Earlier this year my husband was laid off due to the economy...About two months later he secured a lower paying, but much closer to home job....now he has been laid off again due to the economy and lack of sales! I have stayed in my job because it is stable and very close to home, although it doesn't pay as well as the job I had before this one - which was the one that I left two weeks before my company was sold to a Canadian entity that terminated the entire Florida workforce...
Anyhow...we are keeping our fingers crossed for another opportunity to materialize. There is a local businessman who my husband had worked for previously who may have an opening...Again, it's about $8.00 less an hour than my husband used to make (back in 2009 before the bottom really fell out of the economy) but again, it is very close to home.
My first thoughts were panicky - we almost lost our house two years ago and have only recently begun to get back on our feet financially...
But I will deal with whatever comes with grace and dignity & NOT STRESS OUT over it. I will continue my healthy eating and exercise (best cure for stress anyway!) and I will remain calm...because God is in control and I have never been homeless (many have been), and I have never been hungry (and again, many have), so we will be fine.
I appreciate any and all prayers for the job opportunity to come through though!
Thanks in advance:)
