So I've been working in a grocery store bakery for only about a year and a half. At first I liked it, learning how to decorate cakes, discovering that I have a talent for it, etc. I just loved it when I would hand out a cake order and the person would just gasp when they saw it. I lived for those kind of reactions.

Then we got a little shorthanded at work. But the managers didn't hire anyone else because they figured I could do it. I was getting so strung out! I was having to work as hard and as fast as I could every day! My hands felt like they were going to break everytime I squeezed a bag of icing. I was starting to hate my job, I would feel angry at every person who would call to order a cake because it was just more work! So I starting applying at other places (non bakery jobs) but I never got a call back. My husband and I and the people at the bible study we go to were praying for us for months that I would get a new job.

Then, about a month ago, my boss came up to me and said she heard some talk about another position opening up in the store (I work for a warehouse club). The manager who mentioned the open position also mentioned me right away for the job. I'm thinking, no way! This is good! The job? Comparison shopping. Basically I drive out to our store's competition (target/cub/other warehouse clubs) and check the prices on the items that we also carry. When I'm not doing that I help out with signage, customer service, that kind of stuff. What an answer to prayers!

So now I'm on my third week on the new job and I LOVE IT!!!! Sure, I'm not doing cakes anymore, but now I have time and energy to make some practice cakes at home and to try some things that I wouldn't have had the opportunity to try at work, like fondant/tiered/carved cakes. I love decorating again, and my hands don't hurt anymore!

All I have to say is Praise Jesus, because this was just handed to me by Him!
