So Now What??!!

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Greetings To All!!

My, it sure has been a while & I pray that everyone is doing well! Ok, so what's the biz?...

Here goes... I (we) finally finished school & graduated with my Bachelor's in Business Management!!! emoticon

What have you all been up to? Let's chat for a while... I'm sad & my heart hurts, but I really can't tell you why!!

Our company is going through some changes & have made the "corporate" decision to close our location...having said that, Thank God the associates will be transferring to other locations, hopefully close to their geographical location. As for me, I have a strong feeling that I will get a pink slip...why? I'm glad you asked... I have a lot of health concerns & I am very strong in my convictions that unless they are willing to keep my schedule the way it is now, with weekends off for Church functions on Saturday & free on Sunday to attend Church, I don't think that the store manager at the other location is willing to bend... I'm not either. Since Nicolas has gone on to glory, this truly has a different meaning entirely & is a huge part of my life.

So, on to the next phase... I was just recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis & this stuff is no joke. I kept telling my doctor that my ankles hurt terribly bad & it really felt like my bones were put in backwards & coming through!!! Since it is so advanced, they have put me on Methotrexate & folic acid to lend assistance with a sick tummy & hair loss...
I'm okay with that, except that it just hurts, & I want it to stop...

As I sit here thinking about a LOT of stuff, I have it in my spirit that I want to work from home for a while.... this keeps keeping to me & has been for quite some time... is this possibly a sign that change is in order. The last day for the store is November 17, so we'll see what happens....

I wanted to share this with everyone.... this is a little note that I wrote for Nicolas for graduation...

"Nicolas, when we first started this journey, WE were side by side; however, somewhere along the way, God called you on to Glory; thus making it harder to go it alone. Through many tears, & oftentimes feeling that I just couldn’t go on – I looked up toward the Heavens, knowing in my heart that you had been by my side all along. Our journey is now complete!"

In your honor & precious memory!

I love you!

Mother


As I close, I pray that everyone's spirit is calm, & if it isn't seek God first, then perhaps someone to talk you....

Please, please keep in touch & may everyone have a blessed night!!

    Congratulations on getting your degree. Sorry that your company will be closing your location. I am sure that another door will open for you though!

    God Bless You! I am glad you finished school, my heart is heavy for your loss and I am excited for your new chapter in your life. I hate that you have to deal with this physical pain of RA, but hang in there. I know there is support out in our SP world that can give you advise.

    Keep up the prayers and keep in touch!

    Good to hear from you.

    Congratulations on getting your degree!! You worked hard for that!

    I am sorry that your work situation is changing and hope that they will allow you to keep your schedule and stay. If not, I hope you can work from home.

    I have R.A. too and it gets easier to cope with after a while. I have had it since I was 38 and I'm 60 now.

    I'm sure that Nicholas is very proud of you.

    You betcha, Nicholas is still with you in Spirit! I only believe in transitions...not that d....h word.

    Working from home sounds good to me. I was thinking today that I need a job that fulfills and exhilarates me again. Not one that leaves me beyond absolute exhaustion.

    There is an RA team here on SP, though I haven't checked it out...
