We are feeling the Economy!

Well its official...the effects of the economy have hit the Horton house and hit it bad! I was headed to work Friday and I always call Michael on my way to work and he didn't answer this time, which is not unusual. So a few minutes pass and I text him to see what he is doing. I am almost to work and I call him again to tell him it will be a very busy day and I might not get to talk to him. He answers this time and proceeds to tell me that he's sorry he didn't answer earlier but he had just been laid off!! I think I took the news worse than Michael did! I started crying and thinking about everything in our newlywed life was starting to fall into place and we would soon be in our new house. Michael be the strong man that he is tells me everything will be ok, tells me how much he loves me and he will call me later. After many, many tears and several hugs from friends and women I work with and talking to my parents I was starting to feel a better.

Once I got home Michael and I just sat on the couch and cried for a few minutes and then we put it behind us and decided we weren't going to let it get us down. We decided we were going to go rent movies, order some dinner and have a night at home to ourselves!

If you could please keep Michael in your prayers while he is trying to find a job.

Thank you to everyone who just simply gave me a hug on friday, that is exactly what I needed!!


  1. Oh Heath...I am SO SO sorry to hear about the job loss. Thank goodness we have a God who is the ultimate provider...even when it is in unconventional ways!! He has never proven to be unfaithful.
    On a lighter note, I am SO PUMPED about your blog! And, I HEART your colors & design!!
    You are one precious gal who my family and I are blessed to know!

  2. Oh goodness guys. We are so sorry :( You are both in our prayers!
