Best of Both Worlds

If all goes well, I will be starting my 10th school year this fall.  Although I've held many positions throughout the years, I hope to return to my last position as the attendance clerk in our elementary building.

I will never have too many digits in my bank account working at the school but I have become rich in many other ways:

I've been able to get to know my boys' friends, their friends' parents and teachers.  I also hope I've brought a positive influence on our many students as well as a smile to my co-workers.

Because I only work 24 hrs a week, I'm also able to enjoy being a stay at home mom.  Having the summers off to dedicate to my family has been priceless.

The cons:  Because I only work 24 hrs a week, I have zero cash and I am unable to get my boys everything they need... or want.  I'm also unable to take some of the financial stress off Gman's plate.

I am a hard worker, dedicated and willing to do anything needed to get the job done.  I enjoy my job but after all these years, I'm losing hope that I will one day land a full time position.

God has a plan for all of us.  Although a full time job office job close to home would be my ideal, I'll face each day knowing I am exactly where I'm supposed to be.
