My husband came home today with news that his company is shutting it’s doors next week. What does that mean for our family? I don’t know!
My husband’s company is a family business started by his Grandfather over 60 years ago. Currently owned and run by his father and his 2 uncles (3 brothers). My hubby has been working at the company since he was 15. He started working summers in the packing and shipping department. He moved his way through every department of the company because the plan was he would own the company one day. He has been working full time at the company for over 8 years. So this is not just a job loss. It is a devastating loss of a family legacy. A legacy that he had hoped his whole life of carrying on one day.
At this moment we are faced with so many life decisions. What does he really want to do with his life? What career path does he want to take? Where do we want to live? Since we are starting over, I guess we could start over anywhere right?
We have our 2 kids to think about. I have wanted to spend most of the day crying but I’ve acted normal so they don’t think anything is different. I don’t want to create any instability or fear in them. I want to protect them and keep them innocent.
So what do we do? I’ve always dreamed of living somewhere warm. Do we relocate and hope for the best? Do we stay here where we have more relationships? He has a dream of starting his own IT company with web design. I want to be positive and encouraging for my husband, but I’m so stressed out and scared. Tell me we are not the only ones that have hit this cross road?!
At this moment the only thing we can do is stay positive and see this as an opportunity. Hopefully we will do something great that we wouldn’t have done before.
Signing off as- hopeful and scared it’s making me nauseous!
Throwback Thursday style! Me and the hubs in 2005 at Universal Studios!
