Entering the "Working Mom" Force

We decided last week that I needed to see what I could do about getting a job. I was not feeling positive about finding anything seeing how so many are out of work now and are struggling to find new jobs. So after I got over the dread I laced up my boots and hit the pavement. Now I am a very religious person and truley feel that we can be guided and directed to where we need to be. I fasted and prayed to find an employer and work place that would be best for me and especially a situation where Miranda would still be able to have her needs met. I wasn't fully convinced that I needed to be a "working mom" but I feel if I do the work then I'll get to where I need to be. So I went over to the community center where I used to work and let them know I was looking, no promises. I took a scentsy sampler over to one of my past customers who wanted to order. After I did that I thought hey let me go over to this pre school close by and apply. Now I had applied with them 2 years before but was onlly looking for part time work and had called about 6 months ago as well to see if they had anything. My neighbor works there and we have discussed it as well. So I thought no harm if I tried it one more time. I went in and my neighbor was in the office and the other director ( I was not aware my neighbor was the assistant director). They told me that they had a teachers position open and were interviewing. So I took the application home filled it out and decided to return it that afternoon. I also needed to get a copy of my school credits. so I went to the college and got a copy as well as seeing if they had any positions open. They only had a temp position open and it was part time. So I returned my application to the first school and was told to go get my clearances done. I called the next day (by my neighbor) for an interview on wed. ok. I went in with all my clearances and even a few referral letters I knew they'd ask me for. The interview went great. I thought to myself. Now if I don't get this job it will be because Heavenly Father has other plans for me. I did everything I could. So that afternoon. I get a call from the owner offering me the job and asking if I could start the next day. (they new I would be gone this next week). So on thurs I started my orientation and friday was my first day. Miranda goes to the kindergarten after care. She said she didn't miss me so I'm taking that as a good sign. I get to teach the 1year old class. I'm excited to get to decorate my classroom and plan my lessons. I feel this is where I need to be and I am truly blessed. "Lead me guide me walk beside me help me find the way"
