I'm surprised to still be awake considering I need to be up early tomorrow morning. I couldn't turn out the lights until I shared my first day on the job.
I walked in to the job and began filling out the necessary paperwork when it all of a sudden hit me, "I have a job!" This journey has been almost 2 years of tears and worry and doubt and discouragement and ten billion applications and resumes sent. Yet, when I was losing hope, He gave me reason to hope once again.
Being the new kid on the block isn't always easy but I'm reminded that it eventually passes and before long, things and people become quite familiar.
I don't take this blessing lightly at all. When I think about how many people are facing or have faced unemployment, I know that it's nothing short of a miracle for me. True, I've taken a drastic cut in salary but there's no worry there. It will be okay.
For every prayer, thought, word of encouragement, card and phone call as well as emails - I have tremendously appreciated every one.
Although I've got some financial catching up to do, my goal is to help someone else who is facing unemployment in some way. It may just be a bag of groceries or warm gloves and a scarf and an encouraging word but I know how much you all have blessed me by being here.
A million thanks!
