Thankful 30-#7

Zak's job

I have never been so thankful for employment. I think it's like good health. You don't realize how wonderful it is until you don't have it anymore. Every day we thank God for his job. I hope that we never take a steady paycheck for granted again.

Unsolicited advice: Please sit down with your loved ones and hash out an "unemployment plan of action." Zak and I discussed our plan over dinner one night, never thinking that we would have to use it.

Three weeks later, he was laid off.

I will be forever grateful that we had talked about the "what ifs" before they happened. It was so much easier to stay calm, have faith, and move forward.
