Hashgacha Pratit

Hashem has plans for all of us, he's always taking care of us and running things. At times it's really hard to truly internalize that we're not in charge, Hashem is.

I just had a wonderful example of it. A little over a year ago I heard of a job in Shilo and I jumped at the opportunity to work near home, 10 minute commute instead of 2 hours. I applied and got the job. And being near home and in this job was good in many ways; My daughters each gave birth this year and I was near and easily able to be with them, I got to know different people in Shilo outside of my usual circle, and I enjoyed working with many of my coworkers. But it wasn't the ideal job, to put it mildly, for various reasons.                          
Among other things, the salary was ridiculously low and the job often extremely stressful. Just when I was reaching the point of deciding it was time to start looking for something else, I got a call from a job agency asking if I was looking, so I asked for details, went for an interview, and have just started working in a great non-profit organization, better salary for less hours, working for a very interesting and inspiring man.

And the kicker is the job agency that called me was calling on the basis of a CV I'd sent them 4 years ago.  They called out of the blue with a job that seems great for me in an organization whose goals I can identify with and am glad to be working for.

Thank you Hashem.
