Things are better now, but it took a long time before we could feel happy about it. I no longer work at Walmart. I am back with my old company. The reason we couldn't celebrate the occasion of getting back on to the job was that My FIL died on Thanksgiving, a few days before I got the Offer Letter from my employer.
This man taught me what it meant to be a professional in the work place. He taught me the skills I needed to take care of his daughter. I have known him since I was 16 years old. He will be missed.
Its only in the past few months that I have started to feel happiness at my success. We can pay our bills now. We are slowly replacing the personal possessions we had to sell to survive. Our main goals are now to save money and appreciate that we can pay bills and buy a dinner out once in a while now.
