Yep, life is pretty hard right now but don't worry.
I'm a survivor!
My family and I will emerge for this challenge bigger and better. We're going to pare down and live lean. We're going to focus on what's really important - meaning each other and our friends and family.
As long as we have a kitchen table, and a campfire, we'll be fine.
As long as we have a safe place to lay our heads at night, we'll be fine.
As long as we have a roof over our heads and some food in the oven, we'll be fine.
This situation is temporary. Hope is alive and well. And to tell the truth, it's not the worst thing that's ever happened to anyone and I should really just quit my whining about it. Occasional pain is part of life, and I've had a lot of it lately, but I'm still here, still laughing, still smiling, still loving my husband and kids.
Life is still good, and beats the alternative.
