After spending the way I spent my last 30+ hours, today’s thanksgiving is simple. I’m thankful for my job.
I’m thankful that I somehow got my dream job handed to me when I wasn’t qualified and didn’t even know what I wanted to do in life.
I’m thankful for great bosses and coworkers who make every day life fun and enjoyable.
I enjoy my 560 middle schoolers that I get to hang out with each day. They give me many chuckles and inspire me daily. It is a challenge to help a middle schooler realize how great reading is and I try each day to make a difference.
I’m thankful for my fellow librarians in my district. I am very lucky to have people I can vent to, cheer on, share in their personal lives and just have great friends who “get” what I do. I had a great weekend catching up with one of my favorite ladies this weekend.
I am thankful to God for inspiring me with goals for my career and I am thankful I have had to opportunities to reach some of those goals and the ability to keep dreaming up new goals.
I am thankful that I have a school district who sees the importance of professional development and a great state organization, MASL, that provide us with opportunities to meet together with other librarians in the state to share ideas. I have come home rejuvenated and full of new great ideas.
I’m thankful that I have a husband who can hold down the home front while I go on these great adventures and parents and in-laws who are more than happy to step in and help out with the little ones.
I am eternally grateful that God was watching out for us while we were driving yesterday and spared our lives as we were almost in a horrible wreck. I am also thankful that Julie is a defensive driver!
Every day my job is different. I never know what challenges might meet me at the door. I love 98% of it and the other 2% just make me a stronger person and teach me lessons.
I pray that you have a job that constantly challenges you and that you enjoy going to each day.
