Bad News..

I just wanted to let you know that I am having a little time out. If emailing I may take a little longer than usual to get back to you. Unfortunately our news re: Gary's job today wasn't good and he lost his job. As you can probably imagine my mind is on other things right now. I have a few things I will post over the next few days for challenges which I have already created.

Hugs,

I believe God is there for you and your little ones and won't let you down if you trust Him! He loves and adores you and your family. Take all the time you need away from blogging and focus on what you need to. We'll all still be here, and so will all your adoring fans. WE LOVE YOU!!!
You'll be all right!
Big hugs,

Nikki, I am so sorry. I know how frustrating and scary this is for your family. However, I have faith that things will get better for you. I will pray that Gary finds another job soon. Try to have strength...be as supportive as you can for him. I know it scary for you, but someone told me (when we were concerned about Scott's job), that he is under a lot of stress...so he needs support from you more than ever! Big, Big Hugs!!

It's so hard to hear this kind of 'bad' news. Be strong and optimistic. My husband went through 35 years of highs and lows (food stamps & financial aids)with his construction job and I always worried whether we'd see the light at the end of that tunnel. It's a gut wrenching feeling but we had to hang tight. We survived to retirement and appreciate everything we have. You can do it too. My prayers are with you and your family. MarilynY

Tonya said...

Oh, Nikki...I'm so sorry...I know so many who are going through this, but that doesn't make it easier when it happens to yet another friend. My hubby will be working every other week for a while....which still stinks, but at least he can say he still has a job (for now). My thoughts & prayers are with you & your family! Big hugs, sweetie!

bumblebee creations said...

Nikki-I am so sorry to hear the bad news!! If there is anything I can do to help-let me know!!! My thoughts will be with you! : )

Heather said...

Nikki,

There is nothing really that I can say to make you feel better right now, I know you are scared, and upset and unsure of what the future holds, and probably even a tiny part of you is wondering how to craft after this!!! (I am sure that is one of the last things on your mind, but I know it would cross mine and then I would feel selfish for the thought so if you have had it know that we all would!!!!)

I really hope that Gary can find a new job soon and somthing comparable to what he had before!!!

I am so sorry for your loss and you go ahead and grieve because you have had a loss that requires grieving!!!

We will all be there for you when and if you feel up to coming back to blog land!!!

Please know that I will add you to my prayers and you are always in my thoughts as I so enjoy your visits to my blog!!!

Heather
