Blessings in Disguise

Has anything lucky ever happened to you? It's freaky, right?!

Lately I have been pretending like I have an iota of control over my life. The truth is, I don't. Things can change very rapidly. My D.C. post fell through and I have been given a new assignment--and it's a REALLY exciting assignment. But even so, I am having trouble adjusting to the fact that I will leave in less than a year. I thought I had more time.

Sometimes unexpected twists of fate are blessings in disguise. David and I are excited for the next stage in our lives, but meanwhile we are enjoying our life here. Stay tuned for when I announce where we will be going...

  1. It seems to happen pretty frequently - there's apparently a good reason why "flexibility" is one of the things they look for in the FSOA! I was in the 146th A-100, and at least four people in my class, including me, had either the place or the timing of our first assignments change before we started. Best of luck with whatever your new first tour will be!

  2. Thanks, Lemur! It's true that flexibility is important. Are you really in the 146th? That is my class!

  3. I like the clue you have in your profile.
