For months my middle daughter has been waiting to hear where her next job assignment will be. She’s in an administrative training program with a large corporation that puts her into a different job category every 12-18 months, with the final phase being to earn her MBA.
Since June 2008 she’s been traveling to various department stores to monitor displays. Her next position will be managing a brand store. We’ve been hoping she’d get her first choice: Portland area. This morning she found out it’s not to be. No word as yet on where she will be going, but as a mom, I’d been looking forward to the possibility of having at least four of my five girls in the same time zone!
So the question is, how do we stay on track when we encounter the major disappointments in life? Not necessarily the “I broke my nail” stuff, although enough of those in quick succession can build into a major meltdown as well.
First I’ll get on my knees and ask for some comfort. And, I’m not much on crying, but that option’s looking pretty inviting. Other suggestions?
