Bad news I got early this morning....

Posted by Cecile at Monday, October 13, 2008
I received an early call this morning from my husband at work. First he asked if I am fine, and I said yes. I asked him "why?" He told me that he is going to get lay off from work. The company he works for is laying off 1200 people and the effective day will be February of next year. I am prepared for it that is why it did not come as a surprised for both of us. The first time he got laid off from Texas Instruments was very devastating to us. Silly, but we both cried and were worried what is going to happen to us. It took awhile for me to get over that feeling. It was even harder when we sold our house. I love that house in Texas so much that even now, I still get a teary eyes when I think about it. Hubby is only 8 months working at the company; exactly will have 1 year on February. I am just hoping he will get a job there, for they have 200 job openings on the other department, maybe a job somewhere else, maybe in Utah. I always have this feeling that everything is going to be fine when something unexpectedly happens in our life. I always know that God Is always there to help us. I have proven it many times. I know we will be ok. I thank Heavenly Father and Jesus for being there for us during those difficult times of our lives. They will never leave us.

Sorry to hear about that, I also have a friend who has the same experienced as you are. Last year, they moved to Oregon. God will always find a way to help you both back in track:) as what they say, if god closes the window, he opens the door:) Just hang on to each other and support each other.

Ohh...sorry to hear that Cecile. But, God will really provide and i feel that you are positive on this belief. Even if the economy in the US is affecting us so much, I still believe that America is still the Land of Opportunities. Marami pa rin trabaho available for your husband. I pray for you and your family.

I feel bad about what you're going through, but you will be OK. LIke what you said, God was always with you whenever you needed him. Trials come our way in an unexpected time. We've been through a lot, but my husband and myself were here for each other.
I hope and pray that your husband will find another job. Tell him I wish him Good luck..Take care

I am just praying the the crisis wont last so long and the market can improve soon... this is a big mistake and big failure by capitalism!

I'm sorry to hear your husband is going to lose his job. Three years ago this month, my husband got the same news at his work (Tower Automotive in Tennessee). We moved to another state (West Virginia) five months later. We're still here! We love it here, and God has helped us grow in many ways since that bad news day. I'll be praying for you guys!
