Employee Of The Month

So, remember that forboding feeling I awakened to this morning? Yeah, this was the worst day I've had at work in almost 8 years. It's a long story. The jist...well I was assertive, said something to someone who I felt needed to hear what I had to say, I said it mild-mannered (although they claimed otherwise), and...I've been put on 90 day probation for insubordination, and termination has been threatened. I guess I didn't learn much from my study this morning. Why am I so dense? Why couldn't I just let the creep be the creep? Why'd I have to jump into the creep-hole with them?
Today was one of those days where I would rather have stayed at home with fighting children, dirty laundry, dirty dishes, that weird, unidentifiable "thing" I found in the corner of the playroom, and the occasional "potty" accident among other things.
Okay, so in the midst of my tearfully telling Dan what happened at work today, Adam shouts out, "hey mom! what's employee of the month?" Dan cracked up laughing as I replied, "it's sure not me sweetie." I guess every gray cloud does have a silver lining.

I am so sorry today was so bad. I will pray for you to get some rest, comfort, and clarity about what to do. You are way too good to be treated this way. Way too good (a little bit stupid but good).

Thanks Tiffany. I didn't need to be reminded about my stupidity, but you're just as stupid as I am so I'm not offended.

Remember that this has nothing to do with your value as a person and your position before Christ. And, while it is a possibility that they may have been partially in the right, it is also possible that they were totally in the wrong.

Either way... I think you already know that it is time to move on. Remember... God's word says "leave the past behind. Behold.. I will do a new thing".

It's time to go.... but that's just my bossy and hormonal opinion.

Thanks Kris, you're awesome! You are so good about puting things into perspective. Thanks for caring and sharing, and thanks expecially for your friendship!

I do know how to spell especially, I just don't know how to edit my comments...
