Nothing has changed, at least not in the ways that are real and that recognizable (we never know about the plans God has in the works). I've been forbidden to speak about it (loose lips sink ships) except I will say that the severance agreement has still not been settled, and we still don't have medical insurance. For those who thought we could go on COBRA, you're right -- we could, to the tune of $2100 a month. If the severance agreement pans out and we have medical insurance for the duration, I pray my husband will have a job by the time the term runs out. If not, we will have to go to "the marketplace" (aka Obamacare). My husband and Faith could use a group like Christ Medicus Foundation CURO because they have no pre-existing medical conditions. But Noah and I do, and we would likely not be accepted, thus Obamacare. But, that decision is down the road a bit (I hope) and I'm trying to live one day at a time.
I hope that I didn't hurt the feelings of our friends and family who either didn't know about our situation, and thus couldn't offer their love, or who had reached out to us. Obviously if you didn't know, you didn't know, and if you reached out, then you were already offering your help and prayers.
I want to thank God for the many friends I have here on my blog. I consider you as real as the friends I can see and hug, except our hugs must be long distance and felt with our hearts instead of our arms. You have lifted me up and kept me in prayer and I am so, so grateful. Thank you also to the friends who have emailed me, some I have made rosaries for, some who have been readers for years and we have established a more personal friendship. I appreciate all your kindness and mostly your prayers. At one such reader's suggestion, I am praying the novena to Our Lady of Prompt Succor. Running to Our Blessed Mother comes very easily to me, and I beg her to take my petitions to Her Son, as He always obeys His mother if it is God's will.
I pray God's will is revealed to us soon.
