Happy Anniversary to me

Eight years ago today I was a young naive girl just out of college starting my first real job. I was so excited to make more than $5.50 an hour that I didn't care what the job entailed. I had never heard of Section 8 low income housing and could never have imagined some of the characters that I would soon meet. I was now a property manager and had a business card! I always wanted my very own business cards. I remember calling my parents soon after I began. I thanked them for a house and a yard and most importantly for being married and happy. I had no idea this other world existed.

Eight years later, I am still sitting at the same desk much wiser to the world and the people in it. My job has its good and bad days, but overall I enjoy what I do and I like to think that I am making a difference in lives that are less fortunate than mine.

Here is a picture of my sweet baby that I get to come home to every night. I don't mind visiting the less fortunate world 40 hours a week, but I'm very grateful that I get to go home every night to my house, yard and loving family.
