... come to those who wait, work hard to get them, and deserve them. I can finally share with you all that my good thing has finally come. I was temping for this company long term - 1 year next week to be exact, and as of the 1st of the month I am an official PERMANENT employee. Yep, I got lucky. They decided to hire me. Come Monday morning I sign off on the rest of the paper work and do my orientation. It feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I have some stability, benefits, and a salary. Honestly this is my first salaried position. I won't take it for granted. I worked too hard to get here. I also know how many people are out there struggling that would kill for an opportunity like this. I'm thankful. There are no words to really express how I feel. Relieved? Excited? Happy? Nervous? I was ecstatic when I received the offer letter, and my eyes damn near fell out of my head when I saw the salary. More than I was asking for, and more than I thought they were going to give me. I'm so thankful they were that generous. This will give me the opportunity to start get my life in order. The Mister and I recently got ourselves a little hoopty to get around in, so with the car and steady income, we can breathe a little easier. Better things are coming, I see it on the horizon!
