About Me

Greenville, North Carolina, United States
Hello, My name is Tracey. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and mother of three. I have taken photos of my children and family members for years. My love for photography became a passion when I received my first 35mm SLR from my wonderful husband for my 1st Mothers Day. Nothing captures a moment in time like a photograph. It is my desire to capture images that reflect life's moments as you remember it.

A Sad Day for Me...

I posted earlier about the layoffs that were to come @ my place of employment. Well, today they started. I watched 13 friends loose their jobs. It is so hard to sit @ my desk and pretend like it is "business as usual". I frankly don't feel like busting my butt to get work done knowing that any second someone could call me to the office and tell me that I am gone. I am very afraid right now. I know that God will look out for me and my family, but it is still scary. No question, that if I loose my job, my family would loose our health insurance. This is a BIG deal because Thomas gets allergy shots every week. Frank is self employed (general contractor). Business is slow. We would most likely loose our home (my dream home) as well. I know that the house is "stuff" and as long as I have my family, I will be okay. I just don't want to see my kids to have to give up the way they are used to living. I am very stressed right now...
I need everyone to say a prayer for me. While you are at it, please pray for my best friend's husband (Kim @ Blessed with Girls). He has been in the hospital this week. He also is employed by the same company I am. Their family faces the same stress that we are - plus he is sick and in the hospital. It is AWFUL!

Thanks for letting me whine... You can follow me on Twitter for updates during the day tomorrow...

I was at church a few weeks ago and the message was very powerful, it was Believe in God, he will take care of you and provide for you. He will provide you with food, it may not be steak and lobster but he will indeed take care of you. What a message that sent me. I own my own business and the economy has really brought or business down. I'm praying everyday for the US to recover. I will pray for your job as well. We are not supposed to worry and let God guide us. (I know, easier said than done).

Take care and just go home and enjoy your blessed family this weekend.

Hi this is my first time to visit your blog. Sorry to hear about your stresses. I will say a prayer for you when I pray tonight. I was noticing your blog button on down- syndrome and other topics. I was wondering where you get those. I would like to have one that says brain cancer or the brain cancer ribon. I have a 17 year old son who was diagnosed last april 2007. thanks so much
