Day 8 – 30 Days of ME!

Hello Readers!

Here we are at Day 8 already.  Is September going fast for you too?  I can’t believe it’s already the 11th.  With that, may we never forget the horrible events of that day in 2001.  God bless all of those affected by the tragic events of 9/11.

Today’s topic is…Short term goals for this month and why?

I have so many ideas for goals.  But right now, what tops my list is finding a job since I lost mine yesterday.  And the why or the reason is because I have to have at least one house payment made by October 9. My house payment is $926 per month.  I’m currently 3 months behind now that it’s September.

Aside from my mortgage, I’m behind on my car payment and utilities too so finding a job is crucial.  I mentioned yesterday I have a phone interview this Friday.  I also have a friend who is the hiring supervisor at a local hospital and she mentioned that there is a position that will be posted in a couple days and she’ll let me know when it is.  At which point, I will apply for it.  She said it pays $20/hour and after training, it’s a work from home position.  That would be incredibly ideal for me!  So I’m hopeful for that as well.

It’s all in God’s hands though.  Speaking of God’s hands.  Today, I had Girl Talk in the morning.  That is the bible study group I attend.  Afterwards, I took a ride out to Lake Michigan as the water always soothes my soul.  While I was out there, I got a call from my pastor.  He offered to help put money towards my mortgage payment!  I cried.  I couldn’t believe it.  Apparently, someone from Girl Talk called him and asked him to give me a call and talk with me because of how emotional I was and that I had lost my job, etc.  I love those ladies so much!  I love my pastor as well.  God is SO good always.  I know I’m not weathering this storm alone!  Praise God.

I went off on a little tangent there. But I just had to share that news.

So, here’s something to chuckle about.  My daughter is watching TV over in the family room which is only several feet away from me and she’s got the air conditioner running. I’m here at my desk and behind me, I have my space heater on because I’m just cold!  How crazy are we?!  I have a sweatshirt on as well.  I told her it was cold and to turn the air off but she doesn’t think so.  Brrr!!  Oh what will I do when the snow flies!?

That’s it for me tonight.

Wherever you are in this beautiful world, I wish you peace, love and smiles.

❤ Dottie
