In the land of the Unemployed but still in His hand

Hey guys! Well today has been a rough to say the least. I was fired from my job this morning. It was not because of misconduct or insubordination or anything like that, but because of my sales numbers. Anyone in sales knows how cut throat it can be, and well I got cut!!! :) My numbers were not actually THAT bad, I was at 96.5% to goal, but obviously not enough. And I am actually surprised at how well I am doing. The Lord has been most gracious in this bend in my road. Too many things to list here, but He has really protected Sweetness and I.

So as my Dad says, it's time to "reboot" and turn the Etch-A-Sketch upside down and shake it and let's start over. Apart from eating a half container of Betty Crocker icing tonight as solace, I have been doing great. I know this is going to be for the best. God has a plan for me, and hopefully now that I am out of all this stress, maybe we can make a baby!!! LOL

On the baby front, we said if I lost my job we would not do the frozen cycle in November. Well after calling the clinic today and canceling everything, the Lord has provided an angel and the means to maybe go ahead and do it in November. I am going to call the clinic in the morning and see if I can get my appointment back for Friday, and my mom and I are going to talk to the doctor and see exactly what this cycle entails (now that we know what seems to be wrong with me).

Thank you to all my family and friends who have prayed for us, and have been sooooooo supportive today. The Lord knows just what you need, WHEN you need it. When I got home from getting fired, I had the most wonderful card in the mail from my cousin. It was so cute on "How to Make a Baby"-- it talked all about relaxing, fuzzy socks, and taking lots of naps! It really made me smile. Maybe, just maybe this is our time. Thanks Meredith!

Please keep praying for us and my job situation, and I will let you know what our plan is on Friday! Love y'all!

Ending with a Scripture-
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
-Revelation 21:4
