Remembering My Grandma Norma and My First Day On The Job

Hello Readers!

I’m a little late with my post. I wanted it to post on the 21st. November 21, 1929 is when my Grandma was born. She would’ve been 89 today! Sadly she passed away December 26, 2000. She was my mom’s mom. I miss her so much. I can’t even believe that it’s been nearly 18 years since she went to heaven.

Here is a picture of her with my two girls. It was taken in 1996. My girls were so little then. Man, how time flies.

I’m doing okay now. However, this morning on my way to therapy, I cried so hard. I just started thinking of her and wishing her Happy Birthday. Yes, I was actually talking out loud in my car. I do that quite often. I have a lot of my conversations with Jesus that way too. Then thoughts of my mom popped in my head. She’s been in heaven since 2006. I happen to look over towards the left and all these sun rays were coming down through the clouds. It was so beautiful. I needed sunshine today. I got to therapy and we had a good session. She was thrilled to hear about my new job! I also told her about how much I was blogging and about Dr. Perry’s post about me. I let her read it. She thought it was so nice. I told her how good it made me feel. And how I’ve had an increase in followers and comments and that they’ve lifted my spirits. It really does make me feel good when someone calls you an inspiration or an overcomer! Thank you so much everyone.

After therapy, I did my first two Shipt shops. I only did two orders because they recommend you start slow. The first order had to be delivered between 1 and 2 p.m. I’m not going to lie, I was pretty nervous! It wasn’t a very big order so I was relieved. There was one out of stock so I had to do a substitute. Then the customer let me know she was stuck in traffic and wouldn’t be home so I needed to leave the groceries on her front porch. That turned out to be a blessing because my map app brought me to the wrong location and I ended up being a wee bit late. I was using Waze map app. I switched to Google map and found my way! Whew! First order done!

The second order was also not very big. And I actually got through that one a bit quicker. There was one out of stock (brown sugar) and no substitute. Then the customer texted and had me add two cases of pop. I managed that easy enough. I delivered that order on time. My total earnings was $27.32. The schedule goes from Monday to Sunday and payday is on Fridays. All in all, it wasn’t bad. I’m still trying to decide if I wanna go out on Thanksgiving or not.

Well that’s a wrap!

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

Happy Thanksgiving. 🍁🦃
