New training... I started training at another facility today. I would call it a promotion. I am making the same money and have the same title. Now I am learning allllllllllllllllllllll about locomotives and freight. I have been trained mostly on Suburban Service (commuter trains) and cars (the coaches) and now I get to learn both about Locos and freight service. I have a lot of training to do in the next month, to make myself more marketable for the "exempt" position I so desire and know I have been promised!! I have already learned a ton from the gentleman who is training me, he is very knowledgeable and a teacher (in my opinion). I am so excited for this training I am receiving and know that it is not something that "normally" happens. I know someone even higher than our company ordered it, Thank GOD!!
I cannot even explain the way I feel, the opportunity given to me, it is unimaginable!! Let me tell you, I have been pretty much a SAHM for more than 11 years. I got to raise my own children until time for them to go to school. I could not have orchestrated this for myself. I actually started looking for a job about 1 1/2 years earlier than when one finally came through. I guess that was to early, I never got discouraged, even when I had an interview and didn't get the job with the company I am with now (it was too soon). It is so nice to rest in peace and understanding, isn't it? I started out at a position, just to get my foot in the door and the possibilities and opportunities have been endless. I am a little held back by the fact that I want to stay in my area for a time, but it hasn't held me back from my Promises!!
I guess tonight I am just in AWE of how God has worked things out and how they continue to work out for my family. I don't think I am getting my emotions or my amazement across just right. Have you ever felt like that!? Is it a great feeling or is it sometimes a feeling of frustration until you see it work through?
