I just discovered a great product that would have made a nice addition to my recent camping trip. When you are out hiking in the mountains, you have to watch what you are packing. The last thing you want is to have a heavy backpack that makes it difficult and cumbersome to hike.

If you have been reading this blog, know I have been without a job for quite awhile. I am so happy to say I am now employed again and looking forward to starting my life again. I spent quite a few months searching for employment. I was very maddening and frustrating.
Years ago, it was fairly easy to find work. Today is a whole different story as me and millions of other people have found out. I will not get into the politics of today, but something just must be done. I was up against losing my unemployment. I was scared, angry, and having meltdowns. I am normally a pretty even-tempered person. Not so over the last few months.
I must apologize to the people that I might have snapped at and the ones that watched me lose control. I seriously had a hard time will the “It will be okay” speech. Sorry guys, but those of you that know me, also know that my jobless situation was not the only thing weighing me down.
So, I hope I am forgiven for whatever attitude that may have been present on certain days.
I am thankful for this new start and I will get back to my good place.
I have to.
I wrote about my Aunt Jessie turning 100 years old in this post. She went to heaven last Sunday. She was 101 and very close to 102. Yes, our family is saddened, but we also celebrate her long and colorful life.
I was privileged to spend time with her and her family as a teenager. I learned a lot from her in that short time. She always went forward in her life. I do believe she never looked back. That is something I am striving to do at this point in my life. No, I am doing at this point in my life.
Thank you Aunt Jessie for setting the bar high. Thank you for giving to others. Thank you for spending time with a slightly incorrigible teenager all those years ago.
I will not say rest in peace because some how I think you will be to busy to rest.
Heaven just got luckier.
