Rolling over in goodness

Good. 
 Life is just good right now. 
It has been insanely busy, but good. 
I started a new job last Monday. 
In my previous job, I worked for a person who is very well known.
  An expert in his field.  Someone who is respected and revered by all. 
 It was a good move to go to work for him. 
This new position, is an excellent opportunity, too. 
Another good move.
 All part of the journey.

My new job is busy, busy, busy.
  That is how I like it. 
 The day flies by, you look up and all of the sudden think
how can it be time to go home?
In my new job one of the things I do is go to the mail room once a day.
I like going to the mail room.
Even my new boss said "oh good!"
(Different administrative people have different duties,
so my new boss didn't assign the mail room to me.)
But, it gets me out of our suite.
It is in the next building
and down in the basement.
I get to greet others in the halls.
I get to be in the midst of the students as they hustle and bustle between classes.
Some university employees complain about students-
but not me.
I love them.
Heck, I was a student not so long ago and they were wonderful to me.
(Just earned my B.S. in 2007.)
My children were students.
Those students are the reason we are there.
The reason we have jobs and get a pay check.
I get to walk on the bridge hallway
that crosses over the road
to the other building
and see the cars and people, down below.
And, I get to see the free stuff on the shelves outside of the mail room.
I just scored a new, never used rolodex.
I am over-joyed!
Have you ever seen an altered rolodex?
Some people call them altered "rolos." 
This won't be something that I sit down and complete all at once.
But something that will be a work in progress.
Already I'm dreaming of papers with apples listed under A
Or a piece of purple under P
Kisses under K
Oh the fun
part of the journey
just like my life.

I am feeling
blessed
happy
content
hopeful
rested
loved.

Congratulations on the new job. It's good to like the students. If it weren't for them, there wouldn't be a need for the university!!

Best,
Bonnie

Sounds like a great NEW job. It has just the right kind of benefits too. Being able to get out and about is a definite plus. ENJOY the change of scenery and the work. My brother has been working for the university he graduated from for the past 35 years. He LOVES it, like you do. I wish you continued success. Take care.
