I recently quit my job. It was unhealthy and causing me great harm. That being said, it was also spur of the moment, and we weren't ready. My husband and children have stepped up, we are tightening our belts, and we are going to make it through together!
That being said, not being able to eat out four times a week, or being able to buy more "stuff", having to budget and plan, I believe is actually a blessing in disguise for us. One - we will be more in control of what we eat and it will cost less. Two - Because we are paring down, certain things are a given - doing our own maintenance, walking places instead of driving, yardwork, etc. built in exercise that we were not doing before!! And, Three - having less to work with helps us appreciate what we do have instead of always wanting more.
I am thankful to not have to go to work and be "beat up" anymore. I am thankful to be able take care of my family. I am thankful to know that even in the hard times, we pull together and do what needs to be done!
I have an awesome family.
