    Last week some very caring members gave me great advise to get through some rough times. My DH has been on a temporary "lay off" at work and he found out is was Not temporary at all! So all the plans we made for the Spring won't be happening. He was very devastated because he Loved his job! So with nothing to do be look at each other, things got a little sad for us. After taking stock of all the good things we do have, i deciced to get back to making my donation Baby Quilts. Between that and taking Vit D and getting outside even though it's still cold here, it has helped. Thank you to all that gave me such good thoughts!! Here is what i worked on this week-end!

    God Bless You and your family. There's nothing like doing a little work for charity to take you out of your life, is there?

    Very nice quilts! About the job - just trust God and He will work out His plan for your life! He must have something special in mind for you... Lay this trial at the foot of the cross and don't take it back!

    Your quilts are sure to brighten children's lives. Trying to stay positive through tough times is one of our hardest challenges. Hopefully things will get better soon.

    SuziC, I'm so sorry to hear of your husband losing his job. You both will be in our prayers.


    My husband is retired now, but several years ago, he lost a job where he had worked for 20 years. He was out of work for about 2 years and a new company came to a town next to ours. He applied and worked there for 13 years before having to retire on disability. But loosing the first job was the best thing that happened to us. He didn't have any benefits or anything there if he had retired from that job. The one he got later had benefits so much better and also retirement benefits. God knew what we needed and He provided. I pray He will provide for you and your husband as well, and I know He will.

    Your quilts are beautiful. Beautiful work.

    I'm so very sorry to hear about the job loss. It is so devastating when you don't know what the future holds. Stay strong for him and maybe a new opportunity will present itself. My son was without a job for over 2 yrs. and just started working in a good job in Fort Worth. It may take some time, but don't lose hope.
    Your quilt is lovely.
    Keep counting your blessings and we will all be hopeful for you and your husband.

    What pretty quilts! Nice work!!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your husbands job loss. I live in up state NY too and know just how bad the job situation is up here. My dh is reitired but needs to work PT and he lost his PT job a week before Christmas. :( But like others have said "keep the faith" and "when one door closes, another opens." I'm adding you and your dh to my prayers.
    PM me and let's see if we might live close enough to become friends and support each other.

    I've been thinking about you and couldn't remember your name. I've battled depression in my life and it's something that I will never forget. I wanted to get in touch with you.
    So glad you're doing some charity work. Things will get better!
    HUGS, Sue
