Judge me all you want, but I'm ecstatic!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My fiancé and I, against all odds, are purchasing a single wide trailer. We are currently in a single wide, but the one we're in now is two bedrooms, and the one we're buying is three bedrooms, 20 feet longer and two feet wider, and you wouldn't believe the difference that makes. We have four kids, three (two girls, one boy) share a room currently and the baby sleeps in our room. I know I probably sound like trash, but I'm not, just fell into hard times and now we're clawing our way out.
I honestly can't even believe we were approved for a loan. I'm so thankful and praise God everyday for improving our lives little by little. I'm a SAHM and in school at nights and online and I'm so encouraged by this small feat that I can't wait until we are able to improve our lives so much better!
So bash me if you must but you can't bring me down. And those who are down right now, know that it can and will improve. Even if that first step to getting back on your feet is as small as one extra room, 20 ft longer, and two feet wider.

Way to count your blessings! Congrats-----your on your way up now! ;) You will appreciate everything you get now so much more. You have been down and know how it feels, so you'll also be a better more compassionate person because of it. Just because we go through tough times, doesn't mean we can't take some good from it. You have the perfect outlook, and big things are ahead for you and your family!

Congrats, that's awesome! I know how it feels....we were able to upgrade from a 1000 sq ft house to a 1400 sq ft house, and I was so happy. We have 4 kids as well, that little bit of extra space really does make a difference!

Thank you! It's such an amazing feeling to know we're able to separate our son from our daughters. I was preparing to move my son's bed into the living room to give the girls the privacy they desperately need. I can't wait to decorate their rooms! And have space!

I see no reason to bash you and those that do are pathetic! It's a roof over your childrens heads..that's whats important. Keep up that good attitude and I'm sure more positive opportunities will come your way! Congrats Mama!

May I just say that I love your attitude?  True contentment comes not from having everything you want, but from learning to be greatful for all that you have.  Congratulations!

I have seen some classy double wides in my day.  LOL  My Grandparents actually lived in one, it was every bit as big as a house and sturdy.
