Received bad news today

Hi everyone,

My husband just called to tell me that he lost his job. I can't believe we're going through this again. Please pray for us that we find a job soon.

If you know of any IT management opportunities in the NY tri-state area, please send me a note. We need all the help we can get.

I'll check in with everyone tomorrow.

Sending all my love your way...

I will certainly lift y'all up in prayer. I haven't blogged about it yet (still not been made public here), but my husband has also lost his job :( I know exactly how you feel. And I guess you've read that were expecting a new little one this year? This economy sucks! But the Lord is faithful...

Oh Goodness,, what else can I say? This mess is getting out of hand. Not much going on down her in Texas either..but you got my thoughts..

I am so sorry, my prayers will be with you both, Being the other side of the ocean I can't help jobwise but it goes without saying you have my support.
Please take care.

Oh, Kelly, I am so sorry. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. I will be praying for a quick solution. {{{{HUGS}}}}

G said...

Oh man, that really does hurt. I'll try to keep my eyes open where I work. There may be a slight job freeze going on overall, but there are certain jobs still available.

If you find the time, please check my state goverment website at http://www.das.state.ct.us/

That is where they have job listings. It's quite possible a few things in the IT field are available.

Hugs and prayers on their way. We'll be thinking of you.

Mari said...

I'm so sorry. I'll be praying for great opportunities to be coming your way.

Jillien said...

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear that Kelly. I am praying for you but special, uplifting, morale prayers for your dear husband. It must be such a blow to him being laid off again.

He will find another job. Hey you never know. This search may take you to a new city... just like my husband's job is carrying me away.

prayers and blessings your way

There is a base in Rome NY that has a lot of IT companies that may be hiring. If this is a fit, e-mail me at estrella8888 at roadrunner dot com.

Hugs to you :O)

Oh my GOODNESS! That is a huge shocker. You will definitely be in my prayers. I know *HE* has the perfect job picked out for your husband...we just gotta figure out what it is.

I'm so sorry to hear that, Kelly. Yes, you definitely will be in my prayers. It is so hard on a man when he's the breadwinner and loses his job.

My own husband almost lost his job last week. They laid off half of his workforce and he escaped this round by the skin of his teeth. The last time he lost his job, I worked instead, and it was so rough on our relationship. He felt like he should be the one working and we both subconsciously took it out on each other. My prayers are with you, that you will find ways to uplift and sustain each other through this trying time. I hope he finds something soon. With all of us praying, things will work out, right? :)

Kelly said...

I am so sorry, Kelly! I'll say a prayer for you and your family. I sure do hope he finds something soon! HUGS!

Kitten said...

I am so sorry to hear the news. I'll be thinking of and praying for you and your family. I hope he finds something VERY soon. (((((HUGS)))))

Janna Qualman said...

Oh no. I'm sorry about this, it's so tough. But thinking of you!

shabby girl said...

Kelly, you absolutely will be in my prayers! I know this must be so scary! Two of my other friends have also lost their jobs very recently.
I'm sending you a big fat hug!!!

Jenners said...

Oh My God ... I'm so so sorry. I can't believe you have to go through this. You hadn't mentioned anything in a while and I hoped it meant things were OK. Sending you hugs and wishing him a speedy job search.

K said...

Crap...

I'll be sending positve thoughts your way. Wish I had something better to send.

Jenn@the loves of jenn said...

I'm so sorry to hear this. I will be praying that he is able to find something else very soon. Thinking of you!

Joanne said...

What terrible news for you, I'm really sorry to hear this! Are there many prospects close to where you live? You're definitely in my thoughts ...

Gerri said...

Oh Kelly, I am praying for your family. May God reveal the next steps to you. I am also praying for your and his strength and that through this trial your relationship will be strong as you support each other. Much love my friend.

Michelle said...

Oh Kelly, I'm so sorry. That's no fun for you, but hopefully something appears soon for you - you know he's hireable in this economy at least, right? Fingers and toes crossed for you!

Mandy's Life After 30 said...

Oh Kelly, my heart is breaking for you! I can't believe this awful news. I feel like I jinxed you, since I just asked you about him and the job on Saturday! I take it back, I take it back! Anyway, I'm thinking of you. My husband says to see if there is recruiting firm there called "Tek Systems". They are a reputable firm that is always looking for promising I.T. people and placing them in jobs. Best of luck!

Hyacynth said...

Oh, big, huge hugs. Praying for the Lord to provide. Let me know if we can help in anyway.

The Write Girl said...

God bless you!!! I'm so sorry to hear the news. I will try to look out for you in case I see anything in your husband's area. Stay strong.

Susan Fobes said...

Hang it there!

Becca said...

Oh no! I am soooooo sooooo sorry! I will definitely keep you and your family in my prayers. I hope that he is able to find something quickly!

christy rose said...

Oh Kelly I am so sorry to hear that! I will be praying for all of you! But I believe that God will direct him to an even better providing job than the one that he had!! I believe that this will work out for your good!!!

H.K. said...

I will definitely include your family in our prayers. I know it must be scary and it is so unfair especially since this is the second time around. There's a company that my husband may get hired with since he's been laid off too, so if they have a division in New York, I'll send you an email.

Hang in there, you've got lots of people praying for you and on the look out for a job for your husband.

Angela said...

I'm so sorry to hear this. I will definitely be praying that God will see you and your family through. Just know that when God closes one door, He most certainly will open another, with many blessings on the other side. God bless.

He & Me + 3 said...

Kelly,
I am praying for your family now and I am so sorry.
Hugs,
Mimi

Valerie said...

Hang on in there, Kelly. It's hard, I know, we went through the same thing some years back. I hope it helps to know your friends are praying that things get better.

Trudy said...

Oh Kelly, I am so sorry to hear this. I will definitely be keeping you all in my prayers. We know firsthand the challenges that come with this as my husband just works two VERY part-time jobs right now. I will pray that God just has the perfect opportunity awaiting you.

Blessings to you!

Beth Kephart said...

Oh, boy, Kelly. Oh boy. I am so very very very sorry. We are all out here praying for you.

Love

SwedishJenn said...

Saying loads of prayers for you and your family Kelly. You will get through this and he will find a new job, an even better one..how's THAT for positive thinking?

Carolynn said...

Oh, wow. I'll hold the highest intentions for you and your husband, that a window opens onto new beginnings and exciting opportunities for you both. Sometimes, a closed door is a blessing in disguise. I'll pray for a speedy resolution to this latest challenge.

Dani said...

Oh no! How horrible! I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. That's a terrible thin to face. I hope something opens up for you soon.

Judith Ellis said...

Many blessings, my friend upon you and your family. My heart hurts yours most be broken considering how difficult it was to find this job. I will put the word out to friends I know in New York. I'm here if you need me. With peace and love...

Ken Devine said...

Life has a habit of kicking you and quite often it goes from bad to worse, but the situation is always temporary. Sooner or later you will look back from a position of strength at the things you went through. Have a little faith that the very best years are still ahead of you and that all that happens to you isn't bad;) I reckon you still have tons of blessings in your life.

When this happened to me, I was strengthened by the thought of things that the lack of money can't take away...friends, life, good health, a great family and freedom...things that you seem to have in abundance.
Good luck with the blip of a challenge you are facing.

Sending you lots of prayers, hugs and best wishes from Scotland. I know you'll not only come through this, but thrive.

Analisa said...

My prayers are with you. I have found two really good job sites. One is Indeed.com the other is USAJobs with the government. He will find something better soon. You know how in relationships you have a long term one and then you break up, then you get the "rebound relationship" consider the last job the rebound job. Well after that you get the real deal. Don't get discouraged, it will come.
In spite of all the negative things going on with jobs folks are starting new ones everyday.

Teri said...

Yuck. Just yuck yuck yuck. And yuck. Keep looking to the prize, I know there will be a great job in hubby's near future. Does his ex-company offer any type of job transition services like resume review, etc.?

I'm keeping you guys in my thoughts.

AudreyO said...

Ug that's the pitts. I do hope a new job comes his way very quickly.
