A Month Of Blessings – Day 30

This has been an amazing month in so many ways. It turns out that the last day of the month would prove to be the most eventful and hurtful and confusing day that I have had in quite some time.
I got up early in the morning and prepared for work, packed up my lunch and headed out the door for what was supposed to be my first day back after vacation. Well my boss, Sarah, met me at the door at 10 minutes till 7 a.m. and asked me to follow her to her office at which time I was informed that’s my employment was being discontinued and if I didn’t have any questions for her then I needed to go collect my things and leave.
I was angry, hurt and confused but I went and started collecting my pictures from my desk. I cried as I was doing so because the pictures brought back memories of friendships that had been forged and memories that we’ve created and I felt so sad.
I took a day to wallow but the whole point of this exercise was to be able to find the blessing. I am blessed to have a supportive and understanding wife who said not to worry about trying to find a job. I am blessed to live in a state that recognizes the marriage between my wife and I which allows me to be able to still have health insurance in spite of the fact that I am now unemployed. Thank you Jesus! I am blessed to have come out of this situation with people that I can truly call friends and who I know will remain in contact with me though we are no longer coworkers. More than anything, I am blessed to still be me.

Celebrating Love

September 21, 2011 is the 8th anniversary of the day that my love and I met. We have actually been together since that day. We met in a night club, of all place, but some things are just meant to be because we have been together since that day.

Having Tomi in my life is the greatest life adventure. I am truly in love with my very best friend. I know that with her I can be who I am and that is enough for her. She loves everything that I am as well as everything that I am not. She accepts EVERYTHING about me. I know that I can be vulnerable with her and know that my heart is completely safe in her care.

I’ve learned so much about myself, about life and about love from Tomi. I know that my life is better with her in it. She loves me without condition and I am truly thankful for every moment that we are blessed to share with one another. I couldn’t have a better partner to share my life with.

Knowing Tomi has taught me how to love with my whole heart and to love just because it feels good. I have gained more children and some grandbabies who I just can’t get enough of and she gained a child and more family than she knows what to do with.

I am thankful for the experiences that we have shared together and I am looking forward to many more years of the most amazing love I have ever known.
