Everything DOES happen for a reason

I've been looking back through my blog for grins and giggles and to see if I do anything other than bitch and whine, and I found this post. At the time, I sure was disappointed not to have gotten a job at this other company after interviewing for three different positions, all of which seemed pretty well suited to me. All things happen for a reason, though, even if we can't see it at the time. We have a new hire starting after Thanksgiving, and she came up for our luncheon earlier this week. She formerly worked at this other company, and now it seems that people are being laid off, there's reorganization going on, a lot of uncertainty in the ranks, and it sounds like a place I really wouldn't want to be right now. God has a way of looking out for me even when I can't or won't look out for myself - had I gotten a job there, I could either be wondering when the pink slip was coming or just out of a job altogether. So. My job may suck, but at least I have one. All things for a reason.

And a sucky job is better than none.

Very true. If I had no job, I'd be up the proverbial creek without a paddle, so I'll take what I've got until something better works out.
