    Iam going to be needing a lot of prayer's right now!

    I have not worked for over 8 months.....finances are so bad that I HAVE TO go back to work sick or not!

    One of my students ( from my previous teaching job ) called me and told me he needed my help ......they are re-opening up a huge big restaurant that has two bars and he wants me to train the bartenders and be the bar manager!!!!!!!!!!!

    He told me the job was mine if I wanted it......I have been praying for something to come to me because financially things are just too hard with only one income.......

    so today I went in and I got the job........there were so many people who applied for jobs and I got to sit and listen to who they liked and didn't like and why......

    so I feel so honored that I was hired on the spot...and Iam a lead bartender!

    "No" I do not ever drink but that is what I used to teach is bartending and I also used to bartend private parties so I know the job well.....

    Problem is I have been very sick.......I have spent a lot of days in bed this year.......so Iam going to ask all of you that pray to pray that I can do this.....at least for now!

    If I can do this my family can have a nicer christmas.....and it will make me feel good about myself......I have been so down not having a job!

    So.............I just wanted to tell you all the good news and ask for those prayer's that I can fill the shoes that need to be filled!

    I do not think babysitting is up my alley any longer.....I truly am happy that I gave my friends the weekend time alone.....but a lesson was learned and pretty much " never again" will I do that ! LOL

    Thanks again

    Best of luck. Just be sure to rest all you can and not let the job get to you. It sounds as though it's tailor made just for you. Keep us updated.

    Love, Mikie
