Life is hard sometimes

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.

Oh sweetie that is rough! It's not the end of the world though and I'm glad to hear you're still plugging along. Steph will get a job, it'll just take awhile and persistance. Don't give up hope, there's always some other mountain to conquer, just don't let it get you too down!

Karen said...

So sorry for all you're going through, TB. You and Steph will land on your feet! How awesome that you have each other.

You've been in my prayers, and now I know why. Bad times pass if we keep doing the next right thing and we don't let ourselves get stuck in place. I'm glad Steph is back home with you.

I am sorry TB. I have to say that this is shocking. I know how much you treasure your family. I am hoping that things can be resolved. Take care of yourself. Glad that Ryan and Steph are with you.

I am shocked, but I am sure that there is reason why. It will all work out for you. Glad Steph is around. You will be in my prayers ,

Amy said...

You and Steph will most definitely be in my prayers.

I realize this is of little meaning and comfort to you, but you have been on my mind for the past few weeks, I guess I know why...now.

Hope things start to look up for you and you are absolutely doing the right thing, placing it all in the Lord's hands!
