So, I have been unemployed for about 4 months now. The last job was a temp and they did not choose to make me permanent. I have been applying to jobs daily, interviewing etc. Today I found out that I got the job I really wanted. I will start Monday and it is not temp
This is an amazing opportunity for me and my little man and I am so looking forward to our future

What great news! I'm so happy for you and your new beginning. Not to be all creepy, but your story is one that I've watched throughout your journey. You've handled things with grace, chutzpah, and strength. You're an amazing woman and I couldn't be more pleased to hear your new beginning is on the climb!

Thank you all and Threnody, you are not a creeper
Shelly, things are rough on unemployment but I was still able to pay my essential bills and feed my boy. Now I have been given a gift of being able to do more for him and with him. Thanks to all again, you have been my guides, support and friends. I value all of you more than you know
