Hello to all of my myLot friends. I was not doing to great where I was, so I decided to move with some of my family members here in Colorado. I really like it here, and wish I could stay for a long while. But... My sister has a friend who lives in Iowa. Her friend has a great job for me. The pay is great, and I also have a place to live. No need to say more...but, I will miss my mother. My mother was diagnosed with ALS last year, and is in pretty bad shape. She is here in Colorado, and I just recently got reconnected with her, and the rest of my family. But, I am not able to fine good work here. So, my sister has done a great thing for me, and I am ready to go, but will miss my family. Have you all ever been in a situation like this? And if you have not, what do you all think of this? Thanks for your responses.

I have been in that situation. My husband got a job in Alabama for a while but all of my family is in NC so it was hard. But we just could not give the job up at the time. We always seem to end up back here in NC though, so we came back and I am close to my family again. It was nice though since it was only for a short time to see different things and go to a state I had never been to before that. It was kind of nice. You can always visit once you save up some money. =)

I loved both of those states. I feel like I am just leaving and not getting anything done. I am tired of that feeling. My family is loving but at times I feel like I am making it harder for them as well. We will see now that I moved to California.

It is definitely fine as long as there is someone to stay with you mother. A little sacrifice should go a long way, you will not be leaving States aren't you? So you can still go back to Colorado if you have enough money and if you have time. Just do the best at work and Good luck.

I been working for about 7 years away from my family. I went home once a year. Of course I hide my feelings for missing my parents and siblings. Until time comes that I decided to render voluntary resignation because I want to be with my family. Financial crisis coming to me, so again another hard situation. Another job offer I got, not on our country but abroad. What would I do, I need money to sustain our daily needs. I grab the opportunity and work abroad for 2 years. Now, again I'm about to leave the country again but another country my destination. I am almost leave, my visa and contract already in my hand but because my wife is about to deliver our first baby, she asked me to stay until she delivered our son. I canceled my flight and waiting my son to come out and see his parents.
