    Sad day for Laura


    My friend/ boss just told me today that as of Tues. 9/6, he will not own the martial arts business that my son and I have been a part of for the past 7+ years.

    My #1 concern is for Joshua right now. My paycheck, as little as it is, went for "my pleasure", which actually means- it goes to my kids.

    It is very hard to see a friend work so hrad for something they belive in, for so long, just up and sell everything. He has been a HUGE part of our lives, it will be very hard to see him leave . It really hurts. (major water works now...)

    I'm so sorry. I know it will be hard to replace such a close friend/boss/instructor.
    They call me "Nana"

    MMA is awesome, love that stuff.

    just remember, no matter what, the friendship doesn't have to end. you can get another job, your son can enroll in another program.

    keep your chin up.

    He has his house up for sale and wants to move about an hour away. He is just tired of the business part of it. It wasn't fun anymore for him. He said that he needs to move on with his life and go on to bigger and better things.
