I just wanted to let you all know that I am still alive and doing well, actually better than I ever have before. As I shared in my last post, I got engaged on June 21st. Then, on July 1st, my boss where I have been a temporary employee called me into the office at the end of the day to let me know they’d made a decision of the job I’d interviewed for with them and the decision was that they wanted to bring me on board. As of July 21st, I will be an official full time employee there and I am so happy. This is only the third job in my life that I have truly loved and of the three, only the second where I both loved what I did and not only my fellow co-workers, but my bosses as well. This is also the best paying job I have ever had. Given that Doug and I are paying for most of the wedding ourselves, it’s nice knowing that soon I will be able to really help out with that and around here financially a lot more.
I have such amazing friends and many wonderful family members that love me and support me in my dreams and life goals. My son is key to a lot of my joy as well. He’s gearing up for the sixth grade and for another year of playing football. He’s having some issues with behavior still, but we’re working with him…all four of us. (His dad, myself, his step-mom, and Doug.) We want what is best for him and we’re committed to helping him. He is very excited for football, so we want to encourage that, may that be an outlet for his aggression and help him get out that pent up energy. He’ll be wrestling again this fall/winter too. That should help, along with our talks, keeping him busy, etc. He is excited for the upcoming wedding and his role in it, as am I. I can hardly wait to have him walk me down the aisle. He is so happy for us and I am happy that he and Doug have bonded, that Zach also now has two very stable homes.
I am blessed beyond belief and I pray for those around me, that they will either come to know the kind of good life that I finally found or that if they already have it, that they don’t take it for granted and are happy with what they have. We all do that now and then, forget how good we have it and complain. I am trying harder to be better about that. The truth is, as previously stated this is the best my life has ever been. Thank you, Lord for the wonderful life you have given me and the outstanding people I get to spend it with. (this includes each of you as well!) I am off for the day, got a lot to do with my family. Have a blessed day, make the most of the time you’re given!
