I possibly may have found a job! Doing something that I've always wanted to do, since I was a teenager. As many of you know, when I was little, I was crippled. During that time, my teacher that came to my home to teach me, introduced me to another home bound student, Janet. As you may remember, I wrote about her in my blog. She passed away just a few months back. Janet was mentally and physically handicapped, and the dearest person you would ever want to meet! Because of her, I have ALWAYS wanted to help others just like her.
Her Mom encouraged me to volunteer at the Parks Program when I was 13, to help in a summer program for the mentally handicapped. We taught them art, songs, and games. Also once a week, we took them swimming and bowling! When I turned 16, they hired me to work there, and I finally got paid. The Special Olympics participation was the highlight of the summer. Everyone was a winner there! It was so much fun. My dream was to go to college, and become a special education teacher.
The other day, I walked into a place to apply for a job, and as soon as I walked in, it was as if I had come home. I have never had that happen before! As soon as I felt that, I knew God's hand was in it. I filled out the application, talked to the woman who managed the place, and then got to meet a few of the people that lived there. There was even a Golden Retriever, that came up to greet me, that looks just like mine! She sat down in front of me, and gave me her paw just
like Zeke does:) I had to look twice, to make sure it wasn't him!
The lady called me today, and it sounds very promising that I may get the job. I would like to ask you all to pray for me. If I do get this, there will be two
weeks training in another town, a physical, and other things that I will have to do to qualify. I need to be certified to pass put prescriptions, for one thing. I believe with all my heart, God is in this. I have no doubts. I knew, like I said, as soon as I walked in:)
