2009 - Another Job-loss and a MoveOriginally posted on momwithahook.blogspot.com 2/16/2009
Life is a funny little journey we get to travel on our way to Heaven. With much thought and turmoil (my ulcer is hurting again) we've decided to let go of the apartment with the coming Tax return and leave on good terms. I hate to do this and hate to move in with my parents especially now that I am going back with a husband and 2 children but for now it seems that, that is where our journey is leading us.
Instead of wading in a pit of depression I will be seeing this as a chance to spend much needed time on the relationship with my father - my sons' grandfather and appreciate the moments we have left. (not too long ago he was almost gone - heart attack, diabetic coma) We will have to adjust but so will they. (my parents)
I will no longer have everything within my reach. We've had to downsize considerably as there is just no room for much in a home that is already occupied. Storage is out of the question because why would we spend the last of our money keeping stuff we can't even use? STUFF! I hate it and love it at the same time. I'm so much better now that I married the King of Minimalism but I soooo have a long way to go.
Computer access will be very limited in the near future - like at the end of this month it will be GONE. Although there is access in the home we will be staying at, I really don't want to overstep and clash with the occupants. (my parents :) T.V.'s in every room will make it very hard for me to monitor viewing for my youngest. My oldest does what he pleases anyway so I've let him go for now as long as it doesn't harm anyone - especially his kid brother.
Crocheting is something I do to relax so we'll see how much I will actually accomplish in our new situation. T. is still out of work like so many other people in the states. I really don't have faith in the new stimulus package as I don't think it will help people as low as we are (income wise). He (my husband) just needs someone to hire him!
Come on? Mc Donalds, Walmart, Burger King, Grocery Store's, Janitor, anything? Won't anyone take a chance and hire someone who is willing to work for minimum wage? Are these 'Big' Businesses that hard strapped for cash? I doubt if their billion dollars budgets will even see the $1200 that would go to just one full-time employee.... Okay, that was negative. Sorry.
God has not forgotten YOU. He is a very PRESENT help in time of need and I do really see him working in our lives at this very moment. I see the whole world gathering together, getting ready for the great big triumphant return of our King Jesus Christ. Yes, I said it, I believe in Jesus and I believe he is returning. If you are offended please just leave knowing that I only wish you peace and love. There really isn't anything offensive in that is there? ((hugs))
