Oh, boy!!

Wow!! I have been just extremely stressed these past few months...

Let's see... Where do I begin? 1. Still facing the foreclosure and debating about what to do; 2. My son had a seizure again; 3. My husband has been having serious chest pains and has had to go back to the cardiologist to find out what is going on; and finally, my teenage daughter who has been through so much in her life and is finishing her senior year of high school is facing another serious trial.

We were devastated with the new trial.... And I'm afraid I cannot state what it is due to not having her permission as of yet. My husband and I cried for about two weeks straight. My heart is broken for my daughter made and the postponement of her dreams.... And, as most moms know, the dreams of our children become our dreams. I am grieved. However, I know a new dream will begin. I am sure.

We are adjusting. We are standing by her.

A young man who is 18 years old from our local high school just died in a dirt biking accident. It could be so much worse..... Life is so full and uncertain.

I am working on getting back at working out. I lost it during the past 3 weeks.... Completely and utterly lost it!! My husband and I kept commenting on how much we just wanted to eat ourselves into oblivion... But!! We didn't!!! I did, however have 2 Sangrias one night with dinner out with some friends!! ----Better than getting on an antidepressant for me right now!!

Thanks for listening!!

    Wow - you are under a lot of stress. I have been faced with forcloseure a couple of times - the last time was when my hubby was going on disability. I finally bit the bulltt - called the bank and set up payments that could not be missed - and called all the utiluty companies and did the same thing. For a year all i did was pay bills - very little else but I did it and I am sure you will figure out a way through all of this. Just remember how important your family is to you and that they are number 1!!Good luck!!

    I'm so sorry to hear about all the new troubles. Please try to hang on! You have learned how to take care of yourself and your family during times of great stress and you WILL get through this too. And so will your daughter. She will adapt and eventually triumph because she has seen you do it more than once. Good for you for fighting the urge to drown your sorrows in food. Good friends are priceless! Hang on!

    I'm so sorry to hear this...It seems when it rains it pours. Please hang in there. Better times are ahead. Its good that you and your husband lean on one another. Try to find things to be thankful for and don't let yourself think too much about "tomorrow". Each day will have enough to deal with. Take it one day at a time. "So, never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties."~Matthew 6:34. These words have always been comforting to me [I suffer with anxiety/panic disorder] so I will share them with you too. They are found in the same chapter of Matthew just a few verses above 34: "Who of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his life span? 28 Also, on the matter of clothing, why are you anxious? Take a lesson from the lilies of the field, how they are growing; they do not toil, nor do they spin; 29 but I say to you that not even Sol′o‧mon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these. 30 If, now, God thus clothes the vegetation of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much rather clothe you,...? 31 So never be anxious and say, ‘What are we to eat?’ or, ‘What are we to drink?’ or, ‘What are we to put on?’ 32 For all these are the things the nations are eagerly pursuing. For your heavenly Father knows YOU need all these things."

    I hope you find comfort in these hard times and remember there are people out here who care.
