I'm a single black mother that is raising a wonderful lil boy!!!
Well I went to church today and it's a good thing I went and spoke. I was feeling a lil blue yesterday and they made me feel a whole lot better.
The pastor had told us on Wednesday that a guy who works for Will County would be there to give some black folks jobs. He told us that he was the only black man who worked in the county and was trying to recruit more of his people. So I was all set to go with my resume. Church started and the pastor announced that he didn't know where the guy was. So I was a lil hurt. But after service was over, I went to the pastor and asked where this guy was. He stated he had no clue and that he would be talking to him some time this week. So he was like give me your number and when I contact him, I'll give you a call. I was like would you like to take my resume too because my phone number is on there. And he's like sure. So I hand him my resume and he's like, you have a very nice resume and noticed that I do accounting. He's like man if I would of known you a few months ago, I could've gotten you where I work. I'm like oh yeah. He's like yeah. Well he was so impressed by my resume that he told me, would you mind if I run this by my boss? I'm like sure, why not. I asked him where he worked and he's like in Harvey at a steel factory or something (don't really remember). He was like if you do accounting you could be making a hek of alot of money. So instantly I got excited!!!! I thanked the pastor and left.
Got on the phone to call my grandma to tell her that I'm coming to get my son and my neice answers the phone. She sounded like she was mad. So I'm like what's wrong with you. She's like my stomach hurts and I'm like why does your stomach hurt and she's like I got my period.
OMG!!! My baby is becoming a woman!!!! I was so happy for her. She has been so freaking moody lately, we knew it was coming. So I got off the phone with her and called my sis. I told my sis how come noone told me, she was like I just found out myself. And plus my neice told her not to tell me cuz she knew I'd cry (I got teary eyed...that's not the same is it?).
So any way I'm still on this high from church and I tell my sis about what the pastor told me and she's like, Harvey...why you wanna work that far? Man what a motivator she is. So I'm like Harvey is not far, all I have to do is jump on I-80 and I'll be there in like 20 minutes. Plus my new babysitter is so reliable, so now I can make the drive. My mom was happy for me even my babysitter was supportive. Sometimes I don't get my sista. UGGGHH!! Could it be that she is jealous??? I don't know. But anyway, I hope something goes through. I'm so tired of my job. I can never be noone as long as I'm where I'm at. I have too much talent than to be making copies and being somone's gopher.
So I hope my reader's keep me in their prayers. I really need a change!!!!
