Laying in my bed with a broken hip for the past three months has given me a lot of time to contemplate my life purpose and whether I had been living up to my "contract".  In 2009, I lost my well paying position as an assistant manager for a large retail drugstore chain when it was sold to a larger national drug chain.

     I loved my job of eighteen years but two years prior to the sell, everything became extremely unpredictable as it was obvious that something was "in the works". Finally the news arrived that our company had been sold.We were promised that our positions and pay would remain intact so everyone was excited for the new exciting changes to come.

     Unfortunately, the "promises" made to all of the "LONG"(s) time employees were all just empty!  Slowly, one by one, the loyal, long time employees were picked off.  Employees that had never had any issues with correctional "write ups" in their long careers, were suddenly being "written up" for the tiniest infractions and then relieved of their duties. We're talking about employees with fifteen to thirty plus years of dedicated service, being relieved of their duties for typing too slow, taking too much time to organize, and spending too much time with customers! The company's motives were painfully obvious.

     I am still in shock about the circumstances leading to my dismissal. I was terminated from my position because I DID WHAT MY STORE MANAGER TOLD ME TO DO! Yep! That's right!  It turns out that she instructed me to do something that was illegal.  Being aware of this detail, I had one of my department managers report this to the corporate headquarters for me. Since I feared this woman and had many reasons to believe that if she found out I had been the one to report her, I would be fired and she would remain unscathed!  Ultimately, I was terminated for following her orders because I "should have known better" and I personally should have been the one to report her. In other words.... I made too much money for this new company and they had just been given the perfect excuse to get rid of another high paid "LONG(s)" time employee!

     This is when I realized that God had other plans for my life. After all, who gets fired for obeying the boss's orders?  I was suddenly aware of "invisible" forces that were helping me through those tough times. I wasn't too upset about losing my job because in my heart I knew that it was meant to be.  I was supposed to do something bigger and better but I was too fearful to follow my heart's desire, so God took care of it for me! Today I own my own gift shop called "Violette Wings & Giftey Things".  I will share the many "coincidences" that brought this dream to fruition in future blogs. I'll just let you know they include not only God and Jesus but Angels and Fairies too!

     While laying in my bed for the past three months, I found myself questioning my purpose in life again. I had been feeling that I needed to be doing something else also. I had always enjoyed writing. In fact, many years ago I began writing poems that I had hoped to have published someday. I don't know what ever happened to them but that urge to write began to surface again. But I had no idea how or even where to begin.

     Well, low and behold, I was receiving a Fairy Oracle Card Reading this evening and what message did the fairies send to me? "Move Forward Fearlessly"! So that's what I did. In a matter of ten minutes, I had found a site to start a blog and now here I am!

     I am so excited that now I can share all of my experiences and even photos of the wonderful "agents" of God that have lead me to this new and exciting future! May  God and His Angels bless you all until next time!
