3/2/09 - What A Blessing!!
Today was a fantastic day for not only Kayleigh, but for our whole family.
First off, Kayleigh is doing wonderful and she is making great strides in her prognosis. As you can tell from the photos, she is loving her bouncy seat. She spent a few hours playing in it and smiling as you can see her unique smile she placed upon her face. I say it is a mixture between a cute squint and a smile, but whatever it is, it is so unbelievably adorable.
Aimee spent a good time with her today while I was busy with my final interview. Aimee changed her trach all by herself and was successful at doing so. She took her time and made it an enjoyable experience for Kayleigh. There were no issues in the process and Kayleigh was calm as can be. Isn't Kayleigh just a peach with that little dress on. It is such a sight to see.
Also, as you can tell by the snow we got, Allyson and Brandon were ecstatic as they were finally given a chance this year to play in it. The last two times it snowed, it was a joke. It was more ice than snow and by the time they dressed up to go outside, it was gone. So this time, they spent a good hour playing outside with the dogs who seemed to love it more than the they did. I was so happy to see them enjoying themselves and as the snow continues to fall, they are stoked about not going to school tomorrow. Charlotte cancels at the drop of a snow flake and of course these snowflakes were huge this time around.
Speaking of my interview and how that went, it was great! I got the job and I start training tomorrow morning. This is an awesome opportunity for us and I pray that this job will get us to a stable position in our lives where we can focus on what is most important, our family. I will be able to work hard, build the business up and share in our children's lives like a parent should. It has certainly been a blessing to all of us.
As I said I would before, I am going to describe a little about what I am going to be doing. This job is with a Christian company based out of Norman, Oklahoma. The owner, Neil Boyd has been in business for over 25+ years and has created a successful business plan that offers people with great opportunities while glorifying God in the process. The business is called Alliance Maintenance and they are a commercial janitorial company.
My position is going to be an Area Developer for the Charlotte, NC market and I will be bidding on accounts, hiring a janitorial franchisees to clean the accounts and then I manage those accounts. The great thing about this company is they offer their janitorial franchisees a higher paid salary than most companies (up to $20/hr), but they also sell these franchise accounts at no money down and give complete ownership of the account to the franchisee. This will allow the accounts to be serviced with complete perfection because the franchisee takes so much pride in their own franchise. Not to mention, Alliance can possibly save the business accounts a lot of money in this tough economy with the great pricing structures they have put in place.
So needless to say, if you are/or know someone who is looking to make a decent paying position in a recession proof job, with no money down in the Charlotte area, contact me ASAP and we will get you set up. Also, if you are a business manager/owner who needs excellent customer service in your janitorial department and could very well possibly save some money, contact me ASAP and we will set up an appointment to deliver a bid.
Let's all praise our Lord for the love and support you all have given our family. It is thanks to some really great people who have helped me gain this awesome opportunity to work for such an amazing company. I am truly blessed and thankful for everything that has been happening lately. Can you feel my excitement? :)
Don't forget tomorrow (March 3rd) is the big day for the start of the Donation/Giveaway! This event will be going on for three full weeks. It is going to be a fun and exciting time for EVERYONE and there are TONS of GIVEAWAYS!!!
