With Good comes some Bad it seems....

On Friday the 13th I was laid off from my job.  I had worked there almost 4 years.  When I went into the hospital due to my water breaking early I got a call from my employer in my hospital room telling me they were stopping my pay until Livie was born.  Then I  had to take 3 weeks unpaid to recover from my C section while she was in the NICU.  I was given 3 weeks paid leave once she was discharged but then laid off 8 days after returning from maternity leave.  I'm a firm believer that things happen for a reason but I just don't understand,  After everything we have been through this year (some of which I didn't write about on here) how could I lose my job too?  I know hindsight is 20/20 and it's always hard to understand why things happen until later but seriously, can I catch a break?  I won't go into my feelings about being laid off on here.  But obviously I'm upset.   

Needless to say, as soon as I was laid off I was on the computer networking and applying for jobs.  I have some potential leads and have had interviews but nothing concrete as of yet.  My full time job as of right now is MOMMY and WIFE. 

Even though things aren't perfect right now I am still blessed and happy. I know the right opportunity will come its way at the right time.  At least I have my loving husband, my two beautiful girls, my supportive parents, and some truly amazing friends.  

Thank You all for your love and support.
