unmerited divine assistance

I get to keep my job. After spending two weeks feeling confused/scared/excited/eeeeeks!! about my job situation and how it would ultimately affect our little family, I had gotten to the point where I was mostly apprehensive. And a little hopeful that maybe things didn't have to end. We were prepared to make it work, but thought this might be worth fighting for. So I made the decision to have a scary conversation with the head of my department. And he subsequently decided that my current position was the best one for me and them, and I didn't have to give it up.

I didn't realize how thankful I am for this job until it was almost gone. Or how much I really do enjoy what I do, even on the yuckiest of days. And how my colleagues bring joy to my quiet dining room where I type away until we can finish building the desk for our office. And when I finally came to that realization, it was all given back to me.

I say it all the time and I'm still amazed on a regular (daily) basis: we are so blessed.
