This week has been a great week! Lots to celebrate!
I am enjoying my new job. The first three weeks have been all about acclimating to the new job. Learning about all the different aspects and responsibilities. This last week, I have been assigned to multiple projects. I am even getting to take part in a workshop this next week, which is a great way to learn more about the company!
Wednesdays are days I have started to look forward to the most! During lunch on Wednesdays, I get to fellowship with other women that are believers. This last Wednesday was a time to get to know one another while we planted herbs. (1st and 2nd pictures above) We got to choose from a variety of herbs. I picked lavender and rosemary.
Did you know that…
Lavender = Devotion
Rosemary = Remembrance
I knew flowers had different meanings, but I did not know that herbs had different meanings as well.
After Wednesday, I got inspired by planting these herbs. I decided that I wanted some greenery for my desk at work. Just a short trip to Hobby Lobby and I was able to get supplies to create a terrarium. (3rd pic) All the greenery is fake. I still think it livens up my desk. A couple of my coworkers made hilarious comments:
- I love young people. They do all the cool stuff.
- Are you moving in?
No, obviously I am not moving in at work. I have lots of stuff on my desk because it can be a great conversation starter. I want to be able to get to know the people where I am working.
Lastly, the bonus to working where I am is there is a Starbucks blocks from the office. When we had a cold front come through, of course I needed to go get a hot drink. (last pic) Lol!
Hope y’all are having a marvelous weekend!
Until next time…

There are just some days when God uses certain songs to speak to my soul (He knows I love music!). Today was one of those days.
I had gotten through a long hard day at work. As I walked out the door (end of the work day), I found myself in a funk.
Why was I feeling this way? I don’t know. Yes, I had a hard day at work. My definition…A hard day, in my opinion, is when you get lots of good work done (accomplish what you need to for that day), but you may have made a mistake or two.
I was letting this work day weigh me down on me like a sack of bricks!
My routine before I pull out of the parking lot at work is to turn on whatever I am going to listen to on my iPhone, start the car, and drive home. Today, I wanted to listen to my music. I have my different playlists I create on iTunes. The one I have been listening to the most is my 89.7 Powerfm playlist. I made sure that ‘To Hell with the Devil’ by Stryper was on it.
Driving down the freeway, it was the second song that came on (purely God’s timing!). While the intro was playing I realized the sole reason I was in this funk was only because of the Enemy. He was using this hard day and trying to turn it into a miserable one.
I just had to laugh!! I cannot believe I fell for His schemes. It is so easy to get sucked in, isn’t it?
So thank you so much Stryper! That song spoke to my soul today.
We avoid them. Don’t want to be stuck behind them while driving. Some of us purposely go a different route to try and get ahead of them (I do!). But…
A bus full of crazy kiddos brightened up my day.😂
At one of the stop lights on my way home from work, I was side by side with a school bus. Kids were waving like crazy and make funny faces. It was exactly what I needed! Lots of laughs!! After a long day of work, God knew that was the perfect medicine!
A lot has happened since last time I wrote my Gilmore Girls’ blog post. Big and exciting news!
Let me start at the beginning, I am so thankful to have found a great church to be plugged into. I love how friendly everybody is, and how encouraging they were to me when I was trying to find a job!
Through networking at church God blessed me with a new job! Woohoo!
These days networking is a huge part of finding a job. If you are in the place I was, applying to jobs everyday, with random interviews, and you are not having any success. Then I encourage you to network like crazy! It is all who you know! Really!
One of the men, at the Alamo Ranch Oakhills Church campus knew a friend who had a company that was hiring technical writers. I had done similar work and had the experience to get the job. It was the most exciting thing to have received that call back message that asked if I wanted to accept their job offer!
I love the people where I work! Great atmosphere! I learn something new everyday, which I love!
What are you thankful for?
“If you don’t think you have any blessings remember your heart is still beating.” – (Not sure who the author of this quote is but I just love it!)
I am thankful for:
- Family and Friends (that did not stop encouraging me when I was unemployed)
- Friends I met through church
- A NEW JOB!!! Woohoo!
- Parents that pray for me everyday.
- My nieces that give me a laugh when I need it via FB.
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family or friends or both!
