Since day one of working with this new company, things have constantly progressed forward, at times I may have lost a smidgen of my footing, but being the persistent type, I made the necessary adjustments and kept working towards one goal, to thrive in a business that is not a constant. The mortgage industry is not always the most reliable in terms of maintaining a regular career. It definitely has its ups and downs. There were many times that I had the rug pulled out from under me due to my choice in the profession, but having stuck with it, the rewards can be worth it. It also does not hurt that I truly do love my job and what it entails.
What is it about death that others feel the need to tell you that it will get better in time, the loneliness will subside and you will once again find your smile? How about just a simple ‘I’m sorry for your loss’ and leaving it at that.
For the past month and a half or so I have been working my ass off between having to work and then heading to the parentals every weekend to help pack and clean. The last week of October was the big push and I spent a week there. Although Russ accompanied me to the house, due to his work schedule, his appearance wasn’t as often as mine, but all the same, his help was very much appreciated.
