Wow! I thought Saturday was a rough day. . .
We have fallen victim to the economic crisis.
Shaun, along with 50 % of his office, was laid off today.
Things are pretty crazy right now, to say the least.
My baby is due in less than 8 weeks, and I am having to worry about insurance and making sure that no time lapses between different insurance coverages and trying to find something that my current doc takes. Who wants to worry about that this far along in their pregnancy? Or anytime in their pregnancy for that matter.
How are we going to find another job with similar pay when all other companies are laying off employees too?
I think the hardest thing for me is that I am always the one who is a support to my family and friends. Who is able to lend a helping hand during tough situations, who is there to cry with when something comes up. But now, I am in the exact opposite role. I am the one struggling, and it's hard to know even where to start.
Well, let me tell you that I am so thankful to KNOW that Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us and that He will lead us in the right direction if we continue to live our lives worthy of His intervention.
I am thankful for my hard working husband who couldn't have done anything different to avoid this situation. I am thankful for his faith and determination.
I am thankful for Maisey and for how concerned she is when she sees her mommy cry. For the pure joy that she brings into our lives. (We had an FHE Monday night about being reverent and now every once in a while she will randomly fold her hands and say "reverent." How can that not make you smile, even in the most difficult situations?)
Thanks for listening to me blab! My thoughts are so disconnected right now.
