I have officially been back at work for over a week now after being on maternity leave. It’s such a bittersweet experience. I had the best time at home cuddling with my little girl. The thought of going back to work was daunting. I was worried that I wouldn’t like working anymore. Well, it turns out that I do! My first day back was definitely overwhelming, but mostly in a good way. I received so many pleasant greetings from all of my coworkers, it made the transition feel almost seamless.
My fellow coworkers were very eager to hand my projects back over to me. And I was happy to jump right back in. Before I left I had started working on a book in our new brand Encounter. I immediately became very passionate about the book. So much that I was hesitant to let it go. And then I realized it wasn’t an option. Even though the project was on a fast track I still had the opportunity to work on it again when I returned. I think working on it again has made coming back that much better. I am so excited about this book and am excited for the world to see it! So be on the lookout for Jars of Hope in August 2015.
