Funny how things unfold sometimes. Things unexpected, wildly scary and unbelievably hopeful at the same time.
As you know, we’ve been working from our house leading and fundraising for The Exodus Road ever since we moved back to the States seven months ago. This has meant trying to answer emails amid breakfast dishes in the sink and laundry that’s begging to be done. It’s meant that at 2:45, Matt is at the kitchen table trying to research surveillance equipment while the kids are throwing backpacks in the corner, telling stories about the playground and knocking drinks over dangerously close to the computer.
Working from our smallish three bedroom house has meant inefficiency and frustration, as Matt’s been working 40+ hours a week, and I’ve been pulling 25. Which is why we began putting feelers out for office space in our mountain town here in Colorado a little while ago.
And this last week, we found a gem. On-the-cheap. With a view. And space to expand and host volunteers. And a chance to collaborate with our marketing-guru.
And did I mention the view(s)?
I now get to work across the table from the person I admire most, while drawing a pretty-critical line between work-ministry and motherhood.
And we still have to pinch ourselves when we walk in on Monday mornings . . . all the way till Friday afternoons. Because while we’re still very-much month-to-month making-it financially, this step is proving to be a launch forward on many levels.
Thanks for your patience, and support, as we’ve made it.
Anything worth celebrating in your corner of the world? Bring it.
