“Life can either be accepted or changed. If it is not accepted, it must be changed. If it cannot be changed, then it must be accepted.”
Change is inevitable... This past week, Derk and I found out some information that we were not to pleased with. Derks position as one of the buyer's was being "eliminated". Thanks to the economy for this... The good news, Derk was offered to take a management position at Gateway and keep the same pay he was getting. (only with crappier hours). Derk is WAY overqualified for this position. As for now, because we need the insurance and the money, Derk has held his head high and is determined to stay proud of who he is and support our family, and continue to work for a company that he has been with for 10 years. The thing is, he has worked so hard to get where he is, and now to be moved into management clearly tells us that there is NOWHERE to go up from here with this company. Derk will dominate the Gateway store, that I am sure of. He never settles for anything but the best. I am proud of you Derk for being such a strong person, I have not once heard Derk complain about this even though I know deep down, it is very hurtful and has caused him much stress. Thanks for always working so hard for our family and always staying true to yourself and being proud of who you are. You are truely dedicated and loyal.
