New Beginnings

I have a new job! The words do not sound real but I know it's real. I start on Friday.

I never thought that anyone would hire someone "my age." I believed what the world had told me that getting a job after 50 was almost impossible. I let the world block out the fact that God can and does work miracles.

I will be an Administrative Assistant in the Southeast Nebraska Cancer Center. I will do payroll and some HR stuff. Don't know exactly yet.

When they called on Monday, I was thrilled. It made me feel young and useful and needed and wonderful. When I hung up the phone, I thanked God and mentally said "Nah, nah, nah" to the world who had me anxious and doubting.

I will be working in a place and for people who make a difference in people's lives and I love that idea.

So now at 61, I am starting a new job with enthusiasm and hope. It's a new beginning of sorts and I am excited.

God is SO good!

  1. I'm so thrilled for you...I have tears in my eyes. You have given me hope. There are times when I really wonder if there is a job out there for me. This sounds like a dream job for you because you will be so wonderful with the cancer patients. What a beautiful gift. Congratulations to you.
