It has Finally Happened....

I have received an "exempt" position!!!!!!! Thank you for all who have been praying for me and my job!!! YES YES YES!!! I can now start my Career on the railroad! My official title: Mechanical Foreman I, Locomotives. Yes, I know a little strange for someone who went to school for Culinary Arts. It just goes to show, that we can plan and plan, but we never truly know how it will turn out! I did work hard for this to happen and I had to learn a ton of "STUFF", but the most opportunity came from the favor that was shown to me. The way I was trained and continued to train and receive opportunity, how amazing is that? It is so true, that if God wasn't working for me this would have never ever happened! My family is thankful for the upward movement also, they have listened to me pray, talk, complain, hope, pray, wishful think and ask for prayer over this initial position! Now you know, it doesn't end here! As soon as I received the offer I immediatley started to think "ok what next"! I need to enjoy this moment! Ok enjoying enjoying enjoying!!! Next position, I think I want to go into operations so that I can learn that end of the railroad and have more opportunity to move up!!!

So again, Thank you all so much for prayers and support!
