"The Deep Freeze" and Other Random Blog Thoughts for Alphabe Thursday and Such

Now we don't have this massive amount of snow Y E T ! But.....the sentiment is perfect. When you live fifteen minutes away from your job and the traffic adds another five minutes to your coming and going routine, it is annoying,  but when you have to crawl home on the ice rink the city calls roads and arrive one hour later, that is unacceptable! Where on God's green earth ( yes, yes, pun is intended) did you miserable drivers live? Fantasyland!? Florida? Southern California? The Bahamas? If you can not drive on the white stuff we call S N O W you should board a bus! You can get to where you need to go without hitting me,  shattering my middle girl's car window and bring the entire city to a standstill! Argh......I dislike bitter cold weather as much as I dislike politicians, let me clarify that, A L L politicians!
 Yesterday I had a job. Today no more. I would think age , not youth would be the closest answer to why I was blind sighted by this. I am finding it difficult to move forward. Zipping by the hours in my day , wondering what is in store for me next. I love this quote, Move forward, today is my gift from God and tomorrow is a surprise. I would like some peace and calm. The past two years had been very difficult, the ten prior were easier All the hard work, my honesty, none of it made a difference. Today someone new takes my place.
So I must move forward. Zip along the road of life and stop only if my journey needs a rest.
I need to repeat this. At my age it is always uncertain how you will perceived. I need to work so we can live. It is difficult not having that stable income any longer, I will ask you to pray and be a prayer warrior for me and for all who need a helping hand from the Lord.
These are powerful words I need to cherish in my heart and use in my daily life. I hope you visit Ms. Jenny and pray for her recovery. She has had the worst year with all these health issues. Yet each week she encourages us to participate in Alphabe Thursday and smile.  I hope you liked my tiny "Y" and "Z" shares today. Participate in Pink Saturday and say hello to a lady who always makes sure pink is sprinkled everywhere in your lives. Thank you Beverly

Off to pick my hubby up at the bus and enjoy a quiet evening with him at home before more snow, more bitter cold temps hold us hostage once more. Please pray and thank you for letting me share with you today.

I am so sorry about your job. This happened to me at age 59 and I was just shocked and scared! I made it and now I'm retired and OK. Not rich by any means money wise but Rich Rich Rich in the things that matter; Love, Family, Friends! Hang in there my friend! You are in my prayers.

I am so very sorry about your job. There is no job that is safe anymore. I will be praying for a new one for you.

So sad to hear that you have no more job. However, retirement can be good too. I finally gave up my job this past summer, and retired. I do miss the paycheck every week, but I manage to get along. I have what is most important - my family and friends, my little dog, and I'm still fairly healthy enough to enjoy each day.

Hang in there. Think positive. Do you have any hobbies that you would like to spend lots more time on now? Books you want to read, movies you want to watch?

That saying is right. All our todays are a gift. God bless my friend, hugs, Edna B.

I hope "the other window" opens soon and you find a job that you enjoy, working with people you can trust and form a rewarding team with.
