AS THE WORLD TURNS

Last week someone said there was a pay off for being the kind of person I

am and I scoffed because there have been so many hardships in the last 10 years of our lives and we have worked hard at being good people and doing the right things all along the rocky way.  So when I was hired for a 2 week "trial period" to see if I was a "fit" for a job that meant a 40 minute plus commute each way with minimal benefits and pay, I thought, well, it is the best I have been offered in nearly 2 years.  Off I go but don't quit the weekend job!

So I started the new trial job Thursday and the work is interesting and the people are nice and the commute was as expected.

 I came into the hotel on Saturday and what has happened?  Someone has given notice!  Do I want to go full time?

The pay is a bit less, the benefits about the same but they will put me on the health plan sooner, no commute and I could work with my sister which would have been impossible with the other job. 

Hurrah!

That is always the way it is. When you need a job...no jobs. When you have a job...suddenly there are options. Also, good things come to those who wait...(a boring old statement, but true for anyone who waits long enough.)
