Mmmkay . . .
Y’all know I work(ed!) for one of the world’s craziest bosses. I have been praying for – and applying for – jobs since my 90 day probationary period was over – two years ago. Interviews, no offers – for two years. “Thanks for your interest, but . . . “
My pastor has been preaching on faith something serious lately AND telling us to live our lives with joy.
When I came back to work after the holidays, I typed up my letter of resignation – filled in all the details with the exception of the date. I started compiling a “how to” manual for whoever gets this position next. I started acting like I had a new job even though I didn’t have a prospect.
Lady called me, asked me to apply for a job. That was last week. Went back for a second interview with the department head yesterday. Got the offer today. Immediately said yes! And then realized I didn’t even know how much the job pays. More than my current one, thank you God. Not enough to push us into a new tax bracket, but a raise is a raise, and I got one!
So . . . I will be the Education Administrator – working with residents and interns, keeping them on track – in the Surgery Department. They don’t have a problem with my going to school, are willing to work with me on flex time, will sign off on educational leave AND they like their jobs.
I am blessed.
