Gone to Soon

My father-in-law John recently passed away at the age of 66. He passed away at home of a heart attack on March 17, 2011. When you really think about it, 66 is young considering lots of people die in their 80's. It is kind of weird to think that March 12th was the last day that I saw him. We had a birthday party for our nephew, John's grandson, that day. We knew he wasn't doing well health wise then, but we didn't really understand how bad it really was. It makes me think of all the things he wanted for Will & I. How he wanted us to be happy, have/adopt children, and to be better off financially to name a few. My father-in-law only wanted the best for us. He may not have known how to say what he wanted to say without someone taking it personally, but we knew he did it out of love. Isn't that what you want? I would rather of had it that way than having him keep his mouth shut.

John's passing also makes me remember my mom and how she died to soon as well. She passed away at the age of 36 of breast cancer. It is kind of weird to think that I have out lived my mother. I was only 12 at the time she passed and had recently moved to a new town, which meant a new school, new friends, a whole new way of life.

Just a couple of examples of people who are gone much too soon! I have imagined my mom & John meeting for the first time in heaven. That is a wonderful picture and puts a smile on my face. Our loss is heaven's gain. Just wish it wasn't so soon.

I am losing it.....

I have gone on interviews for 3 different places of employment. Out of those 3 places, I have heard back from one and we all know how that worked out. I am enjoying my time off, but this is the longest I have gone with out employment. Hence, I am losing my patience.

Are you still interested?

I had a potential employer call me and ask me if I was still interested in the position that I had applied for. By the time I got the message they were gone for the day. I then emailed to see if they were offering me the position. Well, they were and I had taken too much time to give my answer to them so they figured that I did not want the job. Funny thing is that they really did not offer me the job. They asked if I was still interested in the job that is not offering the job. So, my advice to people who do the hiring for their company is if you are offering a position to a person, tell them that you would like to offer them the position, not ask if they are still interested in the job.
