...another one opens!
These past couple days have been really trying. Yesterday my DH lost his job. A job he really enjoyed for the past 6 years.
We have been scrambling to plan for the short-term with what meager savings and the minimal income I make at my p/t administrative job. We're re-doing our family budget and I'm investigating our health insurance options. It if weren't for our deep faith, I can't even imagine were we would be right now.
So, once again I'm taking on the role of "rock" in the family, holding things together. You see, this is the 3rd time in 10 short years my DH has been on the receiving end of such a life-changing event. Companies close or relocate leaving behind capable workers with little or no compassion. It's a blow to ones ego, especially as chief bread winner in our family. I see him aching for answers where there are none. But we have faith and pray for better things to come.
We cannot wait for things to fall into our laps. We must persevere! Work to find that next open door! Yes, through the years I've learned I am quite capable and can carry the weight if I must!
