As a general rule I tend to be a half empty glass kind of girl. I've spent a good few years of my life trying to change that. With that in mind, I've realized that this has been a good week. A darn good week. We didn't win the lottery or anything spectacular (well, I haven't checked my Super Seven numbers yet) but a number of good things have happened.
Sean got accepted into a management training program at work, which will help him add to his innumerable talents. He's such an awesome chef and this will help him round out his management expertise.
I got the final part of my promotion at work finalized (the unexpected raise part) and passed the probationary period. I also have my layout in Canadian Scrapbooker out in stores now(which was probably my most labour intensive layout ever and one of my favourites) and the acceptance into the aforementioned design team.
For me, as a former stay at home mom and before that, small business owner I'm not used to much praise (come to think of it there's striking similarities to both vocations). So the best part of the week was when my boss looked me in the eye and thanked me for doing such a good job.
One year ago I couldn't have imagined myself not just working in my chosen field, but doing well.
I'm thankful, more than I can say.
