I got a job!
After months on this long and grueling job search
I have finally found a job I look forward to starting!
I have written so many resumes, cover letters, emails, thank you notes... but this is the one I've enjoyed writing the most!

Dear G-d,

I am pleased to inform You, that I have accepted the job offer You have sent me. I have enjoyed our many conversations and feel that my experience with this job seeking process has made me a stronger, more confident person. As I mentioned a number of times, I firmly believe that I am ready for this next stage in my life and I am grateful for the confidence you have shown me. Obtaining this job was the first step in achieving my goals and I am eternally thankful for the great opportunity You have provided me with. I appreciate that throughout this long, energy draining, heart-wrenching job search You have not given up on me and have given me the strength to hold on. I am especially thankful for the camaraderie and support I have found in others.

I have spent a good deal of time reviewing this process, and I am confident that it was conducted with my best interest in mind. Although there were times when it seemed like it would never be resolved, and times when I had difficulty making sense of it, it has become abundantly clear to me that a clearly defined plan was being followed. My goal now is to apply the lessons I have learned in this situation to future challenges that arise and I look forward to being able to use these newly developed skills in establishing a long-standing relationship with You. In addition to finding me a job which will help me fulfill my material needs, I especially feel appreciative for the kind of job You have found me. I look forward to utilizing the knowledge and experience I have amassed in an intellectually stimulating yet meaningful way. As my resume indicates, I have been trained in various fields but my career goals have always been to utilize these skills and experiences to work in my community and to develop a closer relationship with my Boss through this work. I strongly beleive that this job offers me a perfect opportunity to use my talents to pursue this goal.

Many thanks again for Your interest in me, for Your patience with me, and for all Your assistance. I am confident that this is the next step in the development of a rewarding and successful relationship between us.


p.s. special thanks to:

joe - for the kick in the butt, for setting my head on straight, for your clear headed advice and most importantly for scrubs

eran - for your patience, your confidence in me, and your kind and caring poopiliciousness

and to the millions and billions and gazillions of others who have had to hear me whine, vent, cry, despair and beg for encouragement, who have helped me out and given me good advice, who have been patient with me and my kookiness and mostly who have given me the energy and the confidence not to give up - you have no idea how helpful you've been.

thank you thank you thank you!

and you're right, G-d can deal out as He pleases... but apparently He's chosen to save the big ones for after 120!

mazal tov!

kol haschalos kashos--all beginnings are difficult--but you seem to have begun on the correct foot...its so important to keep that connection with your Source in the ruthless and fake dog-eat-dog world. and important to keep that connection with your blogosphere.

best wishes at the new job.

Mazal Tov on your new job! I hope you LOVE working there and look forward to getting up & going to work every day.
I read in (I believe her name is)Alice Koller's book An Unknown Woman, that most people have 'jobs', but the fortunate few have 'work' - the thing they look forward to doing and accomplishing every day, not just 'a job', but more your soul fulfilment, or even life's 'raison d'etre'. I hope you have found your WORK.

I second what lady-light said, good for you, finally. And on the break up you have to do, good luck with that.

Great letter, He'll enjoy it.

When I was a child ("blah, blah, you still are...blah") my dad would come home from shul every morning and recite the day's Hayom Yom. He'd invariably preface it with "This morning's Hayom Yom answered EVERYTHING I've been thinking of..."
So, "This morning's Anonym00kie spoke RIGHT to my day's issues..."

And as I would tell my dad each morning: "Eh."
