Embracing Your Second Calling

I got to thinking the other day, and that is SO bad for me sometimes, but in five years Robert will be 21 and Kayla will be 18 and my homeschooling journey will be over. The thought that crossed through my mind was What am I gonna do after their gone? 

In the mail that day, I received this book to review:
 God knew exactly what I needed for this time period of my life. When I am done with this calling--homeschooling my kids, He will most definitely have another calling for me ready to go.

This book would be a really good one to read if you also have that thought in the back of your mind!

I DO think about that. The end of my homeschool journey won't happen for another 13 years (whoa thats a long time), but even after that...what?
What about the "here and now". I don't want to (I wont) wait until 13 years from now to answer God's call on my life. Its just that the seasons of my life seem to be rapidly changing and its time to embrace and enjoy the ride!! I'd love to read this book myself :)
