With November begins my annual effort to remember my blessings. I’ve done this for a couple of years now. I like the reminder, as we head into the cold dark season, that I’m pretty lucky.
Today I’m thankful for having a job I enjoy. I don’t work much and I don’t make much, but I make enough to cover our weekly food expenses plus a few other small things. I get to work around books and people looking for stories or information. My coworkers are nice and my bosses are learning that I like to stay occupied. All in all, I’m glad I put my courage in the “sticking place” and applied. I’m glad they took a chance on someone who hasn’t been in the work place for many, many years so had no current references.
