(Flowers my Dad got me when I was home in August.)
I got the contract!
It is not quite full time hours but it will be enough
to pay the rent, my bills and I think save a little bit.
The timing of this feels like a miracle to me!
I had just gotten back from the bank
to get laundry money
and realized that by the time my expenses were
paid for February
I would have very little left...
I don't know any details yet about the contract,
just that I will be there at 9 AM on Wednesday
and I already know some of the things they will want me to work on.
The person is also going to forward my name to two other
places that may need an information specialist
(another word for librarian :) )
I feel like my long job search is finally bearing some fruit.
And I can stay in Ottawa.
As you know I interviewed for positions outside of this area,
and I was willing to go where God led;
but I knew very much that the level of stress
would be a lot higher
by moving (i.e. starting over with everything,
knowing no one, new place, city, apartment)
and starting a new job at the same time.
I know a lot of people have to move for work,
but I am glad if I don't have to.
It is not easy to do and living alone with only Cleo,
I was really not looking forward to losing the community
I am in. It takes years to rebuild community...
I am so thankful that it appears that I am getting some work here.
I just want to resume
my working life and go from there...
THANK YOU for your prayers.
