Another day....Another dollar?.....
First off, I want to introduce a new fellow blogger
Please stop by and say, "Hi"
If you were here earlier....she just changed it!
Tell her Diana Joy sent you :) lol
My week has been crazy!I am struggling with my job. I feel like I shouldn't be whining because when I interviewed for the job my boss told me that he didn't want to hire me because I would be bored out of my mind and want to quit within six months....So, I tried to convince him that he was wrong....But, guess what?...I'M BORED OUT OF MY MIND!!!!!!! There is a problem....I can't quit! I just love the people I work with. My co-workers and I spend so much time laughing, goofing off....crying together....and even praying. And...oh yeah...we also work! lol Who would of thought that a job would be more than just an income.....Most of you know me through e-mail, speaking engagements, networking, church,....or through my book and the unseen child foundation. Over the last year I have found that when you work full time it has been impossible to hide behind a cause, a mission, a book or a computer.....I have come to realize that when you spend 8-10 hours a day with someone....they become your family. And all the good, bad and ugly is exposed for the world to see :p Before this job it took a great deal of energy to be professional just attending church, or meetings for my special needs children, ...but, to go to work and maintain that togetherness for weeks on end!!! MAN!!! At times I think I'm going to lose my mind!!! I have recovered physically from the heart-attack... and I can feel myself healing from the emotional scars. The rage my children have deep inside them is slowly dissipating with each day that I am able to get up and go to work. Even though the fear of losing me still lingers in their eyes...I now see hope overwhelmingly present in their eyes as they chatter of all the details of their day....My daughter has this tradition of reading the bible, talking with us, and then praying before bed.
When my husband and I bow our heads to pray, Savannah will usually go through each member of our family....which can be very long depending on the day...lol But, lately I will hear our youngest say, "Mommy, what's that man's name? The one from your work that has cancer?"Or, "Mommy we need to pray for your friend (from work) who was crying on the phone on fathers day"
Also, she would whisper,"Daddy, can we ask Jesus to help mommy's friend get better?...She's been sick and mommy hasn't seen her at work for two whole days....." You can tell my daughter is like her mother when she prayed, "Thank you God for the new baby girl that was born last week....(my co-workers wife had a beautiful baby girl:)....
As I sat down to do a post tonight I was determined to write about all the frustrations of work...(without names of course) lol hahahahahaha
But, now I am just thankful that God has given me the opportunity to have such wonderful people in my life....
I also thank my co-workers for their support with this book, my children, and the day-to-day moans and groans! lol
And...thanks to my friend from work who is always willing to turn on her instant message so as to rescue me from pure boredom :) Thanks Lyss! hehehehehe!
I need to go to sleep....
I'm sure I will regret this post by morning...
I started off this post with "Another day...Another dollar?...."
So, I will finish with, "Please pray that God gives me a little more of those dollars and alot less of those days...K? I'm looking a little too old lately!" hahahahahaha!
