Thank you

“Be thankful for your trials.
If you’re being tested, you’re being perfected.
Which means you have a divine purpose & reason to rejoice!”  anon.

This year has been a mixed bag. We’ve enjoyed so many wonderful and unexpected blessings and with them have come challenges – some harder than I ever imagined. I wouldn’t have made it through without the support of family and friends. I want to thank all of you for listening, making me get out of the house, helping with the move, making me laugh, and so many other things that I can’t hope to list. You all mean more to me than you know.

I hope your Thanksgiving is spent with those that you love and that the coming holiday season is full of blessings and His perfect peace.

What a way to make a living…

The classifieds tend to be a bit bare during the holidays but there are a few interesting opportunities here and there. I ran across a posting for a receptionist. After taking a look at the salary and schedule, I continued to scan the ad for details on how to submit a resume. In order to apply for this job, you must personally deliver your resume and application materials to the person who will supervise this position. Is this kind of thing normal? The organization seems reputable but this practice makes me think that Dabney Coleman will be sitting behind the desk sizing up the applicants as they walk in. I think I’ll pass on this one.

Honey, I’m home.

Southern girl gets a job in the Midwest. Southern girl meets and marries native New Yorker. What a Yankee?! No he’s a Dodger’s fan. Southern girl and her boy live happily in the Midwest for years (and years) but her heart wants to come home and her psyche cannot take another gray Ohio winter. After a few almost opportunities, it’s the boy who gets a job in the South and the long journey home begins. Now after nearly seven months apart, they’re back together and starting a new life in the South. He’s working crazy hours and she’s temporarily unemployed but they love each other so everything works out nicely.

This blog is my story of how I’m figuring out this new life. I’ve blogged before and honestly, I’m not sure why I stopped. I miss putting my thoughts and feelings out there, even if it’s just for me…though I hope it won’t be. This is my way to share joys, laughs, and frustrations. It’s my way to push myself to write again. I can’t wait to see where this blog and my new life are going to take me.
