Today I sent in my first teaching job application. I am really praying I get the job. I would be a very good fit for the school and the position. I am praying I am not the only one who thinks so too. Competition is tough but I know God is in control of this position and if I am meant to get it, I will. But your prayers and positive thoughts would mean a GREAT deal to me. There is power in numbers, right?
Am I ready to be away from Lily so much? Not really. But I know I need to work, I need to use my teaching degree that I worked so hard on and the longer I wait to get a job, the harder it will be to leave her. I think it will be better to get my first year out of the way when she is so young because she won't remember mom being gone so much. I am ready for financial stability. I have 60,000 dollars in school loan debt that I need to pay off and it makes me sick thinking if I stick to the minimum payments I will be paying them for 15 years! 15, that is over half my life as of yet. I think when Lily is older she will understand. She may not understand now but like I said she won't remember. I am doing this for her, for our family!
God willing I will get that job! Please God, be willing!
