a silver lining?

I just wanted to check in and let you know that things are looking up. A little. There is a new possibility on the horizon, but I don't want to talk about it just yet. It's not a baby, I will tell you that much.

Thank you for your prayers and well wishes. They mean a ton right now, especially when my self-confidence is really low. You know what is keeping my head above water? The fact that my Michaels boss, Steve, keeps asking me back. I worked for him for about 10 months the first time, and he has asked me to come back twice now for short periods. Then, last night, my MIL came into the store looking for spray paint and I introduced them. He told her she was lucky to have me for a daughter-in-law. How nice, right?

It isn't the same as having a five star teaching evaluation from my principal, but this is a manager who values my work and enjoys having me as an employee. This (library) job is the first job I ever had where the boss wasn't happy with my performance all the time. And I think it says more about him than me. I've had how many jobs over the years and this guy doesn't like me? Whatever.

So, while I'm still stuck working two jobs for the time being, hopefully there is something new around the corner. Charlie thinks that God is trying to close this door because he doesn't like how I'm being treated. How's that for supportive? :)

Keep us in your prayers.

I just read your story. Sorry you are going through this. I have gone through a similar situation and after I left found my "Dream" job. You are in my prayers.

Yay Charlie! He's so right. It's funny, but even if you know that you're doing a good job, being unappreciated is so hard. Praying that you get an AWESOME new position soon!
