I started a new job on the 19th, but to be really honest, I have not considered it a blessing until today. Don't get me wrong... it's a great job... it's just that it's a change, and for most of us change is uncomfortable to say the least. I haven't worked for many years and the change in schedule and additional planning and preparation that is necessary has been overwhelming the last couple of days. But today, I decided... I like my job. I have a great corner office with a view, my hours are flexible and everyone I work with has been very kind. I have so much to learn and it all seems a bit much right now, but I'm confident that I'll catch on pretty soon. Everyone has been patient, even when I have to ask the same question over and over again.
In these economic times, I'm thankful to have a job... any job. But to actually do something I enjoy and work with kind people is truly a blessing.
