SAY HELLO TO....

The NEWEST librarian at The Ohio State University!!!!!!!!

I am so pleased and honored to let y'all know that the Diversity Resident position that I applied, interviewed, waited and prayed for was officially offered to me today. It is a wonderful opportunity that I have known about and waited 3 years to apply for. This is my proverbial "foot in the door" and I will enjoy every minute of it. I was informed that if permanent positions become available during my 2-year appointment, I am welcome to apply and interview for them. I do look forward to one day enjoying a full-time, permanent tenure-track position with the University. Right now though, I am just incredibly humbled and thankful for this opportunity. Each of your prayers, good thoughts and positive vibes has sustained me through this process, which for the last 3 weeks has been nothing but waiting. Those of you who know me know that I am not the world's most patient person, but I
know that waiting on the Lord results in abundant blessings.

I am told I may start as soon as April 11, which is 2 weeks from Monday. Seems like there is an awful lot going on all at once, but I think I thrive on being busy. I don't have time to be bored, that's for sure!

Now...I'm going home to take a celebratory NAP!
