Just when I thought things could not get any worse, they have …
After learning on Saturday that the board has rejected the agreement reached with their CEO, two people have come out in support of me and one of them has been subjected to a rather threatening backlash as a result. I am appalled at what is happening and more and more I am thinking that the time has come to walk away from the unprofessional and unethical behaviour that is becoming more and more evident.
And then whilst reading that unpleasant exchange I received an email from my daughter informing me that her relationship has broken up and she is now a single mother. She has shared a lot more with me than she has in a very long time but it is too painful for me to repeat. My heart aches for her and our granddaughter and with our current financial situation I can’t even think of going to visit her. OH does not know this yet because he is out and I am dreading having to tell him. I am afraid for both of us health wise right now. I don’t know how much more stress I can take.
At the beginning of the year I sent out the following greeting “Happy New Year to all our friends and family. We know not what the year will bring and for the first time I am not wishing for it to be better than last year because every year has its own disappointments, challenges and pleasant surprises. My prayer for us all is that God will grant us the strength and grace to rise to any challenge or upset that may come our way. May you all experience God’s hand and blessing on your lives in 2013.” Here we are just into the third month of the year, I am going to have to keep reminding myself of this prayer
