So, last week on my facebook account I put the following, "Life is interesting. Sometimes when you think the doors are opening and the nice comfortable breeze will be coming soon and you are really prepared for that the breeze comes up and SLAMS the doors shut. That is how I feel today, but I am sure there will be another day when a door or a small crack of a window will start to open."
I was starting to feel like life was piecing together. We were going to lose unemployment completely, but the company my husband worked for had hired me to do some writing for them. My thought was when one door closes another door opens. I was thinking that things would move forward with my husband's job and now I would start working and life would start to smooth out after almost 10 months of unemployment and then part time job. I had figured I would start last week. My nerves were starting to calm a little bit.
Then. . .
On Tuesday I was very focused on what I needed to get done while all of my children were at school. I pulled in the driveway, came in and sat down at the kitchen table and started working on the laptop. About 20 minutes later I hear footsteps and a chair move upstairs. Scared the daylights out of me! I grabbed my cell phone and house phone and for some reason went out the front door instead of the back door (that was only a couple of steps away from where I was). I was thinking, "Oh my gosh, I am being robbed. There is a stranger in my house." As I was about to dial 911 I looked up and realized that our car was home. Then I realized that Rick was home. I had to laugh at myself that I didn't notice the car in the driveway. I came back in and yelled upstairs for Rick and asked him what he was doing. He said, "Packaging ebay, because I have nothing else to do." Oh my goodness, you guessed it, he was laid off. He was the new boy on the block and they had to do alot of layoffs. The confidence that I had that we had finally gotten an in at a company was gone.
What was even crazier was that I stayed calm and told him that things would work out and that this was another stepping stone for us. Look at all of the possibilities and we would be fine. I actually believed that and had confidence that we would be blessed.
So, here we are. I am finally getting my husband to help me build out my website that I have envisioned for 2 1/2 years. It's kindof like the contractor's house is the last one built.
On Friday night, I started to have my light of hope dwindle a little bit. The weekend was rough, but here we are on Monday with my checklist in hand and many things to do.
I am reminding myself to DO MY BEST TODAY and the Lord will take care of the rest. That is what I am doing.
