The Other Shoe Has Dropped

Just when I thought life might be going "Good", I am awakened but again to what my life is really like : (
I have gotten two payments from the wills I was mentioned in and how wonderful it has been to be like other families for just a little while anyway who can actually breath knowing you have a little cash to back you in case of any unexpected bumps in the road, the ability to help others and so forth. They say money is the route of all evil but dam it sure makes life alot more fun. Now I'm not saying we went out and crazy shopped or anything but just knowing you could is a great feeling. I think you get the mind set I have been in, now comes the other shoe I should have seen dropping as they say.....
My husband says he gave his two week notice to quit his job!
Flashback to last year off of work for over a year, no jobs to be had ect. and this man wants to QUIT his job!! To say I was floored would be an understatement. He should be thankging God every day he has this job instead of quitting it. He says he no longer wants to be a painter that he wants to just do a job in a food store stocking shelves for example.
He has done this EVERY time in our life when we come into money, so I should have expected it but I thought after this last year seeing how hard it is for a 50 year old guy to get a job it would be different... I am so sick of it!! Sure we can live on the money for a good part of the year but then it will be gone! My son & daughter-in-law's closing on their house is scheduled for May 15th, We had given them some of the money to help them be able to get the house, this news of my husband quitting is just going to hit my son hard. I am sure he will want to pull out of the contract for the house so he can return the money to us. It felt sooooo good being able to help them that I would hate this to ruin one of the biggest days in their lives so I am going to try and shield this info. from them for as long as I can.
I have asked God to help me with this and to try and open my husbands eyes to what he is doing... Please send prayers my way if you could.
Thank you for listening : )
Until Next Time - God Bless!!

Oh Donna, how frustrating for you! I am terrified that my husband will lose his job because he did once before. I can't imagine what I'd do if he quit!

I will pray.
