Her First Day

Beth wore all black today. It's her uniform for her new job! I'm SO excited about this job but I also have reservations.

Her job coach was developing this job for a different client and at the last minute, the client changed her / his mind about it. So last week we got a call asking if Beth would like the job. It's a paid position, just a few hours a day, two days a week. Sounds perfect!!

So we said yes.

Then we learned it's in a city about an hour from our house. And the traffic between here and there is notorious for being stop and go the. whole. way.  Which translates into a 2 hour commute.

But it's a paying job. And at Little Caesars Pizza! Beth has wanted to work at a place that people recognize.

So we still said yes.

Our family drove to it last night after dinner, just to check it out and so Beth would at least recognize it when her bus dropped her off this evening. Oh yea, did I mention she's working evenings? More reservations.

But she's working!! She has a job and she is beyond excited!! (I haven't shared any of our reservations with her. There's no need to worry her if none of our fears come true.) She was ready early today. And she was nervous. I re-assured her that she could do it. That's she going to be great and make friends and do the job well. Then, just before her bus arrived, I prayed for her. I laid hands on her and prayed for peace of mind and for her to have confidence.

Allie came over to play today and she wanted in on the picture too!
Beth was more than happy to oblige.

Waiting for Beth's bus.

It's here! 
"Bye Aunt Beth! Have a good day at work!"

Yay on the job! It's too bad that it isn't closer, but glad that this is working out for her!
