This Too Shall Pass!

Bridget
My All Star

It's gotten to the point that I have to classify our needs. I just want to cry! How do you decide what need is greater than others?

I would have to say that shelter and food are at the top of the list. Yet when the meter for the lights alerts you that you have less than a day of credit left, the others seem far less important. Than there is medicine, I hate to say it but I tend to go without mine so that we survive. I know that at the end of the day God will provide he always does. Yet, it's hard not to worry while I wait.

I feel bad that I am not doing a better job providing for my family right now. I can not provide my son with all the tools that he needs right now and it is taking a toll on me. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

I am sharing this with you because I don't want to lay this stress on my husband's shoulders. He tries so hard to be a great provider. To be honest I am not a woe is me person yet, I find this group to be a safe place that I can temporarily let down my 20 feet high, platinum walls and spew out everything that I am holding in.

Some of you may be reading this thinking that my life really isn't that bad and to be honest you are right! I know that there are many people out there that have far less and plates much fuller than mine. I know that this is only a season and seasons do not last. Now that I have a better perspective I will pull up my big girl panties, lace up my oh-sh*t boots and praise God for all the gifts in my life.

For I know this too shall pass!!!

BobinMO Thank you! I am at a loss for words so all I will say is THANK YOU!

Sharing your feelings and whining are completely different things, this is something that I've just determined in the last few years. Sharing how we feel at that moment is one of the hardest things we can do, yet one of the most rewarding. It helps us clear our mind and allows to see the situation from a different perspective rather than replaying the same thought loop in our minds. \r\n\r\nYou are doing the best you can with what you have and like Bob said, you are preparing for the best that is yet to come!

Thank you for your words. I really never looked at it that way. \"this is YOUR life. This is YOUR situation and you are entitled to YOUR feelings.\" I always that of myself weak for feeling that way. I know, i know not a good way to look at it. :) I am printing of the words that are on your plaque. I think I would benefit from seeing that daily.

Trish, Sadly we are in the middle class area. We make too much for help but not enough to get everything that we need. I will look into the pharmaceutical companies though. ~Thank you!

Thanks Richard. I believe that was me projecting my own guilt for complaining when I know others are going though even harder seasons. I appreciate your honesty.
