I am sorry that I have not posted lately, things have been hectic, and last week was one of the toughest weeks we had faced since unemployment began in our lives.

As of this moment, my husband and I are both employed, he returned to work just today!  It is a blessing.  We are both trying to hang in there and work at the same time, but child care could become an issue, so we are taking one day at a time..... each day is definitely sufficient in it's own trouble.  I should finally receive my first paycheck after working for three weeks, this Thursday.

I have also had an infection in my lymph system that has been brutal in terms of burning, itching, and swelling.  I finished antibiotics, I may have to follow up with a doctor because all symptoms have not resolved....I am praying it is nothing more serious like cancer or something...so that has kept me up a little and caused some added stress.  All in all though, I am very blessed.  I hope that each of you are as well.  I have to say I appreciate everyone's encouragement....i did break down a little last week....into some tears, but God quickly resolved the things that were weighing most heavy on us at the time.

Thanks for hanging in there....I hope everyone enjoys their week.

  1. Hoping and praying for the best. So glad you have both found jobs, but I know the childcare is an issue. Hope you find some easy solution to it. Wishing you a better week and a happy paycheck!

  2. Sending prayers to you, May God bless you and help you with this infection.. and also help you with day care.. [It has been a long time, but, I so remember how difficult this is].
    So happy you and hubby found a job.. Praying for you both.

  3. So thankful you both found employment. How wonderful that first paycheck will be! Praying that your infection gets better and isn't anything worse. I know childcare can be difficult but the Lord will provide. Just take one day at a time. Sometimes a few cleansing tears can be helpful. Hang in there. You are doing great!
