Looking for the Open Window...

As some of you may have already heard, I was laid off from my job of just over two years on Monday. The company cut eight positions from the production team, including editors, designers, web monkeys and others. My boss made a point of telling me more than once that it was purely a financial decision and not a reflection on my performance, but frankly, that's small comfort when they've also just told you your position has been eliminated.

On the up side, I'm actually doing fairly well, all things considered. Monday was hard, and I took the day to be sad and upset about it. But since then, I have just gotten my rear in gear and got to work at the job of looking for a job. I've already had one phone interview, and I'm in the process of connecting with a second.

This isn't a good time personally or economically to be out of a job. It's really going to put a major damper on our plans to buy a house before our lease is up in June. But I'm trying to remember something Gini Moore told me almost 15 years ago — that whenever God closes a door, he opens a window.

Y'all tell me if you see an open window anywhere, OK?
