I sit here in tears today as I write about a very sad day for me yesterday. It seems I have become another statistic of the economy, I lost my job at a great company. They said they were eliminating my position. It was nothing that I did wrong they just had to cut back. I am still a bit confused on why they picked me but I guess I have to just look past it. Everything happens for a reason and God has a plan for me. I just have to trust in Him and know that it will all be ok. I just hope I can find something else soon. If there is anybody hiring they probably aren't going to do so until the first of the year so I'm sure I will be unemployed at least for the month of December. Why is it that companies let people go right at Christmas? I guess they do it because it is the end of the year but it really sucks. In my industry it is really hard to find a job right now. I was really very blessed to have the job I did for so long. I'm sure I'll have to do something non design related until something else comes up. Which is fine, not what I would want, but fine. What is most important is that I have the means to provided for my sweet angel. Thankfully Zac still has his job but he can't keep us afloat by himself for too long.
A part of me wants to get mad and just scream about it. Then the other part wants to just cry. I had 6 years invested there. Granted the last 2 were probably the best. The other ones I would be happy to forget. All in all I had friends there and don't regret too much. I will miss everybody. They are all great people and I loved being there with them everyday. I think that is what makes it so hard. I actually liked going to work. Some days were stressful but what job doesn't have that. There aren't too many people that can say they like their job but I truly did.
To my co-workers:
You guys were so good to me and I can't thank you enough for being my friends. We all went through a lot and leaned on each other in the process. I am so thankful for each and everyone of you. All I ever wanted to do is help and I hope somewhere along the line I did help you. I am thankful for what I learned from you all while I was there. The information is invaluable and I will carry it with me all the time. Thank you again for all the good times and I hopefully I will see you soon.
