Sunday 2/28/10 - "HURRAY, HALLELUJAH!"

"HURRAY, HALLELUJAH!"

"Hurray and Hallelujah", I'm yelling out in my heart and mind.

DAUGHTER GOT A JOB!

Daughter had an interview early last week with the owner of an insurance agency who is a friend of a girl she met in Alcoholics Anonymous and who does her hair (which, BTW, is gorgeous). She then had an interview on Thursday with the manager who would be her boss. It went well and she met with the co-owner after that meeting. When she came home she felt somewhat sure she had the job, but it didn't seem completely official. She was to call Monday. Then Friday, they called and she found out the job was her's.

Daughter knows nothing about insurance and they know it, but she had that winning personality and a God of her understanding guiding things. (This is reminiscent of my first job when I first got sober. I happened upon it through a member of AA.)

The first three months will be a time to see how she adjusts to the insurance business. They will pay for her training. Needless to say, she is ecstatic. She has been unemployed for a year and a half. God is good. She is happy, I am happy. She is grateful, I am grateful.

So.....Friday night we went to Red Lobster to celebrate. Lobsterfest is going on and we both ordered lobster and we both loved it.

I thank you for your prayers.
I'm saying good-bye for now with happiness in my heart and a smile on my face.

Oh, hooray!!!
I believe the Higher Power knows exactly what we need and wants to give it to us at exactly the right time. He'll open the door when the time is right, and we can trust His judgment (better than our own!)
I'd be singing and dancing too.
