Things Are Looking Up For The Garrison Family!

Happy Monday y'all!

I have great news!

While Chris still hasn't been able to find a job, a little over a week ago I got called in for a job interview at Massage Envy, and I got it!
They pretty much hired me on the spot pending my background check and massage practical!

A little background...

I went to massage school in Charleston without an idea that I'd ever live anywhere else.
So when I took my licensing board exam, I took the test to get a license to practice massage in South Carolina.
But when I got married, I moved to Rock Hill which is right on the South Carolina/North Carolina border.
And when I moved here, all the massage positions were in North Carolina.
A lot of good that does a girl with a South Carolina license!

About a month ago I was having lunch with my family, and we noticed that there was a Massage Envy that had just opened up which is a huge franchise so I immediately applied.

And I got the job!

Words cannot express how big this is for my family.
We needed this job to come along.

I've worked four days so far and love it!

I was so busy!
I ended up doing 21 massages!
My body was exhausted at the end of it, but it was so worth it.
Massage therapists get paid great money to begin with, plus if you work in a spa, people tip.
Oh man do people tip.

And if this keeps up, Chris and I should have a better bottom line than when he had his old job.

I guess when you pray, God doesn't always give you what you ask for.
Sometimes He has something better in mind.
Although we're still praying that Chris also finds a good job soon :)

Things are looking up for the Garrison family.
