Life is like a box of chocolate: you'll never know what you gonna get

Aint' that the truth? One of our family most favorite movie is "Forrest Gump".
In one of the most touching scenes,Forrest says: My Momma always said: "Life is like a box of chocolate! You'll never know what you gonna get".
Well, yesterday life threw a "curve ball" at us since Judi just found out that APX alarm had more then 150 lay off. She was one of the "unlucky" people to be let go.
It hurts because Judi had put a lot of passion and dedication in her new position. She really liked the company and the people she worked with. Unfortunately this is America where dreams can be built and broken during the same day.
The way I see it, APX alarm lost their best employee. We will be just fine because through challenges we have the opportunity to grow and learn.
Again, after all, we don't have to forget that "life is like a Box of chocolate: you'll never know what you gonna get!"
