“Your most precious possession is not your financial assets. Your most precious possession is the people you have working there, and what they carry around in their heads, and their ability to work together.” By: Robert Reich

Two things first before I start digging into my thoughts for the day…..
1) My page is suppose to have ads to it already, but I will check into why that isn’t done already once I get done writing my blog.
2) I hope your not sick of my quotes yet. I’m big on quotes. There have been so many quotes that have drastically impacted my life over the years, that I feel it’s a great tool to pass on. Sometimes someone needs a quote to hang on to through certain stages of their lives.
There are so many thoughts running through my head today. I had my orientation for work today, and I fell more in love with the company that I’m working for today than I was before. I did a lot of research before even applying for this job. I have even been reading the founders families blogs as well. I almost feel like a Chick-Fil-A stalker. However, I wanted to know as much as I could about the company before I even applied.
I won’t go into many details about my work experience with Waffle House because it is in the past, but I did learn a lot about the type of work situations that I don’t want to have to endure again. I do have a love/hate relationship with Waffle House. I loved MANY things about it, but HATED many things about it too. If I could have obtained management over either one of the two local stores that I knew I could handle with ease with my medicial conditions, I would have stayed with them.
However, God had a totally different plan for me. After today, I’m truly grateful, that I listened to his guidance in my life. Yes, I did feel that he wanted me in Chick-Fil-A. The first reason was that he literally spoke to me and told me to apply. The second reason is all the doors opened up for it completely with ease and all the doors to every other opportunity was shut off to me, I couldn’t even get the edge of my toes in it!!
Today I went to orientation. I was impressed first and foremost by the fact that they started it off with prayer. For a company as big as they are to stop and pray, and praise God for giving them everything that they have and for us being there and requesting blessings upon us, that brought happy tears to my eyes (mind you I’m an emotional wreck now that I’m pregnant–even more so than me just being an emotional person to start with.) I have always said that Chick-Fil-A has the best customer service of any place a person can eat at, but now I truly understand and know why.
I was scared to death to tell my boss I was pregnant. That was because every other time, I got nothing, but my bosses being upset about it. However, my current boss was just as excited as I was about it. We will soon see how this plays out with them knowing, but I hate keeping something that important from them. I know I could/may have should have kept it from them until later on, but I just couldn’t do it.
We are in the process of landing a new contract with a major company that we have been trying to get for a long time. We can almost feel it, it’s so close to happening now. I’m so utterly excited about it. It means that Del will have to work more, but it will be worth it. God ALWAYS provides us with what we need when we need it. I feel that it is our chance to prepare completely for our new baby (ies).
I have been suffering with sickness with this pregnancy like I did with my first one, so it’s leading me to believe that we’re going to have a Ziva. However, only God knows that answer at this point. A Matthew will be welcomed and loved just as much though!
Well, I’ve bored you enough for the day. May this find you having a great day.
