Rain, a Job, and a Special Friend: Blessings from the Sky!

Don't you just love it when your prayers are answered?

WOW - Hurricane Hermine dropped a LOAD of rain on us this week.  I absolutely love the rain - growing up in the dry sticks of eastern New Mexico, you learn to appreciate it.  Even when it comes to the tune of 8 inches and makes it really hard for your husband to get to work.

A few posts back, I confidently wrote about my new game plan.  My new life lay out.  After all, I turned "almost 30" this year... remember?  It was time I figured out what in the world I was doing with myself.

The idea of pursuing a future in public education still sounds like a great idea, but I simply waited too long to follow that path this year. I waited so late in the summer to start down this journey, and I was just plain out of luck.  So I decided to hang out and wait for something to happen.

And pray.

And then I got a phone call out of the blue.

Long story short, I accepted a position yesterday with the Ridglea Country Club here in Fort Worth.  I'll be starting my new position as the Membership Director next week and I couldn't be more excited.

I've never felt that a job suited me as much as this job does - every aspect is dead on, and I'm joining a wonderful team.  I'm so excited!

To top it all off, I had a great conversation with a close friend this morning.  We are the kind of friends that don't talk extremely often, but when we do, we pick up right where we left off, which I love.  Turns out, she and I are both dealing with the same curves in the road at the same time with regards to our lives.  Isn't it nice to know that we aren't alone?

Hey, it just started raining again.  :)

Today, I thank God for dropping blessings from the sky - no matter which form they come.
