Laid off for the first time ever!

Well I go on an incredible mini vacation and come to work that Wednesday to find out that I am being laid off! First time I have ever been laid off and it was not a good feeling! I felt numb at first and the next day as I started to "unthaw" I suppose, I felt a range of emotions! As a single parent of two young adults both living with me (one in college and the other a single parent), this is definitely a nervous time for me. I am the only one working right now because my daughter recently got laid off from her job. Geez Louise! When it rains it pours! Anyway, I have a few irons in the fire and pray as I know God will open the door he wants me to walk through! I am a strong believer that in all things God works for the good and that he will provide for me and my family!

To all the rest of you (sure that is 97% of us) who have either lost your jobs, had a family member to lose their jobs or are just struggling financially! Hang in there and know that "This Too Shall Pass!"

And hey take a look at my supply shop and my Unique Commodities Shop

yes, I use that phrase a lot to keep myself sane, "This too shall pass." I'm so sorry you were put in this predication. Hopefully, things will get back to some normalcy. Thinking of you... {:-Deb

So sorry to hear about losing your job. Last week was LazyT, now you, unfortunately, I think we will be seeing a lot more of these in our threads over the next few weeks. My daughter called me in tears the other night, one of her co-workers who is in his 50's and has children was laid off. He was also his secret santa, so she gave him his gift as she hugged him goodbye. She felt bad that it had to be someone with a family, she said she would have taken his place. I pray that God will not let so many people suffer during this recession. Is there anything we can do to help you?

Hang in there and keep the faith. God will provide for you needs just keep an eye out on how he's going to do it.
