Hallelujah

Didn't know how to spell it but I always say this when prayer seems to be heard! To me, this sounds so positive but as I said, it is in His hands. We must trust Him no matter what we think. Hard to not be sitting on the edge of your seat? I usually count the minutes before I have a BIG appointment. Take a deep breath and feel confident that you can handle whatever they want. You will do great! I am praying that all goes well. Good thing you had incentive to call. Good for you!!!!!!!!! Now I am excited!!!!!!!!

As the last thing that I always said to my daughter before debate tournaments in high school---go and knock 'em dead---now we have an attic FULL of trophies (her plan is to donate them to the special Olympics)--she even came in first place in extemp in Texas four years ago---it's always been our good luck token and now I'm passing the good karma onto you, Barbara, go "knock 'em dead" tomorrow. :)

Awwwww! Thanks!

That is so sweet of your daughter to make that donation. Give her a huge hug for me!

I don't feel the least bit nervous, which I normally would because I am terrified of job interviews. I'm not sure how I will feel tomorrow, but I don't think I will be too nervous. When I started going through what I went through at my last job, I fully turned everything over to God. For the first time in a long time (maybe ever) I was able to let go of it all (okay, I think I held onto about 2 1/2% of it, lol). Before I resigned, I looked my boss right in the eye and said that nothing he could ever do would negatively affect my life because God had bigger plans for me. Those plans might or might not include this part-time job, but I am confident that they do include my making this effort. So like "they" all say now, it's all good.

Barbara
