Ajoleblon...A Cajun Tale

This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

Back to reality

Hello Hello Hello  anyone out there?  Calling all angels...

I am now a certified Hospice Volunteer!  Two of the most wonderful intense days and tomorrow I have to go back to the drudgery of that hell hole I work in.  Can you imagine learning how to care for the dying is more desireable to me than where I have to go to work.  Let me tell you I've laughed more in the past two days than I've laughed and enjoyed life at work in the past year.  Tis a joy and sense of peace about dying.  There is hope for me...I put out two resume's Friday and I have two interviews!  I went on one today which is very encouraging.  They want me back for a second interview after they have finished interviewing the rest.  I really don't think I want that position but I will go for the second interview to give them an opportunity to convince me.  LOL  I have one tomorrow with a larger company so for me it is very encouraging to be faced with a job I hate but also know that I have other opportunities!  I want to be very careful to resist taking the first job offered just to get out of my present situation.  What I really would love to do is sell everything I own and go work for Hospice.  Maybe one day a paying position will become available but I would still want to do go into the homes and sit with the patients.  I think I have chosen to be more into the spiritual side of it...pastorial care.  Hospice has soooooooooo many areas that you can volunteer.  I have so much time on my hands I told them to hook me up with everything.  They asked if I wanted to be a speaker for Hospice...oh dear?  Me a speaker?  They do have a training course so who knows?  Anyway...I feel joy joy joy....


How kind is our Sacramental Jesus! He welcomes you at any hour of the day or night. His Love never knows rest. He is always most gentle towards you. When you visit Him, He forgets your sins and speaks only of His joy, His tenderness, and His Love. By the reception He gives to you, one would think He has need of you to make Him happy.

- St. Peter Julian Eymard (1811-1868)
