Changes On The Job

Every job has some changes that happen over time. You get hired, train and after a while forces outside your control (like COVID) means you must adapt and adjust. This is something I am experiencing as my work tasks include changing how I do customer service and recruitment.

I still enjoy what I do because of how important the mission of my organization is to the lives of thousands. I am just saying that every day has the potential to be completely brand new in how one is supposed to do their daily work.

Covid has changed the game for so many and we have a responsibility to learn new ways of living, working, and doing the best we can. This is where experience can pay off for both employee and employer.

Rolling with the punches is the rule of the times we live in. Every day is a new adventure. Be ready and do what you can.

Reflections On A Friends Funeral

Pardon me if this particular Saturday seems a little somber there is also some hope and perhaps some inspiration here.

At my friend’s funeral today, she was remembered fondly by her granddaughter and the minister for all the things in the gift that is life. It’s that memory that hopefully can give comfort and perhaps inspire us all to emulate the good things about that person.

Frances, who passed away on Wednesday was like an aunt to me. My grandmother and Frances were friends who did stuff like shopping together and enjoying fellowship in their church.

The big takeaway is that how much she did for others as a banker and worker in the church and with a local charity. In my life, I have tried to do things for others and think about serving where I could. After the funeral sermon today I feel like I have done good and I am doing good. Doing things that need doing are good things for all of us to do. I hope to honor those who have influenced me to do good by doing my best. Its all anyone can do in this life.
