Holding My Breath

I’m holding my breath.

As I’m writing this on Sunday night, I’m aware of an organization that tomorrow will go through staff layoffs.  I’m anxious for friends within the organization that might be laid off.  I’m also mindful of friends who will have the assignment to deliver bad news.  It’s going to be a difficult day for everyone concerned.

These are difficult times for lots of folks.  One of my twitter friends was called into a meeting Friday.  He’s a survivor, but noted that the parking lot will have empty spaces this week because others are not.

You also probably know people in organizations going through layoffs.

None of us are untouched, whether we’re directly affected or not.  We’re all grieving, whether we’ve lost our job, or friends or family have lost their job.

So tonight I’m holding my breath.  And praying.
