Well yesterday my husband and I found out that he may be getting laid off. I don't even know what to think right now. He was off last week because he hurt his back and this week he is off along with a bunch of other guys because there is no work for them. Why does money have to play such a big role in our lives? I know everything that happens to us is a learning experience but I can't see what it is I am supposed to benefit from this situation.

I guess if I just stop and think it will come to me......maybe....lets do some brainstorming..
-we are supposed to learn that money isn't as important as we make it out to be.
-what is important is we have each other and our little man and we are alive and well
-no matter what, things always have a way of working out so learn whatever we can from this situation and go with the flow.
-maybe this is a lesson on how material things do not define who we are.
-I have read plenty of times "sometimes less is more"

Well I feel a bit better now, I will be here waiting for the blessing in disguise.

Oh and my new running shoes are the greatest thing since sliced bread. What a difference!!!



  1. I hope everything works out for you guys. :)

    I am happy to hear that you love your shoes. Getting new running shoes is always so exciting for me too!

  2. Hang in there. I wish I had some pithy comment that would help but I don't. We all have storms we have to weather, that's just how life works. Keep us posted and keep running, it helps to maintain a positive attitude.

  3. Sometimes door are closed just to find that others are opening up.
    Hang in there!
    Love new shoes!
