I must being doing something right

Like a lot of moms, I often feel pulled in 20 different directions.  And I never feel like I'm giving anything 100%.  There's nothing worse than feeling like an inadequate mom and wife.  Then on top of it, to feel like you also aren't giving it your all at work....the one thing that keeps you from home.
Well last week I got some pretty big signs that I must be doing something right.
My boss called me in for a meeting.  A meeting I thought was just her and I....that turned into a meeting with 4 other people.  Thankfully I didn't find out just who would be there until right before it started or I would have been stewing for days. 
Am I being fired?  Is the grant to my program going away, leaving me jobless yet again?  Have they discovered I secretly check blogs at work occasionally everyday? 
Ok so, that last one was probably a stretch, but for some reason, my mind was only stirring with negative thoughts.
Not the case at all!  In fact it was a meeting where they said nothing but wonderful things about me.  How they knew when they hired me they'd found a "true gem."  Someone they knew would do big things.  And now, just 10 months after I started, those big things were laid out on the table.
I was a offered a new position.  An amazing opportunity.  A pretty big promotion.
One of our satellite dental practices is inside an elementary school and they want to do a test model having a Hygienist run it .  Since a majority of the work is preventative, it didn't make sense to have a Dentist on staff full time.  So it's me, running the show.  I'm the boss.  I have an assistant.  And a receptionist.
Crazy huh?!
It's definitely going to be a new role for me.  Something I never even thought of doing, but I'm excited for the challenge (and the raise!!)!  At this point nothing is 100% set in stone.  They want to see how it goes for 3-4 weeks and then re-evaluate, but so far so good!  One week in and I'm loving it.  Here's to hoping they're loving what I'm doing too!
