This time of year we all start the process of thinking of what we are thankful for. Why do we only focus on this one time a year? It shouldn’t be 30 days of thanks. It should be a lifetime of thanks. Times get tough, believe me I know.
The past few months have been the hardest I have dealt with in a long long time, but I discovered something! I have the most wonderful family and friends out there. They have taught me more about myself and the person I am.
Even when times seem to be the worst, there is something there to be thankful for. After 17 years with a company that I thought I would retire from, the unexpected happened. I got laid off. Not only did I get laid off, after 19 years with the same company my hubby did too. We were wrecked, sad and angry.
That’s when it happened, things just came together. We had support from friends that are family. We couldn’t have asked for more through this time. Becky and Eric Paulk may not be my blood, but they will always be my family. They taught us what relying on someone else is like. You have to understand, we just didn’t do that, but we needed to. We will forever be grateful and thankful for them.
Things are much better now. Rob starts back at Walmart on Monday and gets to keep his tenure and everything. I started my own business, Grippi Business Solutions. And I wouldn’t change the last 45 days for anything.
So, THANK YOU Becky and Eric. You have done more for us than you will ever know or we could express.
Be thankful for what you have, what you have lost, and what could be. There is a reason, you just need to be open to see it.
That’s it for this time, take care and be safe out there my friends!
