coffee mom

Recently my wife landed a job at Port City Java. Besides the extra income, I am seeing all sorts of benefits to this new job. (1)The free coffee. (2)The free cappucinos. (3)The free lattes. (I don't know if I am spelling any of these things correctly or not...) (4)Being able to have my wife order my coffees for me because I am never really sure what I am ordering until I take the first drink. (5)Finding out what a barista is. (6)More free coffee.

The list of benefits is huge! And I haven't even gotten into the secondary benefits yet. Things like: having more time to do school work at home or being able to watch a Jackie Chan movie on a weekday. There are all sorts of secondary benefits.

But the neatest thing about this job is how she got it. You can read all about it in her post titled, the story of my life. But I still feel the need to make a couple of comments about it myself.

I must say, the way she finds jobs is amazing. I mean, even in this case, she didn't even go down there right away, they called her! That is so typical of how things go in her life. She gets the neatest opportunities and I think that it is because people love her. They really do, people just love her. She has abilities in social situations that would amaze you. She can walk into a room of complete strangers, and within minutes have people feeling at ease and wanting to be her friend for life.

I also want to say that I think that she will be perfect for this job. God has blessed her with the ability to multi-task and administer. She does great in high pressure situations. I fully expect her to be running a business someday. She just has a knack for it.

Her only limitation will be her priorities. I know that she will put me and the boys first. I don't doubt it for a moment. Her #1 priority is her family. She is a mom at heart and nothing is going to change that.

Port City Java may just have to wait for their manager of the year decade.
