The past few weeks have been quite the roller coaster ride. My fiancé, brother in law, and six other co workers have lost there job in the Local 1971 Port Chester Fire Dept…YES.. A  MONTH PRIOR TO OUR WEDDING!  While I will not rehash the events leading up to this, I will share with you the shitload of feelings that I have been going through.. angry, sad and wanting to kick someone’s ass to giddy because of fatigue and laughing  uncontrollably with friends who have become my family.The situation itself has introduced me to other people, women, friends, neighbors, coworkers,  who have shown me that in extremely tough times, they are by our side..no matter what or who we are facing .and they have restored some faith in humanity as I was giving up.

First hand, there is no choice but to take things ONE DAY AT A TIME. No amount of worrying can change the past few weeks. When life changes in the blink of an eye it forces us to adjust very quickly and without warning. The certainty in all of this insane uncertainty is that it shows me the strength in times of despair .
Until next time…

Peace, Love, &  Resilience
