This is has been a year of change for the Pratt family. The biggest change is that I resigned from my position @ the VA in March. The Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia has won on that aspect. I just cannot do a full time job any more. I put up a good fight. I struggled 7 years before letting go of my pride and realizing that I was just making myself worse. It has been a major adjustment. It's strange not getting up every morning and going to work. Plus, I really miss the paycheck. Thankfully, I did get approved for disability but it's no where near what I was earning while working. Therefore, Bob has had to take on a 2nd job to make ends meet. It has been rough but God has brought us thru every moment. This "test", "trial" or "whatever" this is has increased my faith. I have learned to trust Him more and more each day as I see Him provide for Bob and I through miraculous means. I have started a part time "job" however. It is very simple. It is called mystery shopping. I go to restaurants, banks, bowling alleys, fast food chains, and even the post office and act like a regular customer but I am observing their customer service, cleanliness, and attitude. I submit my report on-line. If I do it to their satisfaction, they pay me for it and will reimburse most expenses. It not a lucrative job, but it gets me out of the house and I enjoy it.
I believe 2011 is going to be a great year for my husband and I. I believe that God is doing a work that will manifest itself soon. I will be 40 in 2011. I am convinced that my 40's are going to be a great decade for me. I pray that God will bless you and your family in 2011. I pray that you will grow spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. That your soul will prosper and abound in God's love. Thank you for your friendship and your love. I cherish each of you whether I see you daily or just email you occasionally. I cherish you whether I have know you for years or if we have just met. I cherish you whether we are friends in real life or friends via Facebook.
Happy New Year and God Bless You All
