I was a stay-at-home mom until our youngest, our daughter, was 13. At that time, we had one son in college and another about to graduate from high school, so I decided to look for a part time job. I wasn't sure what to expect. I had not been in the workplace in 25 years and had limited marketable skills, so I prayed and asked God for direction. When I saw the ad in the newspaper for the position of file clerk in a doctor's office, I thought I met the requirements... someone with organizational skills and the ability to file alphabetically!! After raising 3 children, I definitely knew my abc's...ha! ha! Ten years later, I am still there and my responsibilities have expanded. My boss, the doctor, is a wonderful guy. He is generous and kind and takes very good care of his employees. Our office manager is the sweetest Christian you could ever meet and she has become one of my BFFs. I work with pleasant people that I really like and to make things even better, my daughter is now working there also. What a treat to spend every day with her!
At lunch today, my sweet girl and I were talking about people who are miserable in their jobs but have no choice but to remain there. I am always grateful for my job.... part time with flexible hours so I can work around my family's schedule, great atmosphere, two minutes from my house. But, today as we talked, I was reminded again that I am blessed. God provided the perfect job for me in a place where I am free to talk about Him, encourage my co-workers, and, hopefully, do work that brings glory to Him. Every year, when I have my evaluation (and get my raise...yea!), I tell Dr. F that God continues to use him to bless my family. I hope that blesses him.
