I’m not quite sure where to start and how much info to give. I don’t even have all the details yet…
The main part of this news is that… I thought I was going to get laid off yesterday and instead my boss and manager offered me a new job.
I will remain in the same training/design field creating instructional material and using my degree, working with my co-workers from the last few years on the same contract, reporting to the same office every day (for now), I will just be getting my benefits and pay from another company. So I won’t be a C2 employee anymore. That makes me a little sad because I’ve really enjoyed my first job.
However, in this economy – you work where you can to help provide for your family.
So to say I was shocked would be an understatement.
I even told my boss and manager that I have had a box in my car for a week (they kind of laughed).
Once again, my good Father shows me that in NO way, shape, or form can I come up with my own plans. By the way, I have been trying to come up with a plan for the last couple months. Well, let’s be honest my whole life really.
I have prayed about quitting… but Micah and I weren’t on the same page with that quite yet.
I expected to get laid off.
Never in a million years did I think that this would be an option.
I can look at it as “they let me go” or “they traded me” but you know what I am looking at it as… my God is good and so gentle in transitioning my life and just gave me a job for the foreseeable next 9 months without me having to apply or interview for one.
Consider my mind blown. I don’t even know what to say, but just thank you.
One of the reasons I am super excited… is because even though I will be reporting to the same office for now, there is huge potential to telecommute in the future. If there is one “career goal” this mama has – it is to be able to be as available as possible for my family.
I always told Micah if he felt like I was slacking in any home responsibilities – I would quit working right away – no questions asked. He doesn’t feel that way though and especially while we just have Haddon right now, I think it’s great if I can still help contribute towards the family income, and be able to maintain work/life balance.
I’m just speechless; except for … thank you Abba. You are too good to us.
I start tomorrow – but at my same desk, with a couple of my favorite “co-workers”.
