I know we all come across disappointments in our life, but sometimes, I feel like I give and give, even when I get nothing back - and that sets me up for disappointment. I love my husband completely, but sometimes it's very hard to like him. When I started bogging, I promised to blog the good, the bad, and the ugly.

So, here it is.......the last 3 months, has been very difficult on our family. David lost his job 3 months ago, and we have been living very sparingly since then. It has been tough, but our bills are being paid and we aren't going without. We have built up our savings and checking account over time. We have been stretching it to the limit, but we are still surviving and that's what matters.

I have kept my head up and have continued to stay strong though this time of hardship . We have tried very hard to not let this come in between our marriage, but is very hard when large purchases are made without the other's knowledge on things that are not needed. Maybe I am not seeing his side, or being to hard on him, but I've tried very hard to save our money and make this work. I pray daily, that today will be the day that he gets a job. I ask you all to pray for not only job placement, but also for our family.

I promise this will not be the death of me and I know WE can make it through.


  1. Came across your blog through Kingdome Twindom's. I just said a little prayer for your family. Stregnth for your marriage during this rough time, prayed that your hubby would find a job soon and just that God would 'guide and guard your families path' always. Sending a big hug your way!

    **going to follow you too (:

  2. Saying a prayer that your husband gets a job soon. Also sending prayers that you and your husband work things out. I know how you feel on the give, give, give and get nothing back sometimes. Hang in there.

  3. Saying a prayer for you and your family.

  4. Saying a prayer for you too! God is our provider!:)

  5. Saying a prayer for you. I know how you feel. We are really struggling right now and my husbands problem is he can't give up all the little things (stopping to get sodas and coffees and wanting to eat out instead of packing a lunch, etc). I feel like we could save so much if we could cut out the little things!
