Big Changes

I did something today that I never thought I would have to do again. I put in an application at a clothing store  in the mall and I have an interview next Wednesday. So y'all wish me luck!

I haven't worked outside the home in 15 years, but we need the extra income right now since Alfred's work is so slow. I view it as a temporary thing. My heart has always been at home. So this will be a big change, not only for me, but for my family as well.

If it is God's plan for me to work outside the home for a season, I will do so with a willing and thankful heart. But for this week, I will enjoy my time at home with my family.

Good Luck. My heart is also at home but I had to go back to work 4 years ago because of our financial situation. My job has been a blessing in many ways for us. I'll be hoping for the best for you.

Good luck!!
I lost my banking job in 2008..
The same day my hubs was admitted to the hospital ICU and nearly died that nite,, after 3 months in and out of ICU, he is back working full time..
but the financial burdens remain and continue..
After submitting numerous applications, resumes", THREE actual interviews! It is a cruel world out there for experienced older female jobseekers..
Thank God for your opportunity!
warm sandy hugs..

Hi Tracy,
Good for you ~ I hope it works out!
I've been selling my homemade fudge at a local resturant for a little extra "pin" money:} Every bit helps!

Dear Tracy ~ Sometimes we do have to work outside the home. God is with us at all times. May you feel His love, peace and strength surrounding you.

Love and hugs from FlowerLady (who also works outside the home, and would love to be at home.)

Courage Tracy, I have worked outside the home for 38 years, bearing my children and building a home, like my hushband. I write about this on my Xanga blog. It IS a cahnge, but ..you will experiance new way of energy..participation...emancipation...and this is very good example/moddelling for your daughters, it is...for so many women will be single in our modern societies and so...they will have to support themselves and have the guts to keep at it too. This is the beginning of a new era. Good luck to you and yours.
Lieve groepen

My fingers are crossed for you. I hope it works out and that things
pick up for Alfred so that you can return to what you love to do. But who knows? Maybe this will be a step to something really fun for you and it might open doors to an opportunity hitherto unforeseen!
toes crossed, too, lol :-)
