Welcome to my blog. This is new to me and I welcome any ideas that will make it better. I have been a single parent most of my life, and now that my children are grown life is changing. As parents we sacrifice quite a bit, as a single parent you sacrifice a lot. I find that now that my children are grown and moving on, my life has very little direction, and my health is declining. Right now I have been out of work for 9 months. I find it is really hard to find work when you are over 40 and on the heavy side. Everywhere I look most companies are hiring 20 somethings. Any ideas or directions? Please leave your comments.
