Today was the first of two very sad days. Layoffs began, and we lost some very good people that I call friend and have felt like they really are my work-family. One very important loss to me is someone that I trained. I believe she may have been the very first person that I trained for this company. And she truly excelled at her jobs. A wonderful person. A solid ray of sunshine on gloomy days and a fresh blast of cool air on a hot summer day. Completely competent, though slightly flawed in her politics. I'm at a loss to understand, why her? As soon as she told me, a tear came to my eye. Then another...

Indigo-Orion - I am so very sorry that you were layed off and I wish I had the power to change that for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm here when you need me.

Bring it on, round 2

I am so sorry this has happened to you.

I have been through a couple of layoffs myself and I know, it ain't fun.

Just remember, God may have shut this door but a window is opening for you somewhere soon, I know!!!

You take care.

Thanks, Nobama girl.

I am faced with a lot of competition right now in the work force, but there will be something out there that will work... and just as you said, I was thinking of Julie Andrews during that stupid meeting I hard yesterday where the the "boss" said it was "hard" to do this and for a fleeting moment I wanted to activate his dental plan. Then I shrugged, blinked away the tears and called a broker to cancel a meeting.

I just can't see the window yet.

Boy can I relate. I've gotta believe that something bigger and better will come along for your friends. Somehow, it all works out.
