County!
