Moving Forward

 If you're here from Home Sanctuary, Welcome!  Grab a big steaming mug and join in.  You can visit other Company Girls, and find out what Company Girl Coffee is all about, HERE.

I've been a little absent this week, spending my time, instead, doing laundry, sorting through baby clothes to pass along to Abby, rearranging bedroom furniture, playing with my boy, hanging out with my man, and spending time with God, asking Him what he wants with this blog.  For now, I'm going to start stepping it back a bit, spend more time with my family, friends, and Him.

This week we did decide that I will need to work part time come September.  My maternity leave will be over, and on the minimum salary at my husband's job, we can't survive and still eat. 
I'm hoping to be able to do something out of my home, but at this point, can't think of anyone who needs child-care, don't have the space to start a small 2/3 day-per-week pre-school, and don't know what other options are out there.
I can't really imagine working outside the home because of my husband's erratic work schedule (he's on call most of the time), so childcare for William would be at  2 1/2 hours notice at most - since that's the notice Andrew gets before he has to be on a train somewhere.

In other news, for those who know him, Ryan, son of Rick and Judy, is in the hospital in Toronto battling liver failure.  Earlier this week the doctors said he would need [another] transplant (he had one as a kid), but now, Praise the Lord!, the doctors are saying his liver is functioning better.  Doctors are hesitantly optimistic that Ryan may pull through.  Their family and friends covet your prayers.


  1. Oh my goodness, I just read your post and was laughing when I realized that your son's name is William and your husband's name is Andrew!

    Same here!! But my name isn't Heather. :)

    Just praying that you'll find something as far as work goes. We have been in a similar situation. I just started back to work only one day a week after my maternity leave (I am a nurse), so having that flexible of a schedule has been such a blessing, since I want to be home as much as possible. But soon we will be moving and I won't have my mother around to keep Little W., so I'll be looking into what I can do from home.

    Nice to chat with you!

  2. Wow, thanks for the update about Ryan...had no idea he was so sick. I'll be praying:) Love your blog & seeing snippets of your life! Praying that God would send the right job your way!

  3. Praying that the Lord will open just the perfect door/opportunity for you in the work world. Blessings to you as you face this endeavor!

  4. God will provide - He knows where He wants you (whether at home or in the workplace). Trust Him to guide you... Prov 3.5-6!

  5. Praying for your friend Ryan...and for your work situation...Have a great weekend!

  6. Praying for your friend's well as your job situation. That gives God plenty of time to reveal His perfect plan. :)

  7. Praying God will provide the perfect opportunity for you! I can relate. My husband is on call 24/7 so there is ALWAYS a risk of him getting called out and it is tough to make plans or get any sort of evening/weekend type job.

    Praying for your friends.

  8. I'll be praying for just the right job opportunity for you. It is tough to go back to work, but I know there will be blessing along the way...even if you can't see it now. I will pray for God's abundant blessing on you.

  9. Here's praying that the right thing comes your way. But you know what - and I know you know this already - whatever happens is always for the best. You just might not be able to see that til you get a little further down the road. Best wishes!
