Starting a New Chapter In Life

This week has been tough.. Life has all kinds of twists and turns, and they always seem to happen when you least expect it. With the announcement from General Mills last week, that they will be closing Pillsbury (our New Albany, IN  facility) I’m learning more and more that life is ever changing. Nothing ever stays the same and the things you take for granted can be gone in an instant.  I guess my first hard lesson of this was the loss of our beautiful son, Devin. I’ve known how this works ever since the day I got the news about him, so this really doesn’t shock me. Is it scary?..YES! But it’s not the end of the world! It’s so unsettling to be uncertain of your future and how you will provide for your family, but I have faith that God has a greater plan for us. That he is really driving this boat and we will go where he can use us for the greater good. Life is not about things or jobs. It’s not about keeping up with the Jones’. It’s not about shoes and handbags (although those things are very nice!). It’s not about fancy cars or houses, either. It’s about the love of family and friends. It’s about helping your fellow man. It’s about kindness and caring of each other. It’s about seeing the beautiful smile or hearing the laughter of someone you love. It’s about loving someone more than you love yourself. It’s about never losing hope and the excitement for living! I will never lose hope, because I know that without Hope, we have nothing at all. I also know this one thing to be true.. everything will always work out the way God intends for it to. We don’t always understand his way and we aren’t supposed to. Just roll with it and see what happens!! I’m feeling emotional and having some anxiety, but I will once again weather through what looks to be another storm. I realize it’s probably a blessing in disguise. I don’t know what the future has in store for us, but what I do know is this..As long as I have these people in my life, we will all be just fine! So wish me luck as I begin this new chapter of my life and please remember us in your prayers. Say a special one for my Billy, please and all my co-workers who will be affected by this.♥
Peace, Love and Hope,
