I know with all my heart it will return, but in these stressful times At times I feel absolutely helpless. I pray...it seems non-stop...but nothing happens. My heart is seized right now with the stress of trying to sell the store. It hurts to feel like this. I know everyone has times like this and I also know this is a short lived feeling. The good Lord has promised us the store would sell and I have faith in that. Please don't feel sorry for me or offer sympathy...I will be fine. I, being the eternal optimist will change my mood as soon as I can find a cheerful song on my ipod. It is truly a scary time for all across the US. Belts are being tightened and to be honest I think it is a good thing for the greed to stop in this country and simplicity to rule the day. Where are our gardens? Where is family prayer? Where is family scripture study. I know we ignored all of those things before the economy took a dive. Has anyone else simplified their lives or are things business as usual? I am curious.
I'll let you know a secret...I am looking forward to finding a new job. I'm looking to learn something totally different. I don't mind craziness. I don't mind demanding. I don't mind a night shift. I can hardly wait to learn a new trade. I have such a variety of jobs in my past that it will be fun to find..."just another crazy job" to add to my list.
