Apparently, the universe heard me, in my last post. A few short days after posting, Bobby lost his job in a layoff. I was devastated at first, as we were coming off of an exeptionally tough year in 2010 anyway. But I can't help but feel at times that it is the universe's message to both of us, to push us in a different direction, and to help me to strengthen my faith, to find courage in tough times. He wasn't happy where he was and I knew in my heart it wasn't the right place for him. Once we got over the initial shock, I began to see that it might be a message from the universe telling us that it was not where he was meant to be. I've done a lot of soul searching since it happened and through my sorrow have realized that when one door closes, it is because another is meant to open, somewhere, somehow. Thank you all for your very insightful comments. I read them all and am comforted knowing that I am not alone on this journey. I'll try to post more but am swamped in CHA projects just now. So in the meantime, here's a valentine card I created for the JBS Inspiration blog.
