Losing my job has been difficult. Trying to frantically add numbers, revamp budgets, apply for new positions and worry, worry, worry. We have felt a little helpless at times and I’ve of course felt sorry for myself.
As important as a job and money are in life, they are so far away from being number one. I scroll through my blog reader this morning and read the last few posts I’ve missed from Kellie and read this line:
“It’s those days when I don’t want to get out of bed. I don’t want to eat…I don’t even want to go on.”
I read that and just think who gives a shit about my stupid job? I have my family. My husband is here and healthy and loving and my son is thriving. Take everything away and leave me them and I will be fine. They are all that matters in this world.

You are right. I want to be a SAHM for baby #2.Can we afford it? NO. Do I care? NO. I will live out of a box just to be happy again!
Keep doing what your doing. Your an awesome mom!!
I didn’t realize you’d lost your job! So sorry to hear that! Hang in there girl!
I can’t remember how I stumbled upon your blog – but I REALLY love your pictures! you do beautiful work. I have a good camera but cant seem to get as good of photos as you have here! Is there something special you use? Have you tried the “speedlites”? Id love to hear how you learned to take such good photos! Im sorry to hear about your job. Things always work themselves out. =)

Sorry to learn of the job loss, but I wonder if there isn’t a reason. Remember, when one door closes, another door opens. I’m thinking this is the perfect opportunity for you to stay home and enjoy that baby!!! How about a shop online to sell some of those awesome pictures?? Let’s get more people advertising on your blog. I know I receive many hits from my little ad here.
Happy and healthy–heck, what more could you ask for???

I think there will come a time when you will thank the universe that you “lost” that job.
