I have made some decisions that have been very difficult to make but that I think will be very good in the long run.

The past month or so has been an emotional land-mine.

My husband still hasn't found work and we are both fighting depression.

I don't think I have lost any weight this week, but I don't think I've gained any either. I will find out when I weigh in tomorrow.

I think it is time for my walk so I can click off another couple of miles toward Subiaco and the monks. At least I'll feel as though I'm accomplishing something.

    Please keep up those walks. That is one thing I learned years ago from a very smart therapist after the death of my son. It has kept me (relatively) sane for a long time. There will always be set backs but "this too shall pass!"
Today I will carry you in my pocket as I practice for my 5 K Walk by taking a very long walk.

    Thank you both. I keep saying that God is our Provider. He knows our needs and He will provide.
He hasn't let us down yet, and I know He won't let us down in the future. He is mighty to save.
We've never been through this for this long a period of time.
It is definitely a test of faith and I keep looking in the scriptures for encouragement.
The one thing I know is that as long as I have the Lord, I have all the I need.

Thank you so much for coming alongside me right now. I hate that this stuff doesn't go along with my "HappyDoes" and my Sparkpage. So much has happened recently that blindsided me, and I am not a very strong Christian, but I am learning to be one.

Thank you again. emoticon

    Keep the faith. I've been unemployed for 2 years now. I'm a single Mom and everyday I remind myself that there are people worse off than me. I know this is not a permanent situation. I just cannot see the finish line yet. Things will turn around.

    All we can do is live today and make the best decisions that we can. I will pray that a job opportunity will open up for your husband. Even in the midst of challenging times we can be grateful for life, relationships, health. Blessings on your day and the days ahead. emoticon emoticon emoticon
