Everything Happens for A Reason

I guess what they say is true, "Good things come to those who wait." Well I must say that I am not a very patient person so this goes much deeper for me. But, I can finally say that through my determination (and confidant-boosting talks from my husband, family and friends)

I had my interview yesterday at 2:00 at The Appletree Learning Center. I was really nervous, because this was the most "ideal" job for me. As I'm walking into the building I take a deep breath, and tell myself to relax ... what could possibly go wrong? Well, nothing went wrong .. but I would like to think that what did happen was God's way of saying HIRE THIS GIRL (lol).

As I'm sitting in the hallway, I begin to feel the ground shaking, and the pictures on the walls start swaying. Now, you can imagine that I feel like I'm losing it, because you dont have earthquakes on the East Coast. Not normally. Well what seemed like an eternity, everything came to a stand still and everyone started coming out into the hallway. When it hits that, yes this was indeed an earthquake, the center was automatically forced to go into Evacuation Mode. So instead of going straight in for my interview, I am now being escorted into a sanctuary room with about 30+ kids. I really was surprised by how well all the kids listened and how well they got along with everyone. I even made "friends" with three of the little girls while we sat indian style in the dark, watching Veggie Tales.

After about 30 minutes of this I finally was able to have my interview. I dont know if it was how everyone could see that I was able to interact with the children, or if I just hit if off really well with the director, but I was hired on the spot. Apart of me wants to believe that it was the good Lord above, acting in mistyerious ways .. giving me the opportunity to SHOW that I can do and want this job! Either way, I am very thankful & look forward to starting my first day on FRIDAY! =)
