Today I was actually working on atotally non-related post when my husband called and delivered some very unexpected bad news. His manager called a few minutes before and told him that his position will be dissolved. Within a couple of weeks my Hubby and our sole provider will be unemployed...
I'm not sure if the word "shocked" can explain how I feel right now...I feel like I'm losing the earth under my feet. I'm not sure what we are going to do and what the future holds.
We will have to make a lot of changes, eliminate all unneeded expenses and to learn to be even more frugal than we are right now. We will keep working on some of the projects we've already started here, just because we planned them and already have all the materials needed. But all the future plans will have to be put on hold.
I have to be honest, I DON'T feel bad. I'm a lot more calm than I would
expect from myself. We have enough to survive for a few months but
mostly I trust the Lord, that He knows our needs, and will help us
through this trial too. It is a little scary but we've been blessed in so many ways over the years that I don't have any doubts that He cares. Unemployment will just be one more lesson that we need to learn.
Definitely not the post I was planning for today :) But hey, we are far from what people in Oklahoma are going through right now...Still, your prayers will be greatly appreciated...
