Today is a much better day for us. We still have a job, things will change but we can handle that. My husband told our boss that we would take a pay cut to help the company out. They were shocked because (we found out) that our rates are lower then any of the other engineers and none of them offered to do that. Go figure.
We received our yearly Christmas card from my oldest friend. She has retired from her teaching job at a deaf and blind school in California. Her days are spent taking care of her grandchild for 3 days a week.
So, my mind went down memory lane, she was 1 and I was 3 when we met. We grew up together, she taught me how to swim, I introduced her to her husband. We were at each other's weddings. I was there when she gave birth to her first child. Her children, I adored and spoiled with a passion and watched them grow into handsome young men and marry. Now they are having children of their own.
I can look back and say we had very good times and our lives are better for it.
