Disguised Blessings

Last Monday, a Temp position in my department as a Lead came through.  I felt a very strong urge to apply.  I worried about having to go full time and many other things but I felt like I needed to act on it.  I called Ben and we chatted about it.  I wrote the letter, sent it to Ben to read and then sent the letter in.

Wednesday afternoon I IMed my Supervisor verifying she had gotten the email.  She told me they would be interviewing on Friday.  I told her I could not do Friday but could do Thursday.  Thursday morning came and I drove my hubby up to work the Ice Skating show we were working that weekend.  I was not supposed to work on Thursday but when I got there I was asked to come back later.  I had the day off work because my mom had fallen down the stairs and needed some help with my nephew.  Anyway, things changed and I ended up not needing to help my mom and so I agreed to go work the show on Thursday.

Thursday at about noon I got a call from my supervisor asking me to come in at 1:30 for an interview.  I was supposed to be at the show by 2:00 and the office and the show were only minutes apart so it all worked perfectly.

I went to the interview and then went to the show.  They told me they would let me know on Friday.  Friday night I got an email stating they needed 1 more day and they would contact us on Saturday.  Saturday night I got a call asking me to be the new Temp Lead for The Queues Crew.

I was sooo scared of the what, when, where, why and how but KNEW it was right.  I said yes and then they asked me to start Monday morning at 0700.  Crazy!

Now a little back story.  Thursday is our "payday" even though officially it is a Friday payday.  Thursday night Ben's check was not direct deposited into our account.  Friday night when we got home from the show at about 11:30 pm I checked the account and still no paycheck.  Ben texted his boss and was informed Direct Deposit did not go out that week and paper checks would be issued.  Ben could get his check Monday morning. STRESS!!!  Seriously...lots and lots of stress.

Monday morning Ben went into work.  He went to the office to get his check and was called in by HR manager.  He was informed he would have a BUSY day because 25% of the company was being layed off.  Ben's department of 1 paid off because he would be saved from lay off but many changes would come (such as no overtime which has been the 1 thing making it that we "made it" each month).

Monday morning I started my new temp position at Jetblue.  I am working 16 hours more per week.  Just what we need to make up for Ben's no overtime.


I think not!!

I KNOW that this situation has been a HUGE blessing from the Lord.  Even though going full time and working from the center had me stressed on how it would work, in the end it worked out BETTER for us.  We would not make it had it not been for this little bump and nudge.

I am so grateful for the promptings from the Spirit from our loving Heavenly Father.  He KNOWS us.  He knows our needs.  He cares about us and He wants us to succeed in life!  Our lives have been richly blessed by that small prompting!
