btw ...

It has been a long time since I last posted. I have one steadfast rule about blogging ... never, never write about work, my employer, coworkers etc. Hence, the explanation for my "time to be silent."
The day following my last post I was informed that, due to the economic condition of our state, my position with the district will be eliminated in June and I will not have a job in the fall ... the first time in 20 years! I should be getting my RIF notice in a few weeks and will be joining Oregon's 12% unemployed in June.
I do have mixed feelings ... it will be strange not going back to work in September but a part of me is also looking forward to the break. I am on a twenty-seven month recall if the economy turns around but perhaps not in the same position or building.
I am so thankful for such supportive friends/family and those who have modeled how to graciously walk through this with trust, hope and faith.

You have put in way more time working than you should have and now it's time for you to have more than a "break." Sometimes we
get messages that we don't hear or pay attention to but this one is loud and clear and it's a good wake up call--like it's time to slow down.

I pray many blessings will come out of this. I think Greg's job loss probably saved his life! Love, R (DaisyMom51)
