Daily Thought – September 28

I had my first day of training yesterday in the department and it went pretty well. Lots to learn but I’m good with that. The best part of the day was conversing with other adults. It’s been 4 months since I got out west and have only had limited access to others. What a lovely treat that was.

It’s going to be a learning experience but there are lots of helpful people near me. I’m ready to learn!

And so life goes on…

Well my time is up in my hometown, and I have now made the first step in my move just west of there. It’s just a short drive from Welland – about an hour away – so I will be able to get back and visit my family and friends often. But the time is now for the next chapter in my life. I must say, I have had so many chapters in this life of mine, I can honestly say I get excited every time I turn the page.

This next chapter involves me becoming a grandmother (and my daughter becoming a first time mom). I am excited for her and for me! We know she is having a boy and this grandma has bought far too much for a baby that hasn’t even arrived yet! It’s going to be great!!

The other part of this chapter is a new career. I have several ideas of where I want to go and what I want to do, with many things coming to mind. One big thing I want to do, when it’s safe to do so, is to get back into some sort of catering business like I had in Alberta. I loved doing that, and cooking and baking always brings me so much joy. That’s just part of the things I want to do. So much I want to do, so little time to do it all in!

And so, life goes on. There will be ups and downs, and I am prepared for both. To be successful in life, you must realize that not everything will go perfectly, and that is perfectly okay with me. I am ready to accept any challenges that this new chapter brings my way!
