Signs...

I was reading Little Maple's Mom's blog and she was discussing signs. I do believe in signs and I have been open to experiencing them for some time. So today, Shawn and I were discussing being a single income family and right at the moment I said that it would be a wonderful thing, two bubbles floated by our living room windows. They were so pretty and when we looked outside (we thought that our neighbor's daughters might have been playing in the yard), we couldn't find their origins. Hmnnn, a good sign I would say!!
This past week has been a particularly difficult week at work for a variety of reasons which include grievances against my department (read: Me, as department head), infighting and ill co-workers (read: LOTS of extra work for Kristine). Ugh. I am really finished with this career and can't wait for our daughter to come home. There are jobs popping up all around me but I don't want to start something new as my job is all about relationship building blah, blah, blah... and to only be in a new position for 8 months tops, just wouldn't bring me any job satisfaction. So, I stay put and bide my time. I digress...
Oh yes, so on the worst day of this week, I notice that one of my diamonds is missing from my wedding band:( When we took it in that evening to get it fixed, the salesperson showed us a beautiful new ring and Shawn decided that I should have it. Ahhh. Then we went on to do more shopping and my favorite perfume that we haven't been able to find was at Sears of all places (our microwave died and we were looking for a replacement) and Shawn decided that I should have that too. Soooo sweet.
Signs. Well I put a number of financial plans that we had made into action this past week and then we get the bubble signs. My work week is the worst week but the loss of a diamond in my ring allows for Shawn to spoil me with a beautiful new ring and my fav perfume. A sign that good can come out of sadness (I was REALLY upset to find that diamond missing).
Can't wait to see what this next week holds... hopefully some good signs!!!

Hopefully those are just the beginning of many more good "signs" on the horizon. :)

I too am searching of a sign of what the right path is for me now.

Being spoiled is always a good thing.

Keep smilin!

But, but...what does the bubble mean to you?

We got our sign, hit us over the head and our life has now veered in a direction I never thought it would've.

Glad yours are positive ones too.

I'm longing for the clear path to open up directly in front of me. Of course, if that's what I'm hoping for, I'm out of luck because in my experience, it's rarely clear-cut and obvious.

here's to all of us finding our way.

I do believe God sends us signs at times. We adopted through the waiting child program in Nov, but about a year before that when we were discussing opting out of China (something I knew in my heart I didn't want to do)I was sitting at the kitchen table discussing this with DH. Right at that very moment, we saw something fly by our heads. We looked down, and there on the floor was a baby ladybug! It had to have been a sign because I had never before seen a ladybug in our house! We stopped our discussion, and stuck with China, and I am so grateful! You will love staying home, it is such a gift, and best for children!
