A Decade Of Working
I would like to thank our Lord for giving me a work that helped sustain and provide the needs of my family for the passed 10 whole years. I'm so glad that I stayed this long, and I know it wouldn't be possible without His guidance. It seems like yesterday when I prayed and asked Him for any work, since I was about to have a child back then and I was needing all the help that I can get. I told Him that I'll take the job even if I start below minimum. But He gave me more than what I asked for.
I started at a decent rate, enough to accommodate the needs of a starting family. Then 6 months after, I got my first increase along with my regularization at work. And then again, I thank the Lord for He touched the hearts of the people around me and everything just fell into place. I got to travel out of town and go to a known resort (our company owns) during our work engagements. With that, I would like to thank my previous office mates and our first department head.
When we had our reorganization due to the major movements and changes in the executives of the company, we also had a new head along with new colleagues. Even though our head was tough to be with back then (LOL), I was promoted during his time. And that wouldn't be possible without the recommendation from our previous team leader (which by the way, is already holding an executive position in the company as an assistant vice president now). I was transferred from pre-audit to do post-audit works, and new staffs were hired. I learned a lot of stuffs and acquired skills due to that experience. Since I was already assisting in audit engagements even when I was still in pre-audit, it was easy for me to adapt to my new assignment. It was really a blessing, just in time, since I had my second born and it really was a great help for my family. My gratitude to everyone who made it possible.
Then years after, another reorganization was made. Again, we had a new head, and a lot of friends and colleagues were either transferred to our affiliates or to other departments. Challenging years, I may say, there were a lot of reassignments and changes made which affected our group. There were just some personalities you can easily get along with and there were the exceptions. I was just glad that our Lord gave me my family where I can always get my strength from especially during those times. More, the Lord was truly good to me, I was transferred again to pre-audit in one of our affiliates where my friends were and where I can work to my full capacity again.
Now, with change being constant with the top management, we had a new department head now and along with newly hired officemates. Though they are all younger than me (am I getting that old already?... Nah!!! hahaha), I got high hopes with these guys. I know they'll do better in our department. Me, well, I just thank the Lord more and more each day. Above the 13th month, leave conversions, bonuses, salary increase and monetary blessings I receive, I thank Him for the good health, peace of mind, friendship, and family.
Thank you for the 10 years, my Lord. To Yours be all the praises and glory, forever and ever...
