And another page turns...
"Well, I am heading home to you..."
and the second text was -
"I am unemployed again".
I took a deep breath and started dialing the phone.
The meat of this story is that my sweet husband has NEVER lost a job. (His boss didn't offer any reason either as to why he was letting him go...)
In fact, quite the contrary. He has been his own boss for the past 2 years running his own business and very successfully. A dream come true for him...
Before that, he had only worked for two companies his ENTIRE life --both with long tenures.
Why did he leave his own company, you ask?
The insurance from my job -- to cover just me, him and two of our children was going to over $18K a year.
So, he put his hat out there again, got a job, and went to work and once again, provided...even though it cost him.
I know there are those of you out there struggling with the same things.
I don't pretend that we are special...
but man, this stinks.
I am not blaming the economy, the government, the times...
My heart is just trying to think of ways to encourage my man.
