A Ray of Sunshine Amidst the Stress

Some days are just worse than others. I have had a lot of bad days lately.  When I mentioned that I cut my job from five days to two…it was like the weight of the world lifted from one’s shoulders…but it did not come without repercussions and stress.   The person I worked for on those “cut” three days is ANGRY.   And, of course, I have been the brunt of the anger.  And for sure they don’t remember that I had agreed to do these three days only “temporarily.”  It’s now two years later.   It is with mixed emotions (mostly relief) that this part of my weekly routine has ended.   When I resigned from this portion of my work, I gave them seven weeks notice and I am tied to it until the end of March, but soon it will be over.   Ahhhhhhh.  I shall miss my BIG paychecks and extra benefits of being a “full-time”  employee, but I’d rather be poor than suffer through another year or two.

In the midst of the sadness came a bright ray of sunshine for my day.  A DVD of Salvatore Adamo appeared in my mailbox…custom created…just for me from a friend.  I will sit this weekend and watch and listen and my heart will be healed.  Thank you so much for this surprise followed by a thousand kind words.

Here is link to hear some your own Adamo.   Amicalement, Averyclaire

    This next month will soon go and you will be able to relax. There always comes a time when you need to put your health and family wellbeing first. It is a shame that your kindness is repaid in this way. You have a lovely relaxing weekend

    I’m sorry to hear things are so stressful. Just keep your eye on the prize and remember that this, too, shall pass. Lucky you with such a good friend. Hang tough!

    be like a rhino, you know, put your thick skin on.
    be like a duck, let their anger roll off like water
    hold fast, like Ephesians 6 verse 13-20
    love you
