After 10 years as a server at Olive Garden, I will no longer be in the restaurant business. I have different emotions concerning my resignation. First, I am super excited. For the longest time, I have wanted to be a stay-at-home wife, supporting my husband from the home,daily serving our family in that role. Yes, you can support your family and have a job outside the home. However, that's not me.That's not who God made me to be. People ask me what I do with my time at home well I love to cook and bake, keep a tidy home, and make things for our home. I love being a keeper of the home. I find it such a blessing to keep our home and to make a peaceful home life for my husband. The second emotion I have about quitting is that i'm sad. Even though I've wanted to quit for quite some time, it's going to be a sad goodbye. I have been in the restaurant industry since I was 18 years old. That is a very long time. I enjoy serving, well most of the time. So leaving will be bittersweet. God is leading us in a new direction and we are so excited to follow His will for our lives. So I now put Olive Garden in the past and look to the future. I want to leave you with a few scriptures that I have found comfort in.
In Christ, Sarah
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
May He grant you according to your heart's desire and fulfill all your purpose.
