Work hours update...

Saturday, September 07, 2013

Yesterday I made a whole "pro's and con's list" of the possibility of the new hours at work (9am-5:30pm instead of the 10:30am-11pm shift that I work now). I was praying and I felt that God was telling me to quit being fearful, to take a leap of faith and put my trust in HIM, not in a piece of paper that says I have "paid vacation leave." During that prayer, He made it clear to me what my answer would be if I was offered the job.

Today my manager came up to me and said "The position's yours if you want it!" I was so excited and said "YES!" I texted my husband and boys and they were very excited to have me at home in the evenings. I can't switch to my new hours until November since they already have the October schedule (and on call schedules) made out. But I was worried that it would be even longer than that. I'm praying that they fill my old position quickly so that people don't get mandated to stay till 11pm two nights a week. I would think that it would be a good position for someone who wanted to get their foot in the door in recovery. If I didn't have little kids at home, I would have stuck with that shift for a long time. But they're only little for so long, and I don't want to miss these years.

Thank you for all who prayed for me as I was making my decision. Your prayers definitely helped, because God made my choice very clear!

    Yay! So happy for you! You are absolutely right about kids. You will always have your kids but they will only be a certain age for so long. I hope your old position gets filled up quickly! Again, congrats! emoticon
