The job search

Sweetie knows now.

She took the news of the impending job loss with courage and strength. She has reminded me daily that She loves me and She thinks a great injustice has been done.

I am trying to maintain a good attitude here. To work as hard as I can up until the day I leave. What point in being childish and sour, to justify the decision that the boss has made?

I have two interviews set up early next week. They sound promising.

I have always tried to be a grateful person. We've never had great luxuries but I can eat beans and rice for dinner and be happy for it. I can go months without buying anything new, just paying our bills. I'm grateful that my parents raised me that way. Now, more than ever, I will be grateful for whatever job I can find.

I just came round, catching up on my blog reading and only just read your last few posts.

Oh,man. I am so sorry. I went through something like this last year and for me my faith in God's goodness was a great help. I hope and pray that you will have peace in your heart and that your job search will be fruitful.

It is an anxious time.

It is not just a job .... it is the job.... and during a time when the economy and the unemployment situation is so severe

However, you are not just anyone - you are ECD - and a wonderful and dedicated man, spouse, worker and that light within you will shine forth for all to see. It is a part of you. It is on your resume.

You are all so kind.

Thank you for your support.

I have an interview this afternoon. Maybe one next week but it is starting to look iffy. And a lot of phone calls and online submissions that have not yet responded.
