We're survivors

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.

Goodness. I just want to give you a hug. I cried over the posts about the cats. But I'm glad to see that you're okay today. You will survive. You will.

You're fine as you are but you'll be even better when all this is done.

Actually...you are an inspiration...thank you for sharing your life with us... in some way you are most likely helping others! Hugs!

Of course you will survive. You are a strong family unit, and this is just another ADVENTURE in your life. I think you should document (pics) this move, and when all is said and done - eveyone will realize there is always an upside.

Your optimism is inspiring- I can hardly complain about anything in my life and I have you to thank. (oh, I'll probably still complain but I'll feel guilty doing it =)

You have the right attitude. I've had so many setbacks and all of them have been hard but temporary. Yours will be too. I'm glad your family is so strong.

While the story of the cats was so heart breaking, reading this makes me feel so good for you. You are strong and what you have said is all true, you have the things in life that are most important, you are rich in love.
Life's journeys take us places we never imagined, you will be fine.
