Three years ago I started graduate school. Graduation seemed very far off at that time, and there were days when I doubted my ability to meet all of the requirements. I was awarded my master of social work last weekend at St. Catherine University. Now the question of what to do with the rest of my life lingers.
I like my current job, but experience a great deal of frustration related to care issues that I cannot control. The job does not make use of the clinical knowledge and skills that I acquired during the past 3 years. Despite this fact, I am very well compensated both hourly and in the form of commissions. Should I stay or should I go, is the question that has plagued me over the past few weeks.
I am a strong believer that God places opportunities in our path at just the right time. That being said, I have decided that I will apply for jobs that interest me while remaining thankful for the attributes of my current job that work well for my life right now. If I am meant to move on, the right offer will come along.
On another topic, with no homework lingering, I have turned my attention to my yard. I was at Highland Nursery the other evening and I happened to glance up from the counter. Above me were hanging the most breathtaking bird feeders that I had ever seen. I asked the cashier to check the price, strongly believing that they would be upwards of $50. Well to my great surprise the one that most captivated me was under $30. So this cheapskate decided to purchase it, because the mere sight of it gave me so much joy. It is currently hanging from a shepard’s hook in my garden. Enjoy!
Did I mention that it is a frog!
