Angels Watching Over Me

        Some of you may remember that last Dec. I shared that I had lost my job at the lawfirm where I had worked for 18 years.  The partners decided to close the doors.  I have spent the past year doing some contract work, looking for work and being on unemployment.  Today I started a new job.  This job is the answer to a lot of prayers, and it looks like a perfect fit for me!!!  It will be part time, very flexible, working as an administrative assistant for a tax attorney who now has his own financial planning/ wealth management firm. 
 
This is one of the angels from my angel quilt.  It seems that the angels have been watching over me this year.  Today was a good day, a great start to a new chapter in my life.  Who says an old dog can't learn new tricks?? :)
Hope you all had a great day,
Karen

Congratulations on the new job!
It sounds like a dream come true, flexible hours should leave you with plenty of quilting time!
May God bless this new adventure for you.

How wonderful, Karen! I'm so happy for you! Though I'm guessing your quilt-making uber-productivity of late will slow down a bit, I'm sure you'll make great use of your valuable time. I hope the job turns out to be everything you hoped for.
