Curveballs

Well, its official...I am terrible at predicting how things are going to happen. If you know me, you know that I'm a planner! I try to plan everything and usually that just creates stress for me and frustration for my husband! Well, I was all planning for my wonderful upcoming job as an OB/GYN PA given the offer I received a month or so ago and what do you know....life threw me a curveball. Another job offer came along that isn't what I thought I wanted, but seems to be much more perfect for me than I could have imagined.

What is it? Well, its working as a Family Practice PA for a small clinic in Plano. Its a wonderful place to work and it feels almost like a little family. The physician there is amazing and so sweet and its the type of place that thinks about you as a person and not as just an employee. They made me an offer that was very comparable to my other offer, but included a wonderful bonus program that would make my potential earnings much greater. They are also much more flexible and willing to pay for part of my maternity leave! Its also very close to where Josh and I want to buy a house and very close to our church and friends as well.

So, after making a pros and cons list and talking it over with God (and those closest to me in my life), it looks like the Family Practice job is the one I will accept.

Maybe God was just trying to teach me that I don't always get to do the planning.....HE has a plan for me as well!!!! :-)

God definitely has a way of doing that doesn't He? This just proves that He knows more than we and can see the bigger picture. I am so proud of you Kisha! I love how you listened and let Him be in control, which is so hard sometimes when we have our minds set on our own things. I still want to see you soon!
