August 2010 I made the decision that I would leave California and head to Texas. 2011 would be my year of Transition…finish the Information Systems degree I was working on and find a job in Austin, TX. by Dec. 2011.
2 months later while on a job assignment in Jacksonville, FL., I met Mr. Handsome. I wasn’t looking, wasn’t interested in dating because…I was working my plan to leave California and find a job in Texas. Over the holidays I corresponded with Mr. Handsome and I found myself looking forward to my next business trip to Jacksonville.
2011 turned out to be my year of transition…I fell in love with a wonderful man, I finished my Information Systems degree and I got laid off in November. It all worked to my favor…the perfect time to leave (remember my plan; leave CA). The condo was up for lease in less than 4 hours, the movers were scheduled and Mr. Handsome offered up his home as my headquarters for my job search.
It’s 2012…I am in Jacksonville, Fl., I’ve recovered from a severely sprained ankle (Vail trip w/ Mr. Handsome in Oct. 2011), exercising, cooking healthy meals, gardening…and oh yeah…looking for a job. Until the job comes along…I’ve plenty to do around “The Big Cedar House”. I’ve commandeered the island in the kitchen (newly renovated) as my “desk”…beside me…my Bible/Daily Devotions, my cup of coffee and a box of chocolate…the three things that get me through the day!
I liked my plan…I like God’s plan…even better!
