What a difference a week makes. My husband lost his job last week and I haven't been able to blog about it before now. We are trying to look at this as an opportunity to move in a new direction. We trying to look at this as an exciting new beginning. We are trying to remember that there are many others in a similar position and that we are in a better position than some because I have a job. We are trying to do all of the things that people tell us to do and think when they first hear about our new situation.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Michael lost his previous job eight years ago. This isn't an unfamiliar experience for us. Things are different this time. This time we know that we can make it. This time we know what true loss is because we've experienced the loss of family members since that time. This time we have two very mature very responsible and loyal sons to help us work our way through this new path we're taking. We love our boys. We are proud of our boys and we know that we are strong as a family unit. We will be fine.
The good news is, that when one dabbles in art based on found objects and ephemera, the process is pretty cheap! Art will go on regardless of our finances!
