The past couple week for me have been ones of thinking, planning and reflecting. I feel a strong tug to do something different in my life. If that is a different job, different volunteer opportunities and different experiences. It has to be little baby steps and living in a rural area nothing is close, I don’t have a plethora of opportunities. So I made up my resume. I think it has been almost 15 years since I have done a resume. It has been a good learning experience. I have applied for a few jobs and I have been turned down for a few jobs.
Last week I applied for a very unique experience. I have had a 45 minute phone interview (thank you for an amplified phone). If I would get this job I would be a literacy tutor for grades K-3 in our local school. What an awesome opportunity. To be a constant in a childs life and get them to that magical goal of reading. I hope I can be that person in a little persons life. I hope to hear this week if I will be going on to the next interview.
Another part of the dreaming comes with this tutor job. At the end of my year I would receive an education gift. It is a rather good amount of money to further my education. Wow does the dreaming begin. What would I do? What would I study? I don’t know I have ideas swirling in my head faster than snowflakes in a blizzard. I am thinking deaf and hard of hearing something with that. Maybe teacher for deaf and hard of hearing or a vocational or rehabilitation counselor. Just don’t know too many decisions.
Then today to start of the week with a blessing and a half. I subbed in Ag again today. I have to say it was much better today than the last time. Not one scissor got thrown across the room. I shouldn’t even have to say that. So back to the issue at hand…got home to a letter in the mailbox. I was gifted a hearing aid from the Sertoma club. I was beyond speechless and tears were flowing. I will be balanced (haha-one in both ears). This is a gift I can never repay and I am so humbled. I go to my audiologist on Thursday morning.
We just had our wedding anniversary and I just feel this will be a year of changes and I pray these changes will be good ones for our family.
