Gratitude Post # 27~My Job

This is johnny, my hair dresser. He is wonderful. He and his wife have five children. He is always very uplifting and kind.

This is Robbin, Johnny's assistant. She is as sweet as the come.




This darling young lady is my boss and she is very good at mananging all the loose ends.



If you recall, I am a retired florist/owner of my own shop and flowers are my passion. After selling my flower shop, my best friend, Darlene, and I started a custom floral design business from our homes. We did magnificent weddings, large and small and we decorated homes and businesses for the holidays. Big beautiful homes and small cozy homes. It was a magical time for our business. There was nothing we could not do, except when Darlene's mother was diagnosed with Lou Gearing's disease. Due to her mother illness and death, we put our business on hold.

Well last year I moved and you can remember how sad and lonely I was way back then. Our Realtor had told me to get my hair cut at this adorable one-hundred year old home that also had a gift and garden shop, two hair dressers and tanning beds.

I show up for my hair appointment and while I am waiting I start looking around in the gift shop. I find this beautiful young lady working ever so hard on processing fresh flowers. You know that I never meet a stranger and while talking I offer to help her with the flowers. Courtney, the young lady, ask me if I was a designer? I said "Yes, I had been one for many years, but that I had retired." Little did I know that she would ask me to work for her. Mmmm... a job? I hadn't even thought about working anymore. But I am intrigued.

I talked it over with my Hubs and he was delighted and thought I should accept the job. So that is how I came to work in this little town. I remember telling Courtney that "They really needed me." What I came to find out is that it was mutual and that I needed them too.

What makes my job so much pleasure is the people that I work with and am surrounded by. I know most of you will understand...it was a God thing. I work among the most awesome believers and they lift my spirit up. I hope that I do the same for them.

So this is my blessing of how I came to work for this beautiful faithful family. They have six children and the mom home schools the youngest three. The older children were their first family. They then adopted three precious children all unique and different. I have never met such self-less folks. Their 22 year old daughter runs the shop. She is a joy to work with and I am thankful to be a part of it all.

it's sometimes hard to be the non-family member in a family run business. So it's nice that these folks have embraced you into the business, because it is much like an extention of family.

How wonderful. I learned more about you today. That's nice too. You are indeed very fortunate. The best part...you know it.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

I'm so enjoying these posts. You are just encompassing so many things. And what I liked the best is you said that they shop need you as much as you need it. It's great to work with good people :) Aloha :)
