I haven’t totally stuck to this being a daily thing. I really admire daily bloggers and how hard they work to get a post out regularly. I start a post, get distracted by the need to update my sidebar, get stuck on Pinterest searching crockpot recipes when I’m supposed to be searching sidebar help, come back and write some more, realize I need to go to bed, and then 3 days later come back and work on it again. But then I wander off to search for social media icons.
So, dream job. I don’t have one. Nope, sorry. I’m not crazy in love with what I do (basically an office worker) but it’s OK and it pays the bills. I love working with the spay/neuter clinic on Saturdays for their vaccine clinics because I love the animals. Is it my dream job though? No just because I think doing it all the time would be really heartbreaking. I have fun with blogging and social media but I think if it was a full time thing, it might stop being fun for me.
This is so off the wall, but my dream job would be something that allowed me to hang out on the beach on a regular basis, work at a pet rescue so that I could help kitties while playing with them, and go to yard sales and thrift stores to shop whenever I wanted. I could dye my hair purple (my corporate-esque job now frowns upon unnatural hair colors) and wear glitter rimmed glasses and flip flops every day. I would also have free time to go to my kiddo’s school functions every time, and I could stop in the middle of my day to bake chocolate chip pecan cookies for no reason.
If you see a job ad with that description, message me pronto, OK? I’ll even share some of the chocolate chip pecan cookies with you.
Hubby and I are trying to buy a house for our little home. He has been working part time since coming off the road as an over the road truck driver. He loves the company but they didn’t have full time hours available. He has worked there 6 months and I was starting to lose hope and he considered whether to go somewhere else. He decided he wanted to stick it out though. I kept praying for patience for myself. I kept praying for strength for Hubby because it was such a tough situation for him.
Today he called me and said that not only were they putting him on a better shift so that he will be home for dinner, but that they are making him full time. I’m so, so thankful. His manager was given the choice of hiring a second part-time person, or making Hubby full time, and he chose to make Hubby full time time.
I need to remember to be patient. Good things come with time.

A few years ago, I found a statue at a thrift store of a woman holding a cat. I wish I could take a picture but she is packed up somewhere in storage. Anyway, I took her home, and Googled and learned that she is Julian of Norwich. She withdrew from society and was locked into a cell to focus on her spirituality. She was known for having a cat as her companion. She believed in a loving God and was optimistic in her writings. The quote above was very soothing to me because I was going through a hard time with my anxiety when I learned all of this. It is now my mantra when I’m going through a depressive or anxious episode and I always find comfort in reciting it. I hope that it can bring comfort to someone else.
