First Day on the New Job Report!
Monday, July 11, 2011
Hello All My SP Friends:
Today was the most amazing day!
I just Knew it! I love my clients and I love my new job!
I have to drive ONE HOUR to get from home to my first client and that is going to kill on the gas bill BUT it is only about 1 or 2 miles between client 1 and client 2. The company I work for pays milage but only between clients and not from home to the client or from the client to home. I understand why and that makes sence but unfortunately for me that is a long way.
Other than the gas issue, my job is absolutely amazing! I love it! I get to drive in between which is great for me because I HATE to be stuck indoors for 8 plus hours in the same building. I used to drive school bus and loved that job for the same reason because I was out and about not just sitting in a cubicle or at a desk staring at the same four walls all day.
The clients and their caregiver family members are so awesome! Today we just sat and visited and asked each other questions and took the time to get to know each other. When I left the first client, his wife gave me a hug. She said she likes me already.
The second client is the sweetest lady of 73. She does not look 73 at all; she looks much younger. She works hard at whatever activity you are doing with her and she is so pleasant. She is always smiling. She has physical exercises that she has to do and I will tell you what; I was gettin' tired trying to do them with her. She was telling me hang in there...keep going....you're doing good...LOL...Her caregiver, daughter, laughed and said she had a hard time doing them with her too. I think it is a great program. It helps the elderly people to maintain range of motion and balance as long as possible and helps them to work all their muscle groups but very gently.
I was so glad to see the exercise routine.
My day was a day of meeting some amazing people. Learning about their lives and listening to their cares and concerns. Helping others is a humongus stress reducer. I must be one of the luckiest people in the world to have a job that feels like I am getting paid to have fun. I can't wait to see how this job progresses and I can't wait to learn more about these people.
Thank you ALL for your prayers! God listened and he answered with a very Positive answer!
Praise God, So Far, I love My New Job!
