Bounce In My Steps

Yesterday was one of those great day.  All I can say, some of the stuff that happened to me yesterday totally restore my faith that things really do happen for a reason and great things do come to those who work hard.

As some of you know, I recently lost my job. Then yesterday, let just say something stupid happened that made me truly realized that hey, it's not me and this whole situation is truly a blessing. I wouldn't write what actually happened, let just say it open my eyes completely that I am not missing a thing. I had thought of quitting many times before, but always afraid of taking that step. And, I think God is saying enough with the stalling and all the stress and He opened the way for me. 

Now, I have time to pursue what I love. I no longer have crazy heart burn or stomach pain from stress (my health was going down the drain this past couple years) and I could so feel I am healthier physically & mentally. I get to bond with my niece & SIL more. I exercise more. I get to be a better wife because I am happier and more relax.

And..., a couple offers came out of the blue that were just an eye opening for me. :) I mean, even if the offer is not what I was looking for, just the fact it came out totally of the blue out of unexpected place, was enough to make me stop and look up to say a thank you prayers. I told hubby, I always believe my guardian angels watching over us and the saying, "When one door close, another will open" is so true. Like my SIL, Gina said, this is my chance to create new path & explore new things. :) 

I am excited for my future, for my next adventure. I am taking my time to figure out what's next as I really want to work in positive environment. I mean if we spent half of our life working, it better be in environment that enrich our life in every aspects, correct? :) 

With this happy note, let's move to card and let me share with you a card I created a happy card based on the Play Date Cafe Color Challenge.



I know on the inspiration color it shows light grey and I went with dark grey. Branch out a bit, but there's nothing wrong with that, right? That yummy background is using Market Street Stamp "Bit of Burlap".

Well, now I have a new bounce on my step and I embrace my new life. I wish you all a great day and may your day be filled with things that makes you bounce & skip!! :)

Great post, Vera! I believe that's true too. We should all have a job that we truly enjoy, it's just too bad most people aren't able to make that happen. I'm one of the lucky few that love my job and I am so hoping you find something you'll love too! Darling card, today! Hugs! :)

You're absolutely right, Vera! Take your time! And hold the phone! Your take wasn't in our PDCC gallery! It's absolutely adorable, though! LOVE the texture you created with that background stamp and the row of grass blades under your sweet critter! Thanks so much for playing along! Hugs!

Hi Vera! I agree with you about God taking things out of our hands when we need it. I have been in a similar situation before and it all worked out for the best. With your faith, things will work out for you and for the better! Your card is so cute; love that little gopher!
