Yes its me...Im still alive!!!

As you know from my last post, our life took a wee bit of a turn, last week the place where Josh works did some down sizing and he was one of them that was let go....it came as a complete shock to us and now that its been a week we've learned to deal with it a little better. We have our moments but for the most part we are learning to just deal with what is put in front of us for now and believe that everything will work out for the best in the end. Lucky for us Josh does qualify for unemployment so that will help some. For now he's job hunting, has been helping me deal with our online store which business there has kicked up (thank goodness) and helping me to start a second store dealing with USED items, plus he's been tackling some items on the "honey-do" list!!! I also helped my son Devin start up a store. He's only 11 but he is always asking what he can do for money. Then with us starting our online store he wanted one too. So hes making handmade buttons, key chains, mirrors and more and we created an online store for him to sell these items on so go check them out they would make a great stocking stuffer!!! So that's whats been happening here!!


My thought for Thursday is:

"God doesn't give you the people you want, he gives you the people you NEED. To help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you and to make you into the person you were meant to be."



and my music for Monday is:




Always remember to never let the weight of the world bring you down!!

I am so glad you are working things out. You just needed to step back and take a look. I was missing your monday music. I like the choice. Nothing like a little ELO to get you going.
Welcome back

Keep on keeping on. Keep that positive outlook. It will all work out for the good. And very cool that your son is doing his own thing.

Dena, AMEN to that thought, about not letting the weight of the world get you down. If we let it, it will, so we have to rise above all the things that life dishes out to us. Not always easy, but i have found that since I have been blogging I am better able to cope. All the support one finds here is good for the heart and soul. Chin up, keep smiling, stay positive, and life will work out as it should work out, sometimes taking a funny twist or turn that we did not expect!! hugs, Debby

I have been thinking about you all week wondering how things were going. I am so glad that you have such a positive outlook...one that is needed in today's economic world. Out of trial and tribulation, you will be stronger for everything that is happening. Doesn't help that much now, but it will lead to something better...I just know it will!
Hugs to you and your whole family,
Alicia
