Wow, I have so much to be thankful for that I don’t even know where to begin. I’ve been wanting to write for days, but again, I didn’t know where to begin.
This week was another good week at work. As I noted in a previous post, my new job is quite the challenge unlike most of my previous positions. I usually pick things up very quickly, but not so with this job. There is A LOT to learn and praise Jesus, I’m learning, just not at the pace that I would like or that I am accustom to, which takes a bit of getting used to.
Thursday, I got called into the boss’ office and I immediately thought to myself, “oh my goodness, what did I do now?” and “what on earth could I have done that was so bad as to get called into the boss’ office?” So, we walk to his office and he sits down and the look that came over his face made my heart sink and I immediately thought I was about to be fired!
So, he starts by saying that he’s glad to have me on board, he likes my work ethic, when he asks me to do something, I jump right on it and get it done, I’m not afraid to ask questions, he likes my personality in that if he says something to offensive, I don’t take offense and if I do, I don’t let it show. By the way, he apologized if he said anything to offend me and stated again that he’s glad to have me on board and a part of the team. I cannot recall a single time in my entire working life when I have been complimented and encouraged by not one but two supervisors in the span of a month and a half!!!
Now, we all know that there is no such thing as a perfect job because we are humans and humans are flawed creatures, there are pros and cons to my current position as well, but I’m thankful to have it. I have finally found a job where I actually have work to do throughout the day instead of being bored staring at the clock waiting to go home.
I know I’m still in the “honeymoon” stage of this new job, but I must admit, I’m enjoying it thus far.
