Peace, Out

Things are pretty bah-humbugish around the office today. I guess that’s to be expected when lay-offs are more prevalent than mall Santas. I had hoped — naively, I see — that I, along with my fellow co-horts in advertising, would have a full-time job through the end of the year. Now I’m hoping for Wednesday … as in this Wednesday. Sigh.

I did get this e-mail from my Mom this AM and, as always, she has helped me to regain my focus:

Good morning lil’ trooper. I am sooooooo proud of you; you are handling this
latest curve in your life like a champ!!! There was a time this would have had you crying for days and overcome with worry ... now that you have Cooper it puts
a different spin on things, huh?

Head up young person, just keep praying and keep positive ... let us always remember those so much less fortunate than ourselves!!


Here’s to being grateful for my many thousands upon thousands of blessings. Like they say, when God closes a door, he opens a window.

May we all find that window.

Blessings to all who happen by this blog.

-smell you later-
Coop’s Mom (aka Tessa)

Well crud. That is bad news...but good to see you are handling it with such faith. God is sooo BIG and can do anything he wants, remember that as you feel out of control. I too have been praying for a possible career change. 7 years of teaching is wearing me out a bit. If you ever have a brilliant creative idea you can count me in with ya :)I've been meaning to tell you how super cute Coop is getting. He is precious and I need to see him!!!BTW Pursuit of Happyness makes me cry everytime too. Sure puts things in perspective, huh?Love ya-Lex
