Another day

I know things will look up. I have learned to be patient at this point in my life. I know I am capable of doing just about any job. I am really enjoying the ophthamology education and am very thankful for it. I have a week off and start in again next week, I am really looking forward to getting back into it. I hope I can find a job before I am finished with school. I have a lot of life left and alot of energy and hopefulness. I know I have been a good mom and really enjoy my children. They are good kids and make good decisions even when they are still young, they really are lovely people and are alot of fun. I just wish our family could have stayed together and been a secure feeling for them. I will always be pained by this fact. But I plan to stay on course and be the best I can with what I have. I know from my own childhood experience that it is not how much we have but who we love and who loves us. It is such a blessing to be dedicated to someone whether it is a spouse, children or something we like to do. Money does not bring peace and happiness when there is strife which is an intrinsic problem within humanity. I knew as a small child that I just wanted to be loved unconditionally because I loved unconditionally maybe to a fault. Just love people for who they are and what they bring to the table not what they can do for you and just enjoy them and hopefully they are respectful.

Looking for work

Well, this is my first day to write a blog, I'm not sure how to begin but after the holidays I am back looking for a job. Since I am in a opthalmic tech. program that is what I am looking for.
I am 48 and female, so what fun that is. Although I think I am pretty good looking for my age and pretty darn smart, I think that intimidates those young 30 somethings, I guess they are afraid I will tell them what to do. Not a chance, I only give advice when it is asked for and am happy to help when I can. I am the same person I was 25 years ago, only older and wiser and had some heart wrenching experiences. I look at the jobs for professionals and know that older women could do any job if they have half a brain. Unless it is surgery, that takes expertise and I am not claiming to be able to do that. I do know that I have counseled so many free of charge in my private life and work life only didn't get paid for it. So maybe that will be my next vocation, as soon as I can find a position I will continue if I want to in the college circuit once again. Don't believe them when they say an education will get you that job! I chose from my heart and stayed home and raised my children and still have a few years before they are grown but was left by my husband because he thought he could have both worlds of other women and power. I have found myself laid off from my job and have little work experience so I begin again from sqare one ,but plan to work until the end of my life in one way or another. I am here to serve others because that is what makes my heart glad, only if employers really believed that!
That is all for my first blog, I have so much to say.
