New Year, New Beginning...

Hello,
I hope this finds you doing well and having a good day.

Note I wrote when called into the plant managers office this morning
As of today, I am not longer an employee of Stark Mfg, LLC.

I was told at 8:20 this morning that "due to recent changes in the economy, we are eliminating your position and terminating your employment".  Then proceeded with layoff/unemployment provisions, etc.

I am determined not let those responsible, or the situation, get me down.   If you have been with me for any time at all, you know that I totally believe God's will is being done.   I'm trusting Him and stepping out in faith on this new adventure in life.

Leaving today was bittersweet.  On one hand, I'm going to miss a lot of people who have become like family to me over the past 23 years.   On the other hand, I'm glad it's over.

So you may be wondering what my plans are now.

Well, tomorrow I plan on baking a Cinnamon Swirl Bread.  It will be my first time baking a yeast risen bread.   I was going to bake it last week, but we had sweet breads and cookies left from Christmas and New Year.

I'm going to make a love quilt.  I still owe one to the quilt guild I belong to and I want to have it done to take to this month's meeting.

I'm going to make a table cloth for my dining table.  I'm going to try the "Quilt As You Go" method.  If it works as good as I'm hoping, I plan to use that method on a larger quilt, to be completed by the end of May or sooner.

That's a start for my time off on unemployment, between job searches.

I finally have my Christmas decorations put up.   I put the two angels, I found at a flea market a few weeks ago, and the angel I had in my cubicle at work on my piano.  It is a nice change.

My LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped.  My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song. ~Psalm 28:7 NIV

Have a wonderful weekend!  :0)

God bless and keep you,
