I started this blog as a quilting journal with some "snippets" of our life thrown in. I haven't written much about the difficult financial time we've been going through. I'm not sure why...no body's business but our own...many things had to be kept confidential...who wants to read depressing stuff, I know I don't. There were many reasons.
Today we took the final blow. I'm hoping it will all be made public tomorrow. It's so terrible when things happen that are literally no fault of your own. It's very much like being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I've been holding it all in for months now. I've avoided my friends because when they inevitably ask "How are things going?" I have to lie. I can't tell them what's really going on, or how I really feel. How sucky is that? I have this list on my bulletin board in my sewing room...reasons I hate (fill in the name of the company). I started it jokingly in my head, but one day I sat down and wrote out the reasons and posted it. Today I threw it away, because, you know, that's where it belongs. I feel for all the other families who have and will be affected by this. Who needs this kind of stress. I read Country Mouse's blog tonight. She wrote about some wonderful blessings in her life. She reminded me that I have all those things too. I want to thank her for that. Tomorrow is another day. I'm moving on.
