Job Losses and the economy
"Many things which cannot be overcome when they are together - yield themselves up when taken little by little." – Plutarch
This quote is for me today. My husband was laid off Tuesday. It's not that I was totally shocked or anything. I know about the economy. It's happened before. Plus I knew his contracts were getting fewer and fewer the last 90 days.
Yet, it's a punch in the gut when you 'add' it to everything else going on - especially paying for a wedding.
However I'm going to choose to 'think in little compartments' - on a day to day basis - looking at the next 24 hours and only the next 24 hours. And for the next 24 hours - I'm okay.
Chatty taking one day at a time . . .
