First off, Happy Memorial Day to all those that have done so much for us... I'm blessed & grateful for your dedication and honor!
And now for my 2nd request... my husband has been out of work (contract) almost 12 weeks now. He is a Software Implementation Specialist. He installs Oracle software. He's worked in Doha, Trinidad, Canada East Coast to West, a lot of American companies, etc. There were many projects ready to go for March and April and then some more in May. Well, all those companies, due to the economy, cancelled their upgrades/implementations.
One of the Pearls of Wisdom of him being home... emptying the storage unit, organizing the garage, going thru boxes, with more still to go thru. If he hadn't been home, it would have been a slow moving process, well, slower than it's been for me now. I've tried to remember back before emptying the storage and going thru boxes, and it seems like forever. I'm making a BIG dent in what's been hanging over my head for years and it feels good. With every load to garbage, donation, recycling, etc., I do a little happy dance. I've had crap sitting, stacked, leaning, and now I have walk ways, putting things together, with more work to do. It seems I keep making more messes, but when I get finished with one area, the work load is getting smaller. We're living in our smallest house... so, we're downsizing, too.
Oh, and when I have my Grandson, bless him... I just don't worry about what's waiting for me, and we play and I enjoy him completely.
So, with all the good things that have come from Rod being home... bills are due, rent, car, etc. and things are getting tight. And, a bit scary. And, I know that their are so many people out there that are needing prayers, blessings, miracles & well-wishes, for their families and friends, too.
I'm only asking that you include me and my husband is your daily blessings, and I will continue to keep praying for all those that I read on SparkPeople, blogs & hear about on the news that are in need of a miracle, too. I can't thank you all enough for your support, love & genuine kindness... and it's for that reason alone, that I'm able to share such a personal & private matter.
You don't get much more personal than explaining a public test-drive on a bathroom scale.
