nothing to do with cake.......

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
My husband was told today that friday is his last day at work.
He has worked for hp for over 6 years and they're letting him go just like that......We have already bought plane tickets to go to florida to celebrate our anniversary and now we need to cancell that. I am so overwelmed but don't show it to him really because he is already so stressed and looking for a job.
We need a prayer please!

Thank you all for listening (reading this)
I already feel like i know you all and feel that all of you are my family.

Prayers for you both, something will come along just when you think otherwise! Stay positive! And celebrate your anniversary in a smaller way, just new plans.

Hang in there......I know personally how hard it is to lose a job for no fault of your own...things will work out. I hang on to the saying that when God closes a door he opens a window.....stay focused on Him and it will be okay. I'll be praying for you!

This happened to my DH almost a year ago. I know exactly what you are feeling, and it can be overwhelming for sure! Keep reminding your hubby that he is awesome and that you love him. He needs the extra assurance right now. Don't be afraid to let him know that you are concerned, but try to keep your spirits up. As many have already said, God will guide you through this. I will keep you both in my prayers, and hope that something even better comes along quickly!
If you need a little pep talk in the meantime, we're all here for you!

We went through this a little over a year ago. They found out he was looking for a new job and let him go. We were so broke! We lived on unemployment! Things are much better now and I even fondly remember getting to spend more time with him. He even got to see our youngest take his first steps! Little blessings in disguise! You never know what the Lord has planned for you. have faith and enjoy the little moments that come your way!

You will come thru it and be stronger for it. I am keeping you in my prayers as well. Always remember sometimes there is truth in the old saying "Sometimes it gets darkest right before the dawn". If you need someone to talk to I am here! God Bless and keep you!

Sounds like we all are behind you... but keep this in mind.... that is what unemployment is for until he finds another job.... things will be fine... I know someone who worked for Dupont for like 15+ years and he was let go also earlier in the year but his unemployment was pretty much his regular paycheck and now is working for Microsoft..... making a little more then he was at Dupont...

I know you are in a scary situation but things will work out. I've been there and might be headed there again. Something will come along and it will be better! You are in all of our prayers. If you don't want to burden him right now just know that we are here for you. Feel free to PM or e-mail if you need or just want to talk.

You are in my thoughts and prayers. I am sure it will all work out for your family. If he needs any help with resume review, please email me, I would be happy to take a look and offer suggestions for improvement. Here is my email, msumissa@yahoo.com

I can't check it while I am at work, but I do check it at home regularly.

God Bless

I am sorry to hear that. I know it's hard to believe, but things will get better. I came out from work a year and a half ago to find a note in my car that said that my husband (of 28 yrs!), was on his way to Florida with a van full of furniture and things. Needless to say, I was completely shocked and in shock for quite a while, to the point of losing 22 pounds (and considering I'm only 5' tall, that's alot). I have 3 boys (18, 22,25); and I wouldn't have made it without them. My youngest son just finished his 1st year of college (for which I'm the only one paying), with a 3.83 grade average! I've met someone who is a great guy and treats me wonderfully. They say that everything happens for a reason, and while it's hard to understand that reason some time, you have to believe that it all will work out.
