I thought I'd give an update. First of all, thank you, THANK you for thinking about us, and for all of the encouragement thus far.

For those that don't know, I am a sahm and my husband was laid off from a really nice job at the end of September. We had had enough money for us to live/pay bills thru November.

He has had several interviews, and he sends off more and more resumes every day. He even had 4 interviews with one firm! We thought it was in the bag...but the hiring attorney hired one of his 'buddies' that didn't even interview for the position. We also got another rejection today from another strong lead. The good news is that my husband is a wonderful man, and that our family is healthy and so happy. We are realy blessed beyond measure.

We have a few other prospects moving along, and still feel that we will here something very soon.

It's just that it's almost the end of November, the end of our savings, and Christmas is upon us...I am needing your love, light, and prayers now more than ever. Thank you and God bless to each one of you!

You are an amazingly strong and positive woman, and your family is lucky to have you!

I'm sorry to hear that that last prospect didn't come through...I hate when office politics and nepotism trump good judgment. :

I think of you and your family often, and I will send even more good vibes your way...I know this will work out right for you all in the end. And yes, you are truly blessed, to have such an adorable son, a hard-working hubby, and a new little one on the way.

Please know that many people care about you and are wishing you the very best!

You have a fantastic positive attitude. I'm so sorry things aren't picking up for you and your family. Hopefully something will pan out soon. Many businesses hire seasonal help. I know looking for a job is a full time job, but would it be possible for your dh to take some sort of temporary seasonal job just to help get you through the next few months?

You have such a good attitude about this portraitpixie... It really makes all the difference. Reading your positive affirmation thread, I am reminded of the "Circle" book by Laura Day that talks about invisioning your future/goal and seeing it as a reality. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as we all hit the holidays...
