my ever thankful heart

I just love it when the U.S. celebrates Thanksgiving holiday. I am loving this holiday more this year especially now that I just got back from working in traditional office. The company I work for follows the American holidays in determining our non-working days. This is why I was fortunate to have enjoyed a two-day respite from work. In fact, I'd consider it as a four-day vacation from work if I were to include Saturday and Sunday. Yey! Thank you, America! :-)

In connection with the Thanksgiving holiday, I told my husband I am going to post again something about gratitude. I always have a lot of things to be thankful for in my life. Overall, life has been great. Despite a few setbacks here and there, I feel like the Lord has been very kind to me and my family. With God's help, there weren't troubles that me and my husband weren't able to endure together. I think I've said or written this somewhere. Why do I feel like I keep repeating myself? *grin*

work and career matters

After careful consideration, I have decided to go back to working in traditional office. It was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made considering that I have always wanted to stay and work at home so I can also be where my daughter is. Among the many plausible reasons I have, recent health concerns in the family added more weight to the decision that at least one of us should be back working in traditional office setting so that the whole family can have health insurance as part of the benefits. Anyway, I am not going to be working in the office the whole day and my Saturdays and Sundays are always free.

Indeed, even as a freelancer, work-at-home employee or a casual worker, it’s really important to have an amount set aside for contingencies such as health setbacks and other emergencies. Sometimes, we tend to put these things off (if not forget) hoping that we would stay healthy all the time and especially since we’ve always known ourselves to be not the sickly type.

However, we…

Tell You What

Sorry for this late update… but I already have a job! Yipeeee.. I haven’t written anything for awhile now because I’ve been busy with my newfound career online. Yes, I’m happy to know that I got a job that I also love doing and it’s not keeping me away from home. I still have to work full eight hours a day though so I get to check on Dipdip with her nanny downstairs when I do my breaks. I’m just happy and grateful to the Lord for giving me the job that I wanted and just when we already needed it.

So, this is again another proof of God's unfailing love. People may turn their backs on us but the Lord will never abandon us in our time of need. There may be tough times but all these will make us stronger and wiser. And more GRATEFUL for His LOVE! I’m giving back all these to the glory of God. Thank You Oh God for sending me my new employer. Thank You for making all these things possible. Thank you for being such a sweet GOD! In You will we always put our trust.
