A New Life

Posted on March 17, 2008 @ 6:27 pm

It was a big blow, in so many ways, when my husband passed away from a fatal car accident this past winter.  I honestly didn’t know how we were going to survive without him.  I missed him so much and was able to hold it together only because I had to for the kids.

It soon became a reality to me that I was going to have to get a job.  I had not worked outside of the home for more than eight years, since the birth of our first child.  I was not even sure where to start, as I didn’t really have any skills that applied to today’s workforce.  It was a very scary reality for me.

Miraculously, it was suggested that I get a job in garden maintenance.  I was told that I have the loveliest gardens in town and met many people would be happy to leave their gardens in my care when they went on vacation.  I decided this would be a good opportunity for me to make some income during the summer.

I know the job will not sustain me through the fall and winter months, but I guess I will cross that bridge when I come to it.
