Small moments that influence life in BIG ways

I occasionally have moments when I reflect back on my life and think of the big things I've accomplished or experienced. Usually they can be traced to a specific moment or person that was pivotal to making that important event happen. This also is a testament to me that there is a bigger hand in it all, and our lives are orchestrated to intertwine with one another in order for us to become better and accomplish great things.

My friend and co-worker is moving across the country tomorrow. It is sad, but I'm excited for her and her hubs on their new adventure and chapter in life. Erika worked with me at the BYU Student Health Center back in 2007/2008. I worked there as a full time employee, she was a student employee and left when she graduated Dec 2008.

Our paths crossed again in June 2009 at a movie theater. I stopped her and we chatted about her new job and at the time I was ready to start looking for something new. She loved her new job, and she said she could try to hook me up since they were hiring. My life would be very different today if I hadn't talked to her that night in the theater. A few weeks after that I was hired at the Radiology Billing office I work at now.

For me, it is a big blessing to have a part time job that is extremely flexible and meets my needs as a mom of two. I like the experience,  responsibilities I have at work and the awesome co-workers I get to have adult interaction with. The kiddos go to an awesome lady who love them and she is so great with kids. I trust her completely and that makes it easier to be away from S & L for that short time.
That change of workplace, co-workers, opportunities have been a huge blessing in my life. If it weren't for Erika, life as I know it would be a lot different today! I'm glad she is coming back to visit at Christmas, I know we'll see each other again. Good luck in South Carolina and your big new adventures Erika!
