Could It Be?

I have been home for two days with my boys.  The biggest is still not quite well, but he is doing much better.  His fever finally broke after breakfast.  Two days of being home has been most delightful.  I miss these days, and hope that soon I get many more of them.  I have been busy caring for the sick one, but as he rests I find myself organizing the pantry and washing all the rugs.  I have cleaned out two closets of things that I have neglected since the move.  I reorganized the laundry, and this evening I am excited to roast a whole chicken for dinner. 

I am no-doubt a homemaker at heart.  Duty has called, and I have had to spend these few months working in the city. It was a very difficult transition leaving my music classroom.  I was so happy teaching those two days and home keeping the rest.  It was a great way to have much time for my family, and contribute to our household income.

Late, late last night, I was folding laundry and watching a very high fever.  I had to stay awake to give the next dose of medicine.  In between time, I took a moment and browsed through openings in the area schools.  I have several I have been wrapping up paperwork for, but there in the dark of the night...I couldn't believe my sleepy eyes. Tucked away in the middle of the postings was a new post.  Part time elementary music.  My heart skipped a million beats.  I wasn't sleepy any longer.

I am working feverishly on my application this morning.  It may not work out, and I may not be the teacher for the job.  However, at this point I am tickled pink.  It couldn't be more perfect.  I am hopeful that the right doors will open, and I can go back to doing and being what seems most perfect for me and our family.  Making music with the littles, and spending much needed time at home roasting chickens and growing tomatoes.

If you think to, say a little prayer that this will be the right opportunity.  And, if it isn't that I will not hang my head but keep looking for the right one to come.
