Well isn’t God funny sometimes!?  I was sure 100% last week that my time at my job was ending.  That it was time to make a change and I made a move, but nothing has happened.  In fact I prayed, Lord if this is not where you want me to be (the new job I applied for) close that door and make me know that I am supposed to stay.  Boy, Oh Boy, did He answer that prayer for me!

I had the most amazing weekend.  My mental health Friday was exactly what I needed.  Three whole days off of work and a beautiful sunny Oregon weekend ahead of me, it was wonderful!  We got out into the yard, got wet in our creek, played with the dogs and the next door neighbor kids.  I even got a sunburn!  Which I’m quite grateful for actually, it’s been nothing but rain here for months so I’m excited to have red shoulders.

Next thing I know it’s Monday again.  I didn’t give myself enough time to make juice this morning so I figured I’d do that for dinner.  Another beautiful day, it was easy to get on the road and open the sunroof.  I got to work and had some Teeccino in tow.  Teeccino is a coffee alternative, I gave up coffee about a month ago.  My boss walked in and gave me a face, “that looks like you scraped it up off the parking lot.”  I half laughed, was that suppose to be a joke or was he serious?  Later he told the medical assistant the same thing, she replied to him “it’s probably juice, Corri’s been juicing.”  I missed a very interesting Friday, apparently one of our patients (that the doctor knows personally) had begun juicing and had lost 20lb.

Sitting in my office the medical assistant beeps my phone and says “can you come back here please.”  Awesome, called to the “principal’s” office on Monday.  I get back and she and the doc are staring… “uh… what’s up?”  I ask.  “What kind of juicer do you have?”  My boss asked, “A Hurom slow juicer, why?” I respond.  Turns out he’s looking into buying a juicer for the office.  The Medical Assistant told him how much she wanted to start, then the patient on Friday and now he learns Hubby and I have been at it for a month, it was the perfect “storm.”  My boss is great in the fact that he wants us all to be healthy, he gives us extra time during the day (paid I might add) to go for a jog or a walk or to a gym to workout.  He’s an Orthopedic doc so he’s into fitness.  Anyway, he saw it as a way to help us, add some health to our lives and I’m sure it’s a tax write off too.  He asked me to go with him to Sur La Table at lunch to look with him.

Come lunch time, we head over.  I tell him about Hubby and my journey, he tells me about the patient who lost 20lb.  We get to the store and the only juicer there is the Hurom.  I tell him all about it, how it works even the sales person came up and asked me if I had a job! LOL  I guess I was doing a good job selling the product. 😉  When you love something, you love it, I guess it showed.  He bought it for the office!!  I am giddy!  I ran to the store picked up some produce and came back and made everyone juice.  Now I don’t have to stress myself out if I didn’t make juice for the day before heading home!

I never did hear from that job I applied for.  Then my boss bought a juicer for us… I heard the answer to my prayer loud and clear.
