I absolutely love my family, and for most of my life I have gotten to live near them.
Sadly last year, my husband and I had to move to the otherside of the nation for his job.
I was super disappointed at first, and I really did not want to go, but I knew it was what we were supposed to do. Something that has made transitioning into a new place so much easier is our amazing church family. I absolutely love my church. The people are so welcoming and friendly. My husband and I are literally treated like family there. My full-time job is actually cleaning the church. It is a huge building, so cleaning it takes an entire five days. I love cleaning the church except during the winter months because the building is so cold. They keep most of the building at forty degrees during the week to save money. It is totally reasonable, but forty degrees is pretty cold even when you are cleaning your heart out. I was told that I could turn the thermostat up in the areas that I would be working in for the day, and I do sometimes, but I just hate to spend so much money just to heat the area that I am working in. My pastor told me that if I refused to turn the heat up where I was working that he would send someone in to turn it up. I appreciate his kindness, but I actually started bringing one of my little space heaters from home. I keep it next to me all day while I am cleaning, and it keeps me pretty warm! I love our church, and I like to find ways to help save money.
