" Good Morning "

Good Morning everyone! I woke early this morning to a verb running through my brain. I can't remember what it was, but it was so repetitive that it woke me up. How odd. I've never had that happen before and now wish that I can remember what the word was as who knows, it may have been a sign.

Oh well, leave it to me to not see the signs and get lost! Whenever we've traveled in the past and my husband wasn't sure which way to go, he would ask me which way we should go. If I said right, than he'd turn left! Ah such is life, some of us should always carry a GPS!!

It is 6:30 a.m. and ever so quite in my neighborhood. I woke up to two inches of snow and it's still snowing. Katie went to church last night and then to her friends to spend the night. 

My husband is having a heck of a time trying to get home. The company he works for seems to be steadily going downhill. My husband has been struggling with this and all of the pressure that it is bringing on him. He has been there nearly nine years and is at the top of his pay scale. If he moves to a different company he would have to take a pay cut. But I wonder if this wouldn't be better for his sanity.
Ultimately it's his decision. But he could use some prayers right now as he is feeling trapped. He is also worried about the insurance headaches that his changing jobs could cause for us since we both have preexisting conditions. I know that he is feeling a great weight on his shoulders right now and I am very worried for him.

I am trying to enjoy the quite while it's here. It is so peaceful. Tonight if my husband makes it home, the girls are most likely to be here too so it will get hectic. But that's alright I will enjoy all the love that will surround me!!! 

I intend on watching the Superbowl even if my husband doesn't make it home. And if he doesn't, there is a good chance that he may just quit his job and go somewhere else. But I'm not going to worry about that right now. Right now I am just going to hope that the Packers win!

After this post I probably won't have time to get online until after the weekend. I will catch up with all of you then. So enjoy your weekend and stay warm and cozy!!

Maybe your verb was "Awake"?

I hope you guy gets home.

Although I don't suppose I'll be watching, "Go Pack!"

I know you SAY you're not gong to worry about Jake's job situation right now, but I read it between the lines! First of all, I hope he makes it home safely and that the two of you can discuss it. I understand completely about the preexisting conditions concern with insurance....

I bet you'll run into your "verb" in the next 24 hours! When you do, let me know, OK?

Meanwhile, my husband is in the great minority that thinks the Packers just might win! And they're playing on his birthday, so I HOPE so :)

I really feel for your hubby right now as my hubs is going through kind of the same thing with his trucking company. He has been gone since the 2nd of January and won't be home for three more weeks! They promise him loads then back out. What's going on in the trucking industry?

I'm going to be watching the game alone on Sunday....I will be cheering the Packers on.

I sure hope he makes it home and some decisions can be made. It sucks to be worrying about this kind of crap.

It's a quiet morning here too with freezing rain earlier and now snow. Hope Spring brings a good change for your husband and that he makes it home this weekend, Di. Winter has been hard for many...jobwise and healthwise, plus the harsh weather!

Hope your Packers win!

Enjoyu the quiet while it lasts, and th Super Bowl too :-) And I so understand the job situation dilemma - Skipp is in the same boat - wanting to leave but fearful because of insurance and pay cut. For today, we are all okay.

Love to you

Hi Di,
It is quiet and snow is gently falling here too. Enjoy this wonderful Saturday morning and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I do pray Jake will make it home soon.

Remember who holds your His loving hands. Love and Well Wishes,
Your friend,
TT (((HUGS)))

I think the verb may have been something like, "be still", that sign is all around you, in the gentle snow that's falling and the quietness that surrounds you.

"Be still and know He is God"

Changing jobs is a scary possibility, for sure. I'm sorry you have this hanging over you (both), and of course, my prayers will include Jake. these are just difficult times for almost everyone. Well, except for those at the top, the ones who were there before and many of whom caused this gawdawful situation.

Meanwhile, I hope your house is absolutely rocking by tonight! Enjoy the weekend, Di!

I'm in the same position as your husband. Going on 9 years and the company is going downhill. If I have to find another job I'll likely take a 40% or more hit on my income.

I'll keep you guys in my thoughts and prayers and hopefully things improve for both of our companies.

Don't mention this on my blog ok, my boss reads it. :)

Have a great weekend!

I hope that your husband makes it home safely and that his job issues get resolved. I'll be keeping you and your hubby in prayer!

Have a great Superbowl weekend!

Bernie said...

Gosh Di I had no idea that Jake was thinking of changing jobs....I will pray that all turns out well. It is hard not to worry about something as serious as this.
It is cold and snowing here today/tonight, but I have a good book and my fireplace. I would love to see the Packers win tomorrow, I am looking forward to the game....:-)Hugs

I hope your husband made it home safely and you're sitting side by side by the time the Super Bowl starts. :)


Dee said...

I pray wisdom and the Lords guidance with your husbands job situation Diana...maybe your word was trust!

Linda Higgins said...

this totally sucks! And I couldn't think of a worse thing this time in your life...the insurance thing sucks and knowing that it isn't easy competing with a younger generation of truckers either! ARGH I will pray you guys! I am soooo sorry....
