A co-worker just emailed me to tell me "Happy Anniversary" at my job. I started there 11 years ago today. Imagine that!
Working at Bethany House has been such a blessing for me. Up until then, I had worked in what I consider a wide variety of places: department store, ice cream shop, telephone company, church office - secretary, bakery, meat packing plant, mortgage company, dress shop, and finally a publishing house.
What do I like most? First of all - the people - those I work with, and the authors. I guess that's how God made me. I love connecting with people. I work with truly gifted people. Some are able to search out and acquire talented writers, others have the gift of marketing, and then there are those with the gift of design. I'm so happy to rub shoulders with these amazing people.
Oh, not every day has been sunshine, but out of those 11 years, I have probably had about 3 days in which I would have liked to have walked away. That's a pretty good record.
Tomorrow I'll return and start the 12th year. This is the longest I have worked anywhere. I'm looking forward to tomorrow!
