What I want for the New Year

Maybe that should read... WHAT do I want for the New Year?

I know some things I want, like-
*a closer walk with God
*family always near and enjoying one another.
*a healthy happy grandson
*good health....for all

The thing I don't know about is my job.
I've had my house cleaning business for almost 9 years. Since Nov. I lost a house to their finances, to the 95 year old being randy, to one moving out of state and knocked 2 down from once a week to every 2 weeks.
Its starting to hurt me financially. I'm not sure if its losing the work or Christmas actually.
My dilemma is I've been wondering if this is all I wanna do.
Or do I want to do something else???

Working for myself is sometimes good and sometimes not so good.

*I make my own hours
*No boss
*Easy to rearrange jobs if I have an appt or just need off.
*Half days
*being able to see Drex most days and spend some one on one time at least once and usually several times a week.

*Being my boss (I'm hard on me)
*This darn AS and fibro (although the activity probably helps)
*Driving a lot to different area every day
*gas prices

I'm sure I had other reasons I can't think of right the question remains-
Do I want to do something different or get a few new houses and keep doing what I'm doing now?

......I don't know.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

What a sweet boy!

I totally understand the working for yourself issues! I teach piano lessons and when I first started I had people paying weekly but then they would reschedule at the last minute so then I would suddenly not get paid the money I was expecting. I decided to start charging monthly...but then I lost a couple clients. I could def. use some more but then that takes more time away from the kids...but it still beats a REAL job!

Good luck on making that tough decision...and if you have some free time you can come to Atlanta and clean my house : )
