Default Nothing like bad news at Christmas.........

When I was a kid.....I used to write poems to express feelings. Not a kid anymore, but still have feelings.....


3 days before Christmas
and I just lost my job.
The customers deserve cheerfullnes,
they will not see me sob.

I'm not young anymore~I'm 52
half crippled from arthritis...
What am I going to do?!

Am I scared, worried? Oh you bet.
This is going to get bad
But hey, I haven't given up on me yet.

It's no ones fault, nothing was done wrong.
The boss tried everything he could,
to keep the business strong.

I know he too, is laying awake tonight,
wondering even now,
how to make this right.
Yes, I'm scared, and I'm worried about me....I don't know yet how, or
even why...
What I do know, is this too, I'll survive.



foot note: anyone got any leads on jobs in Gladwin area????????

Life is unpredictable that's what makes it fun.
I too know employment is depressing and glum.
I'm too optimistic to let the economy spite me.
I know if I lose my job I would go on the run.
Because I know if that cop catches me I am all done.......

Even though it seems really important, it's just a job.

My Aunt got a call that her brother (not my uncle) was in the emergency room and vomited, aspirated, and had a heart attack. He's now unresponsive and on life support. She is going to have to decide to pull the plug today or tomorrow.

So remember, a job is just a job.

Thank you for the reality check. Sorry about your Aunt's brother. I guess we all need to remember no matter how bad we think we have it, it could be worse. Count our blessings,focus on the possitive.
I hope any/all members who read this (even those who don't) have a wonderful holiday season. Be safe and keep priorities right.
