A rant, not particularly how I'm feeling. At the moment, anyway. LOL

Well, part of it is...the part about the job is true . Looking for another...keep me and Karen in your prayers.

Rent is a yellow dog
sniffin' 'round the door
each and every month;
and who thought light could be
so heavy, weighing
down exhausted shoulders?
Decisions must be made;
what bill can be skipped
in order to buy food?
The job I relied on
is on shaky ground;
faults of uncertainty;
and those up on the Hill
raise their pay and slash
the budgets of the poor -
it's another day in
Paradise for those
just trying to exist.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

Dear Karla,

As it's been said, "when one door closes, another opens". I am praying for the door to open for you soon. Keep believing!

Love & Light,

You deserve a forum, I just wrote your sister Karen. Was going to send you a copy but it's best that she'll tell you the details. But you definitely need a forum and I know a Christian writer who can do just that for you. So much here is said that our so-called leaders are forgetting. . . the ones who elected them are the ones who are neglected by them. And I know God is listening but sometimes God I think stands back and watches just how long we are willing to keep quiet. But he's always in charge, and is polishing us all every day and night with spiritual brillo pads. LOL.
Hand in there Sister K, you are "brilliant!"

Of course it goes without saying that this is a good write Karla. I doubt you have it in you to write poorly.

But I want to add that one door doesn't close without another one opening with a better opportunity. Sometimes we have to be 'booted out' of our present situation in order to realize that life can be much better if we move on. If I may make a suggestion: Put your feelers out while you have the chance to do so, and you might be surprised how many fish will leap for the bait. Businesses are always on the look out for reliable, experienced workers who won't call in sick every other day while they head for the beach. You and Karen are good people. This will work out dear. Much love, Michelle

I think of my aunt who retired with 60s dollars trying to make it in a 2006 world.

I can relate to the energy bills and most everything else going up. I have no solution, good luck on that job-hunting, that is tough in itself.
