So far, my husband has driven 1200+ miles and handed out around 80 fliers in his new job as a roofing contractor.
Since it is a commission based job, and he hasn't closed a deal on any roof work, he still isn't bringing home any income.
This means we are still in extreme NO SPEND mode as we continue to nervously look at the horizon and wonder what is ahead for us.
We hope this job will eventually generate the income we need to keep us afloat.
Until that happens, or another opportunity for employment presents itself, we will stick to our layoff survival plan the best we can and remain faithful that God will provide for our needs.
During this time, I have been reminded time and time again that none of us knows what tomorrow may bring. When times are good, it is so easy to be lulled into the false assurance that tomorrow will be exactly like today. It is when routines are upset and plans are dashed that we realize each day is a gift and not to be taken for granted.
I will determine to appreciate what I have today.
