So how did the job interview go?

Short answer: good.

Long(er) answer: I'm officially a Child support/respite worker.

I moved here Wednesday afternoon. Had a job interview Friday morning. Had another interview Saturday morning. Started work Monday. The job is exactly what I wanted. It's something I'm interested in and can learn and grow in. It's got room for more education and future job opportunities. It's the kind of job where I can build relationships with the people I work with. The hours are short but consistent.  And the pay is much, much better than I was expecting. Did I mention I get gas money??

When I moved here I was so worried I would have to get a *shudder* retail job.

I feel so blessed that this is the job I got instead.

Because of the nature of my job I won't be sharing many details of what I do and who I work with. Privacy people, it's really important and something we don't practice very often in the internet world.

But I can share how the sunsets here basically blind me on my way home from work.

Not even kidding.  How are you supposed to drive facing that??

Thank you to everyone who prayed for my interview and sent kind thoughts my way. I appreciate it more than you know!


  1. Wow! Such a great job! Praying it goes well! :)

  2. We have the same job! Well, almost. I work with adults :) It's my favourite thing in the whole universe and I would never want another- until I get back to Africa, that is! Good luck with everything! Prepare to be challenged and have your socks blessed right off all at once :)

  3. That's great news, Joanna! And that seems like something you can use when (not if) you get back to Africa. And yes, I agree about the privacy thing too. :) I definitely can't imagine you in a retail job. LOL

    Pray the clouds come at just the right time!


I love to hear from you! Your thoughts and opinions and questions and everything in between. Drop me a note!
