A time to rediscover ourselves

Have you recently lost a job, a spouse, or a loved one? Have you found yourself in a place in your life that feels uncomfortable and out of control? Have you reflected back on what you had and are now wondering where you are going? You are not alone…

For most of my adult life, I was a special educator. I worked in classrooms with some of the most challenging children placed in our public education system. Even though it was difficult, I had a purpose. I would go to work each day and be embraced by colleagues and children. Though, I was exhausted and many times frustrated by the system, I knew who I was… A special educator. Then after 32 years, my career came to a dramatic halt. At first, I was depressed, angry, and most of the time bewildered. I had a very difficult time looking forward because I was having such a hard time letting go of the past.

Being a God fearing believer, I turned to God to try to redefine myself. I have read the Bible and many other books to search out my next steps. Life has also unfolded many stepping stones that I have taken to rediscover myself. As I have searched for the meaning of my life today, I decided to start a blog so that I can converse with others that may be going through their own journey.

I have sought out the meaning to a time in my life that can be compared to the Israelites’ journey through the desert. Even though they had left a horrendous life in Egypt, they constantly complained to Moses about their present situation. I can totally relate to them and find myself looking back and desperately wanting to return to the classroom.

My hope, through this blog, is to connect to people that have found themselves in a difficult situation but are striving to take a positive approach to rediscovering themselves.

Until next time, it may be beneficial, to take some time to reflect on how you are personally managing through your desert walk.

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
