But like my precious mother used to say "no matter how bad things are there is always someone somewhere worse off." That simple phrase has helped me through some of the most difficult times of my life over the years. It is helping me now as well.
Without getting into any details at all I will simply say that my husband and I are separated. He has been gone from the house since March 4th. Times are quite tough right now but I know that I will get through it. I turn everything over to God and I know that He can handle it and WILL see me and Steph through everything.
My precious daughter is living with me again. She continues to look for employment in this awful economy. She had an interview this morning at a local grocery store for a cashier position. Let's hope something comes from it, but if not, she'll just keep trying. She should know something today if she got the job or not. The next thing she is working on is driving and getting her license. Then it will be time for a vehicle in order to get back and forth to work. I know the right thing will happen as I put all of my trust in God and He never fails us. Even if we don't think our prayers have been answered because it's not what we want I know that it is what He wants.
I have also been able to come to terms with my son. We have been estranged for a long time now but his sister needs him and frankly I do too. That in itself is a blessing for he and I.
When you lay your head on your pillow tonight, if you are so inclined, please say a prayer for us. We are both having a hard time but together we will be fine.
