  • you'll always have tough times,just varying degrees

  • There will always be difficult struggles and tough times we must overcome. It is how we handle them and what we take from them that makes the difference.

  • There is no timeline. I'm sorry if there are things you are struggling with now, it often seems that some people have more then their fair share of hard times.

  • I don't remember if I've talked to you before. Do you believe in God? Are you familiar with the book of Job? You might find some comfort there. Job suffered horribly, and none of it was his fault. God was allowing him to be tested by the devil. I have felt that way before (although I've never lost my whole family in one shot like Job), and what I learned was that I had to just trust that He would bring me through it. Last October my DH lost his job, then his unemployment benefits were denied. I am a nursing student and not working until I graduate this December, so that left us with no income at all. A few weeks later my car blew a head gasket. With no income, we could not afford to pay for COBRA, so we lost our insurance. We both have pre-existing conditions and we have two small children, so we had no choice but to ask for Medicaid and food assistance (continued).

  • (continued) Just enough money came through at just the right times (DH did get his sick pay, then my PELL grant for school came through and it was released to me since I had earned a scholarship that paid my expenses). My parents let us take their old car on a long-term loan. A job came through for DH about 2 1/2 months into this, but he lost it two weeks later because he stayed home with our sick child twice (we were taking turns - he was sick for a week and a half). Four and half months after he lost his job, another one came through. A month later our Legal Aid attorney got the unemployment decision reversed, so we were able to repay most of what we had borrowed to get through this. We never missed a house payment, a credit card payment, or had a utility shut off. God brought us through. Whatever you are going through, He will walk with you through it. You can PM me if you want and I'll pray for you. {{HUGS}}

  • When asked why so many bad things happened in life, Buddha said "We cannot appreciate the light unless we have been in the dark. We cannot know what is good until we know what is bad." From our struggles we gain strength and insight. We learn something that we need to know. It's the nature of life that there are stretches of bad before our luck turns up towards the good. It is surviving the dark night of the soul in order to see the enlightenment.
