When Life Gives You Lemons

Life ManagementLife has been tough lately. I was laid off from my state job in November. I ended my relationship in early December only to find out later that month he'd had another girlfriend for five months. These outside events have triggered some inside events that are shall I say... less than fun.
The job and the boy needed to go. I am clear on that. Knowing that hasn't made the transition smooth or less scary, but it has brought some clarity.
I believe some good things are in store for me. I also know that the growth (and it's associated pain) is not over. I have great support in many forms to get me through. As always, during these times, I have tremendous appreciation for my friends. My best friends, casual friends, online friends, my family: they carry me, listen to me, pray for me, and encourage me. I couldn't be more lucky to have them all.

Ditto on the hugs.
It took life getting pretty miserable for me to make some huge changes a few years ago that have made things so much better. I'm glad that you know that good things are in store for you. Take care of yourself while you're getting to them.

OK, remember what we were talking about last night- you in no way fall into that category!
SOOOOOO happy to see you. Tom said that we looked really comfortable sitting on the couch knitting.

OOH-I don't normally watch this show, but Amy Sedaris is going to be on "the Closer" tonight.

word verification: mudasuf- I love these words.
