Unemployed again

The only news I can focus on today is that my husband was laid off again yesterday.  The solar company he was working for had state funding cut for the projects he was working on and they laid several people off.  Though they did not want to and told him he was the first to be re-hired if things change, they felt they had to make that decision.

That's about all I can say about that other then that we are overwhelmingly sad right now.  He truly loved the job and the workplace, something he's not had in such a long time.  And of course, the stress of needing to find a job is back on us again after a three month delay. Three months of hope and plans dashed in a 5 minute conversation and a "sorry, we just don't have a choice" discussion.  We were so hoping this was the company he could retire with, but for whatever reason, divine or not, it is not to be.  Stress is the ultimate order of our lives, it seems.

I'll be back in touch when I have my bearings back, just can't feel it right now.

Oh, Vonnie... I have had some great jobs and some not so great jobs. I can imagine how hard it is for your husband to lose a job that was really great.
I'll be thinking of you and your family and hoping that something positive comes your way soon...

I hate to hear that he lost his job. Maybe God has a plan for a better job for him.

I'm so sorry! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May you find peace in this difficult situation and that all your needs will be met. I'm praying that the door opens for your husband to find something quickly that will be even better than you can imagine.
