Please Pray for Families, Their Trials and These Economic Times

Thank you Heavenly Father for carrying me during these past weeks. I feel so broken and I know that over time, you will make me whole.

Please pray for all of those families going through unemployment and underemployment.

Toby Is Available for Adoption!


Update! Toby was adopted on September 12!

We visited the NSPCA Animal Shelter website and immediately saw Toby's photo. He's now available for adoption.

We're hoping that the next family that adopts him will treat him kindly and keep him a very long time.

Remembering September 11, 2001

Marcus and I spent some time this morning talking about some of the tragic events on September 11. I followed it up with telling him that we must never forget.

I then asked him if he remembered the Oklahoma City Bombing. He said no. I then took the opportunity to talk about the Bombing and how he must not forget.

I prayer for all of those that were lost, the families and loved ones, to find peace.

Charles Started His Job Today!


My husband, Charles

Yes, my husband started his job at Kmart today!

I'm so proud of his determination. He applied for a seasonal position and was scheduled for an interview. Their hiring person called him last week to advise him that they had no openings. He told that he would still like to come to the store for an interview and they said yes. He told them that he used to work at Sears Grand in the tools, gym equipment and large appliances. And you know what? He got the job!

He'll be working part time and in the mornings, for now. Marcus and I are really proud of him.

Internet Connection is Down!

So, we're packing up the laptop and heading to our public library. Marcus is first with the laptop since he needs it for school.

The line for the library's computers is crazy. I should learn to schedule my time instead of waiting to use the laptop.

I hope everyone is well.

ps we are still mourning having to take Toby to the shelter but they do have a terrific animal clinic there. It helps to know that he'll be walking on all fours very soon. And we have lots of memories and photos of our Wonder Dog!

Volunteering When You're Unemployed

I've been reading the unemployed message boards for advice on keeping busy while looking for work. One thing many people mention is to volunteer your time. I decided that I would do just that at my church.

I stopped by and signed up for the food bank and the Thanksgiving Fest. Then I followed up with a call to the coordinator. She actually offered me the opportunity to work with her a couple hours a week organizing the volunteers list.

I'm really excited about being able to help these two causes and stay busy.
