Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

This is so stupid
Guess what I am doing? Applying for jobs. Why, you might ask, since I'm starting work in the next few days? Well, here's a lovely reason. The only way I can get unemployment is to make 2 job contacts a week. I just spoke to unemployment and this requirement remains in place even after being hired. I can't start yet due to legal requirements, so I'm sending out 2 resumes for jobs I won't be taking.
What an annoying waste of time. I can't even imagine what happens if my new employer finds out I'm posting resumes.......
Over the years I have noticed that when I have the least hope a rainbow appears. Rainbows are a wonderful combination of beauty, hope, happiness and rain, the product of ugly grey clouds that hide the beauty of the sky. The beauty that is a rainbow can only come with the presence of both rain and sun. Such is life with bipolar disorder. There are good times, there are tough times, and there are rainbows to remind us that beauty will return, sometimes fleetingly and sometimes for a long time. This blog is my story of sadness and hope. Please scroll down to "Who I Am" under Pages to read more about me and the people who populate this blog.
