Yesterday was another tough day for me. The mortgage company I work for had yet another lay off. (Only 2 months after the last one). We all knew it was coming the night before, making Thursday a very rough, sleepless night. I worried not just about losing my own job, but also about the fate of my sister, and my very close friends, who work with me.
Friday morning came and my sister and I were spared, but unfortunately some of my very best friends were not. While I am of course relieved to still have a job, (I was demoted), it will not be the same without my friends there to make it the place it once was. This one was particularly tough on me because the friends I lost were the ones I actually went to work to see. They made work fun, they were my lunch buddies, and they were the friends that made the mundane job I have worth having.
I will miss seeing them everyday, I will miss the sarcastic jabs, and I will miss having them as a fixture in my everyday life. My life already does not feel the same without them.
I will miss you my friends! Please stay in touch.
