Early Holiday Greetings

Pin It!
Well I don't know how many of you are aware of my recent 3 month long job search which amounted to much worry, depression, loss of self esteem, panic, and desperation. I have been out of work for about a year and apparently local employers were not too keen on that idea. I had very few call backs and even fewer interviews. And as time went on those interviews seemed brutal and I found myself falling on my face, totally bombing. 

I had resigned myself to the fact that I was going to have to go beyond what my local communities had to offer. I was going to have to move and uproot my high school daughter who threatened mutiny if I did. I didn't know what I was going to do. I needed a job very badly, the reason for which I have not publicly stated but it has to do with my marriage falling apart. So now I guess I have said it publicly. I cried myself to sleep with desperation. And I prayed. I knew deep down that God would not abandon me and I trusted Him. 

I am so happy to announce that as of last Monday I am now a productive member of society, I finally got a job. And even better is that I think I am really going to like it. It is a small hospital, I don't think I have even been in a smaller one. Everyone is very friendly and helpful.  I will be working on the med/surg floor, which is the only floor they have, and I will be working in the ER and will take my turn being charge nurse. I am so excited. 

So to make a long story short, I will be working on Thanksgiving day and want to tell everyone who is reading to have a very special Thanksgiving day. I have so much to be thankful for. I always take time to reflect these things so I can be sure to include everything in my thanks.  And I thank you all for reading.
