It's been over 3 weeks since I implemented my daily rosaries, and while I haven't been praying for any specific intention (I enjoy just meditating on the mysteries, which I FINALLY memorized, and reciting the prayers aloud), it is probably no coincidence that the graces have been flowing like honey in my life recently.
First, I began my new job with the new NaPro Center. There are so many wonderful developments taking place as the Center grows (exponentially and quickly!) and I am just so honored to be a part of it during this exciting time! And I also discovered that I am going to be in even more demand once the actual building is ready (we are practicing at the hospital right now, but will soon have our own, independently-owned building, hopefully by May). At that time, I will be asked to come on full-time very likely, and work in ultrasound AND as a Practitioner. My mind is spinning - - it seems like such a short time ago I was laid off from my teaching aide position, feeling so low on myself, and deciding to make NaPro my "career." It was a pipe dream, because I knew I could never actually rely upon NaPro/FertilityCare to be a full-time, family-supporting career... but now it's actually happening!!
But that's not all.
After work last night, I went to my "homebase" NaPro Center to do an ultrasound on a patient, and afterwards spoke with my NaPro Dr about these new, amazing developments with the new center. She had exciting news of her own to share with me - which I am not at liberty to speak about yet, but trust me when I say it's HUGE and fantastic, and New Jersey is going to be THE NaPro State!!! And to think, these are both happening at the same time, and I am a part of both!!
But that's not all.
You may have remembered me talking about my husband's job as Partner with his father in a General Contracting company. Well, I also bumped into my NaPro Dr's husband last night, who is also in G.C., and he asked me for my husband's contact information because he needs to build a pre-engineered metal building (DH's specialty). DH and I have been praying hard for work for him, and it has been a LOOOOONG, hard Fall and Winter with virtually no work. The fact that this is all happening now is just crazy!
Coincidence? Or is our luck beginning to change?
Next Tuesday and Wednesday I will be traveling to Washington, DC for my ultrasound school, as a representative for "Students of Academic Choice." I was asked to go (and I will be payed all travel expenses as well as lost income for two days of work) because I am one of the few recent grads from my program who has secured employment quickly. DH is coming, and we're very much looking forward to Ash Wednesday Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. I once received a beautiful Mass card from that shrine (last July, in the midst of much suffering) from an amazing blogger ;)
If anyone is in the area on Tuesday or Wednesday and wants to meet up, let me know! I cannot WAIT to meet Shannon, FINALLY!! :)
God, I am not worthy of all the gifts you've bestowed on me and my husband lately, but I am so very thankful for the break from suffering, even if only for a little while. Praise God!
