Feeling Blessed

I know I haven't been very good about posting like I had intended. I don't have a lot to share so I try not to bore you all too much. We are still house hunting. I had no idea just how hard this was going to be. I know God will lead us to the right house at the right time. I just hope it's soon. I know my Mom will be glad to have her house back. I know it's not been easy for her. She is used to quiet nights and now there is an extra dog barking, Eleni's music and my girls constantly bickering from too much time together and not enough space of their own. On that note were are blessed to have a roof over our heads, food in our bellies and of course my job which gives us the insurance we need for Ray's medicines. It's not the best life but it's a blessed life.

I'm not sure if I have ever really said what I do at work. I work in a call center for a Medicaid HMO. We also provide services for a Coordinated Care program offered by one of the Hospitals. I hear so many sad stories everyday. I wonder if the economy is really getting better. I find it hard some days not to get emotionally attached to some of our members. I wish I could help all of those who really need it. When you have lived their lives it's hard not to put your heart into it. Some days you have members who hate the world then there are those who are so appreciative it makes your job worth all the bad calls. It has really made me think about how I speak to the person on the other end of the phone. Like me it's their job not their fault. As many of you know I absolutely hated my job in the beginning. I finally quit hating it and started appreciating the fact I had a job not to mention we have a new manager. I didn't dislike the other manager but I really like the new manager. It's nice to go to a job you don't hate. :)

I am trying to be more positive and happy with what I have not what I want. After all at the end of the day all I want is to enjoy being with my family and friends and making new memories. I have stated so many time how much I miss all of my stuff but the one thing I really miss the most is seeing my pictures everyday. I think it will be one of the first things I unpack.

I hope you all have a great and blessed weekend.

Hi sweetie~ I'm so glad to hear the job is going better, when I was working we had an office supervisor who always put everyone down and was just a miserable woman and had she been replaced it would have made a BIG difference! I'm keeping you & your family in my prayers every day Donna that you find a house soon, but you have a great attitude as so many folks don't have a roof over their heads right now, so sad what this country and this economy have turned into! I hope you get to unpack all those pictures soon:)

Hi Donna,

*big hugs* Its good to see you post. God will show you the perfect place but its always in his time.

I too always wonder if the economy is really getting better. Things I see from here sure don't seem to be. I just have to sit back and count my blessings too. *hugs*

It will all work out... Remember... I am always an email away!

I've been a bad blogger lately and haven't been visiting blogs as I should! I still pray for your family...that you will find a home of your home soon and your lives will be blessed greatly financially!

Have you ever thought that God gave you that job on the other end of the phone talking to people. You have a heart for people and some people just need to hear that in another human's voice! You can be a blessing to others and I know you are to me!

Have a great day!
