My Quest and Current Project No Finishes for May

The first thing I want to do is thank my future daughter-in-law In love with a FireMan (stop by and say hi :) she is awesome. for the very nice post about my son and I as well as all the prayers from my family and hers. You see I am not the only one laid off in my family. My sister is also laid off and my dad's girl-friend will be soon. They are lucky in a way, they will get unemployment as well as qualify for the different programs available to those who qualify for unemployment. I will know in 6 weeks if I will qualify, but if they go back a year I will get nothing. They are not offering me a severance either. I did find out I can pull out my meager retirement which should carry us to August. But life with out any money coming in is really scary.

In my search for emplyment, I have found all sorts of things about the job search. They all want to know your credit score, as well as your college transcripts for a few. There are tons of work at home jobs, that one can pay to get into and then of course can't figure out how to do the work involved. There are a few legitimate work at home jobs, I have applied for a telemarketing job I did a couple of years ago. Not sure how it will work now but it will be a minimal income that will carry me through until full time work appears.

I have almost finished my Christmas Tablecloth/Tree Skirt see...isn't it pretty just have to finish the embroidery and add the gold(I am thinking silver maybe silver and gold mixed...what do you think).

On the upside, I think I may have a little more time to sew. I won't have a 2 hour commute every day.

Have a great day and God Bless All of You. May all your prayers be answered today and angels appearing out of nowhere with many blessings for you.

Happy Mother's Day

I would like to wish all mother's out there a Happy Mother's Day.

I know this is a happy occasion for many, but...there are those who are carrying many burdens this mother's day. In some way's mother's day is a bit over rated. I cherish being a parent. This year I guess I am thinking of women who have empty arms this year. My friend who lost her child, those empty arms of women who were not blessed with children.

This year we should do something different for those with empty arms and women who have never had children for various reasons. We mother's are blessed with joy and sorrow every day of the year by seeing and holding our children. Maybe...we should share the joy of our children with our dear friends who long for a hug and a big sloppy open mouth kiss of a 6 month old baby (have to be careful of that one sometimes the baby just seems so full of love their kisses come in attack mode zeroing in on a target).

I am working this mother's day, for some reason I thougth it was next week. This will be my chance to bless others, I have put my bracelets on sale today as an affordable gift for those in pain. Magnetic therapy really does work for most people.

A mother's love is one of the greatest gifts we can give mankind-sharing it with others- priceless!!!!

I previewed my blog on this post and wouldn't you know, the daily bible verse for today was:
Philippians 4:19
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. (NIV)

Special Prayer for Today
Dear Lord, bless all the mothers out there holding them in your hand as they raise their children. Cherish those who for various reasons do not have children with them (only you know the why and the reason ) this mother's day. Bless all the women reading this, blessing them, giving them strength and provide everything they need, carrying the burdens they bear. Thank you Lord for blessing me with my child(children), teach me to teach them for they are our future. We know you have a marvelous sense of humor Lord and if we teach these children it may make a difference of which nursing home they put us in (the island paradise or the spare room in the basement).
Thank you Lord for lighting the path.

God Bless all of You
