God is good! In fact God is GREAT!!!
He meets my every need. I am blessed.
I have a part time job that I love. A full time job that I love and I go back to Aug. 25th. I will be able to keep the part time job too, if I want. My daughter is home after spending 3 months in Kentucky with her sister. Her sister and her husband have moved back to Vegas and are living with me. Two of them are working and the other one is looking for a job. My home is filled with family, friends, pets, and so much love!!!

So why could I possibly be this stressed????

I mentioned part of this in a previous blog. At the beginning of the summer (Memorial Day Weekend) my husband decided to move out. Long story, but it was for the best. I love him and want to live a long happy life with him, but right now I can't live with him and when given some choices, moving out was what he chose.

So, I started the summer with no money, no job, and was behind in all of my bills. . . God is good. As He promises, He HAS met ALL of my needs. It has been a tight summer financially, but I had found a part time job and with some help from family and friends, I have made it through the last two months with confidence. Only 1 month to go till I go back to work full time. . . .

Now the stress has set in. I have exhausted all of my help options. My utilities are close to being shut off, again. As wonderful as it is too have all the kids (and their pets) here, I am feeling VERY overwhelmed. We are having a family meeting this morning.... My girls are 20 and my son in law is 23. But they have all reverted to being kids again. They are home so they have started slipping back into the child mindset. I can't believe I am going to have to have a "chat" to remind them that I shouldn't have to do ALL of the cooking, cleaning, feeding animals, cleaning up after animals, paying the bills, buying the groceries, .....well, you get the picture!

Yesterday I was on the verge of tears ALL day. I had a really really really bad day! But today is a new day. I am going to have breakfast with the family. Then a family meeting. Then I am going to call all of the utility companies and see what kind of extensions I can get. Then I am calling my church to see what help I might be able to get there. Then I am going to call my brother and ask for a loan. Then I am going to go to work. I think tonight I am going to soak in a nice hot bath and then let all of the stress go down the drain with the bath water. At least this morning I am feeling a little more hopeful!

Lord, please give me strength and guidance. But not so much strength that I forget to lean on you. And not so much guidance that I forget to do my part.

Ok, here I go, wish me luck!!! It is only 8:30 and I am so tired and overwhelmed. But I CAN DO THIS!!! I AM WOMAN!!! ROAR!!!
