Dealing with a Chronic Ilness - Consider Working From Home

When I was informed by my doctors, 5 years ago, that I wouldn't be able to return to my customer service postion, after a work related injury, I figured I would never work again. My husband was the one that encouraged me to search for a work-at-home customer service position. With my customer service and sales background, in call centers, I had no shortage of company responses. And I actually accepted a position within 3 days of submitting my resume.

I had been working as an Independent Virtual Customer Service Rep, for 4 years. And I loved it. I had the flexibility of my schedule, received a paycheck bi-weekly via direct deposit, spoke with people throughout the US and Canada and still was able to address my chronic pain and parital disablity.

Menu Plan Monday - March 24

Easter Sunday was definitely a blast this year! I watched Joyce Meyer and Joel Olsteen, on TBN. Isn't it interesting how you'll find something relavent to your life, right then? I prayed through out the day, to thank the Lord for our many blessings and for his love. I love having him in my life!

We attended evening church services and were truly moved. There was plenty of singing and sharing the Word. I have to say this was the best service I've attended. I'm still feeling the affects this morning.

For lunch, we went to Landry's Seafood House. Charles and Marcus started with the Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail. There's no skimping here. Charles took pity on me and shared his.
