On the 6th Day of Thanksgiving

The 12 Days of Thanksgiving

On the 6th day of Thanksgiving, I am thankful my hubby, my oldest 2 daughters and I still have jobs. My hubby works in the media, so I guess there will always be news. I'm a Church secretary, so I guess people will always need their religion. But my girls both work at the same Brake Parts factory and I'm worried about the slow down and failure of the automotive industry. I pray we will all be able to hold onto our jobs to provide a decent living.

Yes, I am also very thankful for my job as well!

Yep that is what I wrote about yesterday! We all have something to be thankful for in these uncertain times

I love your idea for the Days of Thanksgiving posts. I hope things go well for your daughters. The quick downturn for the automotive industry is one of the dog-eat-dog aspects of the free market system that is hard to take when you're on the receiving end of it. I can't say I'm in favor of propping up the car companies, however (as a Canadian observer) - here in my province of Nova Scotia, the government bailed out the Sydney Steel Company three times, and it still went belly-up.

I hope your daughters are able to keep their jobs.
It is a very scary time. My brother in law works at Toyota, and even though they are faring better than the "big three" - no one is immune, and I worry he may lose his job if things don't start to turn around soon.
