It happened tonight.
We were told that it wouldn't and that we were okay.
We were told not to worry.
We were lied to.
Josh is getting laid off on Tuesday. Apparently over four years with one company, means nothing.
When he called to tell me, I went through a range of emotions. Anger. Panic. I cried. I yelled. And then I realized...what am I doing? (Other than scaring the hell out of my kids.)
Tears will fix nothing. Yelling will fix nothing. Anger will fix nothing.
I will find a solution. We will be okay.
Years from now, my children will never remember this.
But, they will remember how mommy reacted to it.
I will keep my head held high.
And a smile on my face.
