Changes

 
September is a time of change.  That gentle shift from summer to fall, kids going back to school. For me personally, this September marks a change in my status from employed to unemployed. 
 
"Position eliminated due to merger."  That's what I write on my job applications.  And as I scroll through the job listings on multiple sites each day looking for those with my skill sets I wonder, is now a time for a change? Could I possibly find something more creative? 
 
I can't know what my future is but for now I remain open minded and positive and savor every minute of my job free days. I begin each day sitting with Clovie with my cup of Good Earth Sweet & Spicy tea and the paper, planning my day while he eats his breakfast. Then he'll let me pet him for awhile until I start tugging at those tufts of fur that are begging to be pulled. He turns to me, growls and scampers off and reluctantly, so do I.

Unemployment sucks--Mr. Mick and I will be thinking many good thoughts for finding a new means of income and personal satisfaction with said means of income.

You have more talent in your pinky finger nail than I could have in a few lifetimes of taking art class! Do not be discouraged. Life is joyful and full of unexpected gifts. Look at Clovis. He is a great gift, indeed! You are in my prayers. Oh, and you, too, Sue! Hehehe

I know the feeling. Been there and done that. It's scary. It sucks. However, you are very, very talented. Maybe this is an opportunity for you to unleash all that creative talent. Bunny portraits anyone? Hugs to you my friend. I've been working at my new adventure for 3 years. It's finally getting here.

I am sending a prayer, right now, that your uncertainty and wariness are replaced quickly with a new, perfect opportunity that you will love! I’m glad to hear from you, though, and know that you and Clovie are still having the same peaceful morning routine.
