My husband is out of town until Thursday doing medical work in rural Newfoundland. For any new readers, this is something does 3-4 times a year. Several years back, he had a job working at a rural hospital and fell in love with the people. There is a serious doctor shortage in many rural communities, so people in his town have to travel hours and hours to see a specialist. Gilbert travels back periodically to save them the trouble, and to see his buddies. I'm proud of him for continuing this good work, but a little lonely as well! Happily, I'll be able to accompany him on his next trip, but for this time, I'm spending his absence cramming like mad for my Chinese exam coming up in three weeks.
In other news, I was offered a new job today! I'll be taking on the supervisory role at my current job. So basically, before I was a part-time receptionist, now I'm the boss of all the part-time receptionists. So far, that makes me the boss of one other person, but we'll be hiring someone new soon too. I was really unsure of whether to apply, but I spent a lot of time seeking God's will and was encouraged by many co-workers that they'd love to see me in this role. It's a bit daunting - I have never sought a role in any kind of management - but I'm excited to challenge myself. Here's to new adventures!
In honour of new beginnings, here's some new visitors to our home. I love spring!
