    Smile UPDATED!! Recession got us yesterday!

    Folks,

    I would ask for your prayers for my wife Wilna. She got laid off yesterday from a job she had only been doing for 1.5 years. She was not happy with the job and feels some relief, but now the reality has hit her.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hey Chris,

    I know the feeling. I have a really good job but when the stress gets poured on thick I've said to myself if something happens the first thing I'm gonna do is give myself permission to take a breather and thank my lucky stars all thats over. WHEW!

    Saying some prayers tonight for you. I hope she finds something she'll enjoy quickly.

    sorry to hear that. just last yr i got laid off in dec(07) and i took me 7 months to find a job wen i did i was there for 2 months then they laid me off for a month then called me back thank god. and on top of all that my wife also got laid off in march of 08 and in about 2-3 months we lost everything and almost our marrage. If it wasnt for oboma signing a stimulus package for transit i probably b workin at Wendys, wife is still unemployed but i make enough for us both and the kids so we r good now. A lil advise though to help u and ur wife, what ever happens be there for each other and remember that it will get better, not sure how ur wife is but mine kept blaming herself for losin everything. 2 is always better than 1.

    Nothing wrong with working at Wendy's if that's what it take to get by.
