After several months of living a nightmare (but I never gave up) I just landed a wonderful job and start tomorrow.
I want to thank all my HP Friends who have been there through my 'adventure from Hell' and providing me with kind words and prayers. Without you I really don't believe I would be writing this right now. There were many days that were unimaginably harder than anything I've ever done in my life which included some desperate thoughts running through my mind.
To my HP Family THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR BEING TRUE FRIENDS.
Way to go Sarra! Just in time for the holidays. God bless you and the best of luck.
Yeah for you Sarra!!!! I am sooooo very happy for you!!!! Great Great News!!!! You are such a brave and strong soul!!!! Congratulations!!!!
Wonderful news! I have been waiting for this, counting the days! HURRAAAAY! I'm so happy for you, now we can all enjoy your anecdotes and future Hubs, you are a great writer, as well as a courageous person.
Have a great first day at work, and I will be sure to send some mental Xmas cheer to you! Best of luck!
How did I miss this??????????????
Oh, I am so very happy for you. How are things going with the job? WhooHoo!God is good and faithful.
I can't think of any news I would rather have seen pop up. That's wonderful, Sarra! You've had a tough time of it lately, I know, but it truly does sound like things are looking up.
You are more than welcome to whatever encouragement I've been able to offer - there is no one I know more deserving of it.
Christmas came early! I am so, so happy for you.
You are a brave lady and you truly deserved a piece of good fortune - well done.
Thank you SimeyC! It's such a good feeling to be employed again you just can't imagine
It is so good to see this written, so so good- a roof over your head and a job - what could be better? I hope it all works out well for you. It is really cold here and I have been trying to imagine how you have coped- but my imagination does not go that far- you are a real inspiration to us all
Congratulations Sarra. Things are tough in the Uk too. So I know how much it means to land a lifesaving job in these troubled times. So pleased for you. Will now start reading your hubs to find out more.
That's wonderful news Sarra thank you for sharing your good news. Best wishes for great times ahead
Awesome news, Sarra. I'm so glad you got that wonderful job. Here's wishing you all the best on your new job and in your life... Cheers!
Congrats Sarra! A lady told me once: When you are at the bottom of the barrel, there is only one way to go, and that way is up!
You do remember that things happen in threes? In other words, even more good things are ahead. And a sincere congratulations.
Congratulations, Sarra. Just goes to show that your life can turn around in just a few short weeks.
I'm thrilled for you! Keep us posted. And if there's anything you need, email me. If I can help, I'll be glad to.
Good things come to those who wait ... as long as those they work their buns off while they wait.
What a great way to close out 2012 and ring in 2013!
Congrats and best of luck with the new gig.
I'm very happy for you Sara... I hope many more good things come your way and that you have great Christmas and an even better New Year....
Congratulations! I hope this will be a great experience for you and this new phase's positive intensity will revile the old's negativity.
You guys are all just the best!!! I start training today and I'll be working at an answering service which is right up my alley and only 10 blocks away which is an easy 20 minute walk since I don't have a car. I'll be working mostly nights, weekends and holidays which doesn't bother me one bit. Many years ago I owned my own answering service so this will be a good job for me.
Well, I'm off for my first day of work. Whoo hoo this feels so good!
Congrats! At this difficult time when no job offers are much available, you did a great job. Good Luck! Hope you have a great life from now on.
Hello Everyone. I haven't been on HP lately but there is a good reason for it. I'm working full time at the answering service and work 2nd shift. What a busy place it is as we answer calls from all over the country and the clients range from doctors to tow companies. I know that at the end of my shift I have saved a life for sure as we get quite a bit of emergency calls for doctors to include people who want to commit suicide or new babies coming into the world.
I have Tuesday and Thursday off so tomorrow I will be writing something new for all of you to read and enjoy.
So, have you missed me? lol. I'm so happy and can't wait to get my first paycheck which will arrive in 2 weeks. Now to save up for a car, whoo hoo. I have been blessed for sure and even looking back on the entire year I have always believed there is a reason for everything. No matter what has happened I am not the one to question these things. I have grown stronger but not bitter, my hair has gone from golden to silver, my health is not good but I have my dogs and Lady Clarol can take care of the rest.
Been waiting to hear from you, Sarra, about the job. Glad to hear you're happy in the work and it really does sound fulfilling.
I would have to say that, not having gone bitter over your tough, tough experience you don't need Lady Clarol to put a false face on when facing the world; you do just fine as you.
Looking forward to your hub.
Sarah I have not had the pleasure of meeting you on hubs, but just reading your joyful response in getting a job made me smile. I am very happy for you! Wishing you the very best.
Good for you. I love stories of perseverance. It is a great thing to share to make people stronger.
One can never give up as once you do you die and I'm not ready to do that yet.
Great news that you are enjoying your job .............roll on pay day..........
Whoo hoo I can't wait. One week from this Wed and I'll have a paycheck. Saving up for a car!!!
Yeah $$$$ finally...what a wait you have had. Savor that first check!!! Many Many more blessing flow to you now!!! Yeah you!!! So happy things have turned around for you Sarra!!!
Glad to hear life is treating you kinder Sarra. Best wishes for the future!
Thank you Justsilvie! It's been the toughest year of my life but I pulled through. There is only one way to go and that is up!!! Now I get to save up for a car whoo hoo. I'm becoming independant once again and what a good feeling it is. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
I think the saying "what does not kill us makes us stronger" is true! You are living proof tenacity to get your life back on track pays off. Merry Christmas to you and your's also and may we both have a happy and healthy next year.
Sarra, you've survived because at the age of 50 you are at the prime of your life. Women don't get older, they just get better! Merry Christmas
I'm so glad to hear this good news, Sarra. Congrats to you for hanging in there and never giving up. I prayed for you. Bless you and I wish you the best.
I also got a new job after two months of struggle.
Congrats Sarra, great to hear and well deserved I'm sure. I'm glad I popped over here and found this thread, it's uplifted me. I hope things continue well for you and wish you the best.
thanks Carozy, unfortuantely the office closed down so I'm not working again. I do have an interview with a doctor who has come up with new treatments for fibromyalgia that are seemingly working. I will be writing an article about it and in hopes if he likes my work can do more for him with pay.
