A Season of Gratitude

Today, November 1st, marks the start of 30 days of gratitude here at Homegrown Joy. Each day I’ll highlight a small blessing or piece of gratitude from my day.  I hope you might join in with me and share your grateful moments too.

Today’s blessing comes from an opportunity.  I received an email tonight informing me that I have a practicum interview spot at Wonders & Worries (W&W).  This hit me with a wave of excitement and gratitude all at once.  It was less than 36 hours ago that I contacted W&W to get details about their practicum.  After speaking with their receptionist, I found out that they were currently interviewing for the spring spot.  She suggested emailing the Child Life Specialist (CLS) conducting the interviews as soon as possible with my resume and cover letter.  I quickly updated my resume and edited my cover letter, trying to be diligent and not make rushed errors.  I said a prayer and emailed it.  A couple of hours ago tonight, I received a response from the CLS informing me that she would like to interview me.  The only problem is she has to interview me before Friday of this week because she has promised a decision to all the other interviewees on Friday.  Luckily, I am available during her few free hours on Thursday afternoon.    I am shocked and so very grateful at the opportunity to interview for a practicum at W&W.  All of this happened so quickly that it caught me by surprise.  It was just last week that I met with my advisor and decided to start looking for a place to do my practicum.  By the end of the week, I’ll know a decision about this practicum opportunity.  I gratefully welcome prayers in the coming days for this interview.  No matter the outcome, I am thankful for a God who knows what my future holds.  Please join with me today in thanking and praising God for each and every ounce of blessings He gives us.

For I know well the plans that I have in mind for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare, not for woe! Plans to give you a future full of hope. {Jeremiah 29:11}
