Some of you may have heard this one way or another, and others may be quite new and not realize the full impact of this sentence, but in the past week I have been offered two library assistant jobs. I intend to take them both–they’re in quite different areas, both geographically and library-wise and I think I’ll enjoy the variety and the challenge. The main one is about 35-50 minutes from my house, depending on the traffic; the other is 15.
I’ve been looking for a job for over a year. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to just give up and cry. But thanks to all of your support and prayers, and thanks especially to the Theotokos (I’m convinced it is NOT a coincidence that all of this happened right before OS Dormition), I have two amazing jobs, one of which is in Children’s Services–exactly where I want to end up. I could hardly have created a better situation.
