a little bit of hope will do it


i am finding myself to be in a quiet and reflective mood, keen though and hopeful for what is on the horizon...a feeling which has been so hard to hold onto in these long months of unemployment. just yesterday though my fiance got word of a definite contracting position which will put food on the table and worries at bay for the next few months! it is more than i could ask for and all i need to smile! when life is stripped down to just surviving, you really do perk up and realize how silly all the other worries look in comparison, like an old woman with caked-on make-up and too many hair accessories.

so we have our little seeds of hope now. i apologize for the oozy-gooey cheese of this post...as a general rule, i firmly believe one should only involve cheese if you can eat it (mmm...)! i just snapped this photo of my basil sprouting the other day though and find it so appropriate in retrospect. so go figure that it is back to snowing here now...it's going to be ok though, i know those little sprouts on the windowsill and us to are going to keep pushing up through the muck. sometimes you just need to get out the galoshes and embrace it until the sun decides to grace you with its presence once more!

p.s. i'm trying to get to 100 followers this week...so if you've been reading along and haven't made it official, please consider scrolling down just a few steps and clicking on the google follow button which makes it easier for you to do so!

I can't follow, but I do comment ;)

My husband has been unemployed since October, I can relate to the worry and strain that comes with it. Everything happens for a reason, and I'm sure it will work out for you both.

'tis alright, thanks for your comments, i love reading them! i enjoyed finding your blog the other day too.

we're going on 8 months of unemployment without being eligible for unemployment pay...rough stuff indeed but you're so right...everything is for a reason and the right thing will come along!
